Abstract
The majority of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs) occur in residential locations, but knowledge about strategic placement of automated external defibrillators in residential areas is lacking. We examined whether residential OHCA areas suitable for placement of automated external defibrillators could be identified on the basis of demographic characteristics and characterized individuals with OHCA in residential locations.
We studied 4828 OHCAs in Copenhagen between 1994 and 2005. The incidence and characteristics of OHCA were examined in every 100 x 100-m (109.4 x 109.4-yd) residential area according to its underlying demographic characteristics. By combining > or =2 demographic characteristics, it was possible to identify 100 x 100-m (109.4 x 109.4-yd) areas with at least 1 arrest every 5.6 years (characterized by >300 persons per area and lowest income) to 1 arrest every 4.3 years (characterized by >300 persons per area, lowest income, low education, and highest age). These areas covered 9.0% and 0.8% of all residential OHCAs, respectively. Individuals with OHCA in residential locations differed from public ones in that the patients were older (70.6 versus 60.6 years; P

Abstract
During the first decade of the new millennium the intense reorganisation of hospitals and of medical care will be replaced by stability and long-term goals. An anaesthesiologist is now as active outside as within the operating theatre, being a predominant resource in intensive care, pain management, and emergency and prehospital care. The anaesthesiologist will also have a key part to play in risk analysis of patients scheduled for various kinds of advanced treatment. Anaesthesiologists are now also more involved in primary home care where, together with other physicians and categories of health care providers, they offer qualified treatment of various diseases at home--the environment preferred by the patient.
