Hospitals Aren't Best Place For Heart Attack

Researchers say you have a better chance of surviving cardiac arrest caused by an abnormal heart rhythm on an airplane or in a casino than in a hospital.

The difference is automated defibrillators, and staff nearby that are trained to use them, explains Dr. Mary Ann Peberdy of the Medical College of Virginia, Richmond.

The Virginia Commonwealth University- associated medical professor says victims who keel over in a hospital wait an average five minutes for "code" teams to respond with defibrillators, devices that can shock a person's heart back to normal rhythm.

In contrast, studies in gambling casinos - with their automated "smart" defibrillators, trained personnel, and routine camera monitoring - show an average time of under three minutes.

Survivability after cardiac arrest decreases an estimated 10 percent for every minute the patient is in ventricular fibrillation.

Both airports in Chicago have automated defibrillators, and company officials say Delta, American and Continental flights will soon carry them as well.
