Abstract

Over the past 20 years, emergency medical services (EMS) have proliferated across the United States at a rapid rate. Because of the relative youth of prehospital medical care, there are many unanswered questions regarding interventions and therapeutics. Although prehospital interventions, such as airway management and defibrillation, are beneficial, most interventions performed in the prehospital setting have little data to indicate that patient outcome is positively influenced. Fortunately, over the past few years, the body of rigorous literature devoted to prehospital care has been expanding. In this section we present pearls, pitfalls, and recent innovations in EMS and prehospital care.
