The impact of COVID-19 on myocardial infarctions, strokes and out-of-hospital cardiopulmonary arrests: an observational retrospective study on time-sensitive disorders in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region (Italy)

The COVID-19 global pandemic has changed dramatically the way time-sensitive diseases are handled. With a predicted decrease in calls to the Emergency Medical Services of the Friulia Giulia area, people's anxiety about contracting the virus and hospital reorganisation have resulted in a significant decrease in contacts between citizens and the healthcare system. In FVG, an observational cross-sectional analysis was conducted taking into account the time between March 1, 2020, and May 31, 2020, the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the same period in 2019. Despite a reduced number of emergency response responses, the number of calls to the EMS was noticeably higher. The number of cardiac arrests treated with advanced CPR was smaller, but mortality was higher.
