EMS World July 2019

July 2019 EMS World cover

The July issue has a focus on administration and operations, with features on the DEA's controlled-substance regulations and a standardized new bag for providers in Florida's Pinellas County. The cover report profiles a successful rural EMS system in Oregon, while other articles look at nitrous oxide as an analgesic, the instructional scaffolding approach to education, and a new EMS-led accountable care network in Ohio. A CE article covers unplanned extubation. Among columns, EMS Around the World travels to Russia.
