Every year,JEMS showcases recently released products designed to help EMS providers do their jobs more efficiently and safely. This March, theJEMS product review team spent two days combing the exhibit hall at the 24th annual EMS Today Conference & Exposition in Baltimore. The team of seasoned field providers, educators and EMS procurement specialists met with 227 exhibitors, reviewing products recently introduced to our industry and asking about product design, rationale, function and practical application for prehospital medicine. These are the team's picks for the hottest new products unveiled within the previous six months.
