New research by Health Policy student and faculty asks whether advanced life support ambulances actually save more lives

A study written by Prachi Sanghavi (ESS, G6) and faculty members Anupam B. Jena, MD, PhD; Joseph P. Newhouse, PhD, and  Alan M. Zaslavsky, PhD was recently featured in TIME, PBS Newshour, Harvard Medicine News and published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

The study finds people with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest who were treated by an advanced life support (ALS) ambulance are more likely to die and to have poor neurological outcomes than those treated by basic life support, or BLS, ambulances, which use less-sophisticated treatment techniques.
