Rarity of Respiratory Arrest in ED?

Abstract Statistical analysis of monthly rates of events in around 20 hospitals and over a period of about 10 years shows that respiratory arrest, though about five times less frequent than cardio-respiratory arrest, is a common occurrence in the Emergency Department of a typical smaller UK hospital.

  1. You can find a “public” (scientific paper) version of my report here: http://arxiv.org/abs/1407.2731 There may be updated versions in the future, and that link will always take you to the latest version. This “arXiv” version also contains links to the data-set and to the statistical programming scripts (written in the statistical programming language R), which are all posted on internet too, so that anyone can check my calculations, do other calculations, do better or other analyses.

    I will probably update the data-set in the future: data from some other hospitals needs to be processed and added; data from Horton General hospital needs to be added.
