TI  - The association between the first locating emergency ambulance being single
      crewed and cardiac arrest outcomes in New Zealand.

AB  - AIM: This study investigated the association between the first locating emergency
      ambulance being single crewed on outcomes following out-of-hospital cardiac
      arrest in New Zealand. METHOD: Using data from the St John cardiac arrest
      registry for the period of 1 October 2013 to 30 June 2015, cases were included if
      a resuscitation attempt was made and the patient was an adult. Logistic
      regression modelling was used to account for confounding factors. The primary
      outcome was survival to hospital discharge. RESULTS: A total of 2,347 cases were 
      included. There was no difference in the rate of return of spontaneous
      circulation sustained to hospital handover in patients attended by either
      single-crewed (27%) or double-crewed ambulances (32%); p=0.059. However, patients
      were significantly less likely to survive to hospital discharge when attended by 
      single-crewed (12%) compared to double-crewed ambulances (17%) with an OR of
      0.533, 95% confidence interval 0.320-0.888 and p=0.016. CONCLUSION: Patients had 
      lower survival to hospital discharge outcomes when the first locating ambulance
      was single crewed than those where the first locating ambulance was double
      crewed.
