Haunted EMS Stations?

I'll admit it: I'm a sucker for ghost stories. In general, I'd like to think of myself as a little too rational to buy into some of those stories, but then I find myself hearing or reading them with goosebumps. So when Guy Haskell sent me his column this month, I definitely got that familiar sense of dread imagining what…See More

OSHA Update at 2012 FRM

JEMS Editorial Board member Kathy West is telling Fire-Rescue Med attendees the facts about OSHA updates and infection control. For example, did you know healthcare workers are to receive a one-time only booster of Tdap? Some attendees have been sold extra boosters. West explains the idea of "immunologic memory." Often times there's no need for a booster. Make sure you know what you need so you don't waste money for needless boosters.West offers a helpful search to check out the facts. At…See More

2010 ECCU: What's next for cardiac care

Everyone is still abuzz about the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines release at this year's Emergency Cardiovascular Care Update (ECCU) conference in San Diego, Calif. Thus far, we've celebrated cardiac arrest survivors, awarded three pioneers of external cardiac massage and of course, discussed the hottest cardiovascular topics.

Thoughts from the Eagles





With the ability to impact the care provided to more than 80 million people, it’s irrefutable that people listen when the “Eagles” speak.
