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.

Keep Meds at an Even Temp

Maintaining the temperature of ALS medications has long been an issue for EMS. Unless your service area has year-round ambient temperatures between 60_ F and 80_ F, you likely have wondered about the effects of heat and cold on the efficacy of your medications. The solid-state, low-power (5 amp, 60-watt max.) PharmGuard method of maintaining temperature control is a breakthrough. When installed in a well-insulated cabinet, the PharmGuard, by Biomedical Equipment & Engineering Services Co., automatically provides cooling at temperatures above 75_ F and heating below 59_ F, without the bulk, noise or power requirements of a compressor. In fact, the only moving part is a small fan to circulate the air around the cabinet.
