Changing the Practice of Emergency Medicine
From crude beginnings in field hospitals across the world, emergency responders and surgeons have partnered to create an array of emergency response equipment that has stood the test of time. With every new generation tools are refined and re-imagined in an attempt to provide better and faster care to those in need.
It would be impossible to deliver high quality responsive care without the numerous tools of the trade that have developed over the years. Every aspect of Emergency Medical Services including communication, transport, and treatment methods have grown and developed in ways that would make our founding fathers and mothers proud. From defibrillators to stethoscopes, resuscitators to radios, these tools mark significant changes to the field.
It is the tools of the trade that not only tell how EMS has grown over time but how society has embraced emergency professionals and have come to depend on their care and expertise during their times of need.
