I am writing a report where I have been asked to list the innovations of a paramedic.
My thinking is that smart devices such as the iPhone, iPad, or android based devices are great examples of innovations that improve the ability of paramedics to do their job.
Instant Internet, communications, and a host of applications that give instant access to a wealth of knowledge, experience, and information.
In some parts of the world, applications are being developed where a patient’s medical records can be pushed out to a tablet device en route to the emergency.
This is particularly useful where the paramedic crew may not trust the medical history that the patient is giving them or where the patient is unable to recall or relay their medical information.
