EMS World September 2020

EMS World September 2020 cover

September's show issue announces the annual National EMS Awards of Excellence and finalists for the EMS World Innovation Awards, and contains our annual compendium of original research from the Prehospital Care Research Forum. The cover story reviews predictions for the future of EMS made 20 years ago, while other features cover hyperkalemia, protest injuries, social media, and a COVID-19-related spike in freeway crashes. This month's columns and departments include EMS Around the World, Journal Watch, Resident Eagle, Association Update, and Hall of Fame.
