Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Clinical sites enrolled patients during a run-in period with the first patient enrolled on June 7, 2007. The run-in period ranged from from 2 to 6 months across the sites. The last patient was enrolled in the evaluable phase on November 6, 2009. All patients were enrolled in the pre-hospital EMS setting.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Analyze Early + ITD Analyze early: upon EMS (emergency medical services) arrival at the scene of a non-traumatic cardiac arrest, the EMS providers assess the cardiac rhythm as soon as possible. Approximately thirty seconds of CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) may be done prior to an assessment of the cardiac rhythm to determine whether a defibrillatory shock is required. Use of ITD (Impedance Threshold Device) by EMS providers in the prehospital setting.
Analyze Early + Sham Analyze early: upon EMS arrival at the scene of a non-traumatic cardiac arrest, the EMS providers assess the cardiac rhythm as soon as possible. Approximately thirty seconds of CPR may be done prior to an assessment of the cardiac rhythm to determine whether a defibrillatory shock is required. Use of a sham ITD by EMS providers in the pre-hospital setting.
Analyze Early, Not in ITD vs Sham Analyze early. Upon EMS arrival at the scene of a non-traumatic cardiac arrest, the EMS providers assess the cardiac rhythm as soon as possible. Approximately thirty seconds of CPR may be done prior to an assessment of the cardiac rhythm to determine whether a defibrillatory shock is required. Neither an ITD nor sham device used.
Analyze Later + ITD Analyze later: upon the EMS arrival at the scene of a non-traumatic cardiac arrest, three minutes of CPR is done prior to the assessment of the cardiac rhythm to determine whether a defibrillatory shock is required. Use of Impedance Threshold Device by EMS providers in the pre-hospital setting.
Analyze Later + Sham Analyze later: upon the EMS arrival at the scene of a non-traumatic cardiac arrest, three minutes of CPR is done prior to the assessment of the cardiac rhythm to determine whether a defibrillatory shock is required. Use of a sham ITD by EMS providers in the pre-hospital setting.

Not in AEvAL, ITD Device Upon the EMS arrival at the scene of a non-traumatic cardiac arrest, local policy determines the length of CPR done prior to the assessment of the cardiac rhythm to determine whether a defibrillatory shock is required. Impedance Threshold Device used by EMS providers in the pre-hospital setting.
