Temporal changes in the epidemiology and system response to traumatic out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) over the last two decades may be associated with improvements in patient outcomes. Examining these changes are important for identifying the future direction of prehospital management for traumatic OHCA patients. In this session, I will present and discuss the findings of the impact of temporal changes in the epidemiology and management of traumatic OHCA on survival outcomes between 2001 and 2018 in Victoria, Australia, using data from the Victorian Ambulance Cardiac Arrest Registry.
