    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

Rural patients wait longest for EMS

The average interval between a call to 911 and arrival on the scene of emergency medical services (EMS) is 7 minutes in the United States, but patients in rural areas wait as long as 30 minutes for help to arrive. The results of a study of EMS records from 2015 were published in July in JAMA Surgery (“Emergency Medical Service Response Times in Rural, Suburban and Urban Areas”).

“Those 7 minutes – or even longer in rural areas – are ripe for bystander intervention, especially for bystanders trained in first aid and/or CPR,” said one of the study’s authors, Howard Mell, MD, FACEP, a spokesperson for The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP).

The study, which analyzed 1.7 million EMS runs in the US, concluded that average wait time for EMS to arrive in suburban and urban areas was 6 minutes, while the average wait time in rural areas was more than double that, at 13 minutes. Nearly 1 in ten 911 calls in rural zip codes resulted in waits of nearly 30 minutes. The authors point out that in cases of severe bleeding, life-threating allergic reactions, cardio-pulmonary arrest, or other time sensitive illnesses or injuries, bystanders need to be ready to help while waiting for the ambulance.

“A new public education campaign called ‘Until Help Arrives’ was designed to empower laypersons to provide care to the ill and injured until EMS personnel arrive,” said Dr. Mell. “This program can be helpful to all communities, particularly those in rural areas where the wait for EMS can be so long. Recognizing that you are the help until help arrives may be lifesaving.”

ACEP is the national medical specialty society representing emergency physicians and the millions of patients they serve. ACEP is committed to advancing emergency care through continuing education, research and public education. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, ACEP has 53 chapters representing each state, as well as Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. A Government Services Chapter represents emergency physicians employed by military branches and other government agencies.
