EMS World May 2021

May 2021 EMS World cover

The May issue begins with a profile of a novel mobile ECMO program in Minneapolis/St. Paul and spotlights two key EMS Week themes with articles on simulation standards in EMS education and a Nevada service's emphasis on safety. Other features look at aortic dissection and excerpt a tale of National Park rescue, and the CE article concludes our look at back pain. Columns include Resident Eagle, Journal Watch, Leader's Digest, Vendor Viewpoint, and The Edge, and we induct two more to the EMS Hall of Fame.
