EMS World October 2017

In this special EMS World Expo Show Issue, EMS World presents the recipients of the esteemed National EMS Awards of Excellence, profiles the finalists of the EMS World Innovation Awards and presents a first-of-its-kind research section full of scientific abstracts of original studies pertaining to the EMS field. Our cover story delves into the thorny issue of outfitting EMS providers with body armor. Timely features cover an MIH program for the incarcerated and the importance of establishing strong evidence behind EMS interventions. Finally we continue our series on acute stroke management and begin one on keys to leadership success.
