EMS Garage Episode 185: EMS in the New Decade

One of the most controversial topics in the world of EMS today is whether or not we should arm EMTs and paramedics or rather, should we allow those who possess conceiled carry permits carry on the job?  And furthermore, in whose hands should this decision rest in?  Lawmakers?  Department leaders?  The individual?

This week, Scott turns over the podcast to the Geekymedic Chris Montera and Sean Eddy which allows the pair to engage in a spirited debate on the utlimate question: should we arm them?

Also, stay tuned after the closing music for a little nugget from the cutting room floor. . .

First, Jamie has on the Mangar Elk, an airbag based patient lifting device to save EMS provider’s backs from lifting and patient moving injuries. The device is easy to setup and easy to use but a single provider or a pair of providers.

PlayPlay

In case you missed it. Today Ferno announced the COOLEST product to hit the market in years. The iNX is a patient transport system. This is not your ordinary COT.  No it is the way we will make EMS future proof. This product culminates years of research. Ferno is truly leading the way in this area. Guess what fans, this cot locks into our normal cot interface and will reduce your lifting to ZERO. Yes…zero. I have used this cot and it works flawless. I am truly impressed with what Ferno has done for us in the EMS industry.

EMS Garage Episode 178: CES 2014 Coverage Dexcom

Terry Gregg, CEO of Dexcom, chats with Chris Montera about the new continuous glucose monitoring system from Dexcom debuting at the International CES conference earlier this month in Las Vegas. The Dexcom G4 Platinum glucose monitor is the all-new Continuous Glucose Monitor featuring an extended 20 foot wireless range, glucose trends on a video monitor in vibrant color and a sleek and small receiver available in three colors – Classic Black, Ocean Blue, and Tickled Pink.

Continuous glucose monitoring is important for diabetes patients because their bodies lack the ability to monitor and regulate their glucose levels on their own. With the new “Share Cradle,” the uses can insert their wireless monitor for charging and also upload their monitoring data on their connected mobile device to up to 5 people. These can be family caregivers like a parent or adult child as well as health care professionals caring for the patient. The follower app allows those care givers to see what is going on with their loved one in real time via the direct connection with the continuous blood glucose monitor.
