EMS World August 2020

EMS World August 2020 cover

August's issue theme is safety, and its cover story considers the lasting changes COVID-19 might bring to EMS life once the pandemic is over. Other components look at body-worn cameras and operations in extreme heat, while additional features tackle statistics, long QT syndrome, and Mental Health First Aid, and the CE article discusses hypercoagulopathy in COVID patients. This month's columns and departments include Resident Eagle, Journal Watch, Student Corner, Leader's Digest, and Association Update.
