Peter Curson is certainly professor of population and security at the Centre for International Security Research, University of Sydney, and emeritus professor of medical geography at Macquarie University, Sydney. Contact: Professor Peter Curson.. A pandemic of human fear and anxiety Is a flu pandemic looming and if so should we get worried? It is today 41 years since we experienced the last pandemic of flu and many believe that we are overdue for the next one. But have we over-reacted to the present outbreak of swine flu? Like Bird Flu it could seem that people are confronted by not one pandemic but two.If the price of survival is normally improved by the dissemination of public-access AEDs, it is vital to execute an economic analysis also. Investigators in the PAD trial estimated that the cost-effectiveness of public-gain access to defibrillation was similar to that of various other medical interventions.32 In conclusion, this large, population-based, observational research showed that nationwide dissemination of public-access AEDs increased the frequency of the administration of shocks by using public-access AEDs and contributed to improved outcomes following out-of-hospital ventricular-fibrillation arrests of cardiac origin that were witnessed by bystanders.
