on this trial. My institution receives support for 20% of my time and the remaining funds are used for other members of our
staff and supplies. My role is to advise them on human subject protection issues and to assist with data management and report
generation for the trial)

*In the past, I have received unrestricted (modest) grant support from Philips Inc and PhysioControl. The topics were related
to improving resuscitation generally (changing resuscitation protocols) and not specific to proprietary information or equipment.
I am currently an investigator in the ROC. As part of this, I am directly involved in the Feedback Trial to evaluate dynamic
fdbk available on the Philips MRX. The ROC is also evaluating the impedance threshold device. These studies are supported
by the NIH primarily and I receive no support from Philips or the company that makes the impedance threshold device. I am
participating in a trial of chest compression only vs chest compression plus ventilation for dispatch-assisted CPR-supported
in part by Laerdal Foundation. I receive less than 5% salary support
*We conducted an AED training study that recently completed where Philips and PhysioControl contributed equipment for the research.
I did not receive any of this equipment
None None None *I serve on a DSMB for a trial sponsored by Philips to evaluate quantitative VF waveform algorhithm to guide care. I receive
no support for this effort in order to minimize (eliminate) any conflict

  • This table represents the relationships of writing group members that may be perceived as actual or reasonably perceived conflicts
    of interest as reported on the Disclosure Questionnaire, which all members of the writing group are required to complete and
    submit. A relationship is considered to be “significant” if (a) the person receives $10 000 or more during any 12-month period,
    or 5% or more of the person’s gross income; or (b) the person owns 5% or more of the voting stock or share of the entity,
    or owns $10 000 or more of the fair market value of the entity. A relationship is considered to be “modest” if it is less
    than “significant” under the preceding definition.
