Ambulance response times due to neighborhood


A new study suggest an ambulances response time may depend on the neighborhood you live in.

Researchers in California examined data from nearly 64,000 patients in 46 states. They all suffered cardiac arrest and called 911. It took ambulances nearly 4 minutes longer to arrive in low-income neighborhoods, compared to the wealthy ones.

Researchers focused on cardiac arrest patients, because they say that is a situation, where every minute counts for survival.
