EMS World January 2018


The first issue of 2018 focuses on airway management and pediatrics. Pediatric content features a look at the pit crew model's benefit in pediatric cardiac arrest, tips for using the Broselow tape, and the advanced technology deployed by Florida's St. Joseph's Children's Hospital. In the airway realm, we examine a new acronym for predicting difficult airways. New columns for 2018 include coverage of international EMS and the Promoting Innovation in EMS (PIE) project; the Trip Report and Midlife Medic return; and special features look at a major reimbursement change from Anthem and remember our late friend Lou Jordan.
