Protocol publication

[…] Descriptive statistics were used to describe the characteristics of the exercise-related SCA cases. Associations between arrest characteristics and survival to hospital discharge were examined using Pearson's χ2 or Fisher's exact test. A p value of <0.05 was considered significant for a two-sided test. Statistical analyses were performed using SPSS V.19 except where contingency tables were larger then 2×2, in which case the Fisher's exact probability test at VassarStats was used (http://vassarstats.net).To allow comparison of survival with previously published LAS cardiac arrest figures and other previous studies, an Utstein comparator definition was used. The definition includes cardiac arrests where resuscitation is attempted and cardiac aetiology is presumed, are bystander witnessed, and where the presenting cardiac rhythm is ventricular fibrillation (VF) or ventricular tachycardia (VT). Inclusion of cases according to the Utstein reporting template is presented in . […]
