Description

Contemporary prehospital personnel are facing the major issues of infectious disease exposure, malpractice, attrition, and career opportunities in their challenging and demanding profession. Successful prehospital emergency medicine is contingent not only on the effective and efficient functioning of the entire EMS system, but most important, on the sound performance of each prehospital care provider.
