Abstract

Innovations in communications technology, computer systems and software, and medical as well as nonmedical devices occur rapidly, and it may be difficult for clinical practice modifications to keep pace. The goals of this review are to discuss emerging technologies in emergency medical services (EMS) and to highlight studies and resources supported by the EMS for Children program. We will describe applications of new technology in the areas of EMS processes, telemedicine, patient monitoring and treatment, disaster management, and provider education.
