EMS Technology for the Wilderness
(1 hour)

With all of the EMS gadgets that come and go, how do you know what to buy and what to take to the wilderness?  This presentation looks at many of the technologies that are available to EMS, but when do you break your budget and your back to carry these tools to the wilderness to provide better patient care? 

 

OBJECTIVES:

1) Discuss some current and new EMS technologies.

2) Discuss how to evaluate if an EMS technology is appropriate for patient care in the Wilderness.
