Thomas D. ReaUniversity of Washington: Physician, Associate Professor of Medicine; Emergency Medical Services Division - Public Health Seattle & King County–Program Medical Director*In the past, I have received modest grants from Philips Inc and PhysioControl to evaluate changes in resuscitation protocols. These investigations did not support evaluation of proprietary equipment. I am an investigator in the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium so participate in studies evaluating dynamic CPR feedback available in a Philips defibrillator and the impedance threshold device which is developed and owned by a private company. These studies are funded primarily by the NIH and I receive no support from private industry related to these research activities. I participate in a trial of chest compression alone versus chest compression plus ventilation supported in part by the Laerdal Foundation. Collectively I receive < 5% of my salary from these research activities.*We recently completed an AED training study for which Philips and PhysioControl provided equipment. I did not directly receive any equipment as part of the research activity.NoneNoneNone*I participate as part of a DSMB in a trial sponsored by Philips Inc to evaluate quantitative VF waveform algorithm to guide care. I receive no financial support as part of the DSMB.

Dana P. EdelsonUniversity of Chicago Assistant ProfessorCURRENT RESEARCH GRANTS Pending NHLBI Career Development Award Strategies to Predict and Prevent In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (1K23HL097157–01) This study is to validate a clinical judgment based tool for predicting impending clinical deterioration of hospitalized floor patients and compare it to previously described physiology-based tools. Role: PI (funds delivered to university). 2009–present Philips Healthcare Research Grant Advancements in CPR and Emergency Care during Hemodynamic Crisis The purpose of this project is to measure capnography and pulse pressure, using a novel plethysmographic sensor, in critically ill patients and correlate quality of CPR with these measures during CA. Role: PI (funds delivered to university) 2008–present Philips Healthcare Research Grant Q-CPR Users & Development Research Alliance The purpose of this project is to establish a multi-center registry of in-hospital resuscitation quality data and a network for clinical trials of resuscitation. Role: PI (funds delivered to university) 2008–present NIH Clinical Research Loan Repayment Granted two years of student loan repayment aims to evaluate the effects of integrated team debriefing using actual performance data to improve CPR quality and patient survival following IHCA.Role: PI (funds delivered to loan servicing program) 2007–present AHA Scientist Development Grant Improving CPR Quality and Patient Outcomes Using a Novel Educational Program This project aims to evaluate the effects of integrated team debriefing using actual performance data to improve CPR quality & patient survival following IHCA. Role: PI (funds delivered to university) 2008–2009 NlH Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Immersive Simulation Team Training–Impact on Rescue, Recovery and Safety Culture (5U18HS016664–02) The goal is to study the effects of simulation based training for Rapid Response Teams.

  • This table represents the relationships of writing group members that may be perceived as actual or reasonably perceived conflicts of interest as reported on the Disclosure Questionnaire, which all members of the writing group are required to complete and submit. A relationship is considered to be “significant” if (a) the person receives $ 00 or more during any 12-month period, or 5% or more of the person's gross income; or (b) the person owns 5% or more of the voting stock or share of the entity, or owns $10 000 or more of the fair market value of the entity. A relationship is considered to be “modest” if it is less than “significant” under the preceding definition.
