Mobile Stroke Units: Concept, Implementation, Results

As EMS and healthcare continues to evolve, so will the future of our EMS health systems in specifically dealing with stroke patients. On average, someone in the United States has a stroke every 40 seconds. Education, detection, and the speed at which our healthcare providers can determine the type of stroke will ultimately better our ability to increase brain time and save patient lives.
Non-Invasive Ventilation: Huff and Puff and Blow the House Down

Non-Invasive Ventilation: Huff and Puff and Blow the House Down

CPAP, BiPAP and high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) therapy are all non-invasive ventilation (NIV) tools that save lives. Discover the history of NIV, see the various NIV tools, patient selection criteria, standards of care, assessment, application, troubleshooting and NIV training tips. Disposable CPAP devices, BiPAP units and soon-to-be available prehospital HFNC units can drastically improve outcomes when used appropriately. Mike McEvoy will show you how NIV can improve the care you provide to patients.

Response Times? Pfft! Bring on the Clinical Benchmarks!

Response Times? Pfft! Bring on the Clinical Benchmarks!

We know that response times aren't the only (or even best) way to measure the clinical performance of our EMS systems. It's not like we don't know what to measure. Several very good clinical benchmarks have been published, giving us a great starting place. It is now up to us to find a way to measure and use them to improve our practices. Join Dr. Jeff Jarvis, an EMS physician, paramedic and self-proclaimed data geek as he covers topics including: Limitations of response times as the sole indicator for system performance; Common clinical benchmarks and why they are important; How to improve our practices by harnessing the data our systems provide us; Current limitations on benchmarking metrics across multiple systems. Dr. Jarvis will also engage the audience in a group discussion of how to best define the essential elements of these measurements.
