Primary and co-primary Investigators: Novack L. (SUMC), Novack V. (SUMC), Jaffe E (MDA)

We explored the records of calls to EMS due to out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the entire Israel for the period of 2016-2017. The events were likely to be linked to higher temperatures in summer, lower temperature in winter, lower humidity and air pollution.
