JEMS Receives National Publishing Award


 
 

Elsevier | | Thursday, May 5, 2011


SAN DIEGO -- The Journal of Emergency Medical Services (JEMS), which is published by Elsevier Public Safety, received top recognition from the Western Publications Association (WPA) on April 29 at the WPA’s annual awards banquet in Los Angeles; JEMS won the award for best supplement/trade & consumer. The WPA’s Maggie Awards honor the best in consumer and trade print and electronic publishing in the western United States. Each year the WPA receives thousands of entries from popular trade and consumer magazines, such as PC World, Mother Jones, and Yoga Journal.

JEMS, the premier educational resource in the emergency medical services industry, received the Maggie for best supplement/trade & consumer for “The Silent Killer.” The supplement, sponsored by Masimo Corporation and ZOLL Medical Corporation and published in the October 2010 issue of JEMS, may be downloaded at http://www.jems.com/special/masimo-october-2010.

“This editorial award is especially important because it focused on the detection of carbon monoxide (CO) in patients and emergency responders alike, something which has not been available to prehospital emergency medicine professionals in the past,” said JEMS Editor-in-Chief A.J. Heightman. “The technology in this supplement showed how prehospital providers can detect dangerously high CO levels in the blood within an instant, something that can take up to an hour when assessed by traditional hospital lab tests. The coverage also noted the health ramifications for firefighters from exposure to high levels of CO and the importance of quick detection and treatment.”

The WPA also bestowed honor on JEMS and its sister public safety products with six nominations in other categories:

Best Web E-Newsletter/Trade & Consumer
Firefighter Nation NOW
JEMS eNewsletter

JEMS.com
LawOfficer.com
