Every year,àœJEMS showcases recently released products designed to help EMS providers do their jobs more efficiently and safely. This March, theàœJEMS 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.
Highways can be a dangerous place foràœEMS crews and other public safety personnel. The LED-illuminated Turboflare Alert from TurboflareàœUSA now has a feature that will trigger an audible alarm at the accident scene if someone drives over a deployed Turboflare and is heading toward the rescue team.
