The EMS Revolution

Presented in partnership with JEMS

In 1776, scrappy American colonists challenged the British government and the world was never the same. In 2018, two new research studies are challenging EMS operations and it’s likely that once again, the world will never be the same.

Developed in partnership with JEMS and led by Drs. Brent Myers, Scott Bourn and Remle Crowe, “The EMS Revolution” recorded webinar examines the recent uprisings in stroke care and spinal motion restriction. To watch the webinar, complete the form on this page.
