Description:
The National Ambulance Service (NAS) serves a population of almost 4.6 million people in the Republic of Ireland, the service responds to over 300,000 ambulance calls each year. The NAS employs over 1,600 staff across 100 locations and has a fleet of approximately 500 vehicles. Emergency Medical Services attempt resuscitation on just under 2000 Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) cases each year. Over the past two years the National Ambulance service has engaged with both the country’s leading resuscitation experts and our international counterparts in a collaborative project focused on developing and expanding the National Ambulance Services response to out of hospital cardiac arrest. The One Life Project not only represents our commitment to improve standards of care it also represents our commitment to measure and publicly report on clinical outcomes of patients.
