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.

In this episode of the EMS Garage Podcast hosts Chris Montera and Anne Robinson Montera are joined by EMS educator and researcher Baxter Larmon from UCLA. Also on the panel is Carissa Caramanis O’Brien health care social media expert and consultant, as well as director of social media for Aetna. Baxter talks about the impetus to improve healthcare for the people of California with an initiative to add a community paramedic or mobile integrated healthcare program to that state’s EMS laws.

Carissa also brings up how using social media channels to listen to voices for change in healthcare. While channels like Twitter are limited to pushing out 140 characters in a post, there are many more words that can come back in response to a post and these various voices and points of view provide the information to give direction to change.

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.
