Abstract
To examine the relation of electroencephalographic abnormalities to 5-year outcomes in first-episode psychosis (FEP).
Patients (n = 103) had their baseline electroencephalogram (EEG) classified by modified Mayo Clinic criteria. Symptoms and psychosocial functioning were rated after 5 years of treatment.
Dysrhythmic EEG was associated with persistence in positive and negative symptoms of psychoses and poorer psychosocial functioning at 5-year follow-up, independently of other characteristics, such as duration of untreated illness or premorbid adjustment. A higher percentage of people with comorbid substance use disorder had normal EEG.
Abnormal baseline EEG in FEP is associated with poorer 5-year symptomatic and functional outcome.

Abstract
There is uncertainty around the types of interventions that are provided by emergency medical services (EMS) to children during prehospital transport. We describe the patient characteristics, events, interventions provided and outcomes of a cohort of children transported by EMS.
This prospective cohort study was conducted in a city of 750 000 people with a 2-tiered EMS system. All children
