June 4, 2018 - San Diego CA — EMS (Journal of Emergency Medical Services) is proud to announce the selection of this year’s Hot Products from the JEMS/EMS Today Conference & Exposition, which was held February 21–23 in Charlotte, N.C.
A team of twelve judges consisting of emergency medical services (EMS) product specialists, physicians, educators, managers and paramedics reviewed a host of product contenders—from vehicles to equipment to mobile apps to training aids—all released within the 12 months immediately preceding the EMS Today Conference & Exposition.
Rescue Essentials is thrilled to have won a Hot Product Award for their QuickLitter Lite emergency transport stretcher. Small and compact enough to fit into cargo pockets, the Quiklitter Lite is designed for active shooter and TEMS response. “As awareness on the importance of public access to bleeding control increases, attention should also be paid to casualty extraction” said Rescue Essentials President Phil Carey. “Getting the injured quickly and safely out of the danger zone and to a treatment area is critical to improving the medical outcomes.”
JEMS Editor-in-Chief and EMS Today Conference Chairman A.J. Heightman said, “There were an amazing group of Hot Product submissions for our reviewers to review and rate this year. All of the products reviewed were extremely innovative and well designed for the EMS industry, showing that our industry is keeping pace with the current science of emergency medicine and developing or upgrading their products to stay out in front of the science and technology curve.”
This year, the EMS Today Hot Products review team reviewed and rated 64 products submitted by 52 companies. The selection of the final 30 Hot Products appears in the June issue of JEMS.
