Join us as we discuss:

Helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) can improve survival in some injured patients. However, patients transported by HEMS with non-time-sensitive injuries can lead to costly overtriage. The authors of this study evaluated the HEMS services in North Carolina, assessed system performance, and analyzed opportunities for reduction.
 
Please join members of the Prehospital Care Research Forum and others in discussing this topic.
