  1. p < 0.05
  2. aA positive value for race suggests that African-Americans took longer to receive resuscitation. A positive value for gender suggests that females took longer to receive resuscitation. A positive value for transfer from outside hospital indicates that outside transfer took longer to receive resuscitation
