Smartphone App Facilitates Use of Air Medical Service

From Northwest MedStar.

From JEMS:

The app interface allows for texting between air crews and responders in the field. Since many tablets and smartphones have cameras, the app also lets users send photos of EKG tests, injuries and other circumstances.

Eveline Bisson, director of Northwest MedStar, said in a news release that the app’s key value is reducing the need for emergency responders to focus on landing zone location and lets them spend more time on patient care.

The app also allows first responders to download detailed guides to setting up a landing zone and how to prepare a patient for transport.
