Rescue Essentials and JEMS (Journal of Emergency Medical Services) are proud to announce the selection of the Public Access Bleeding Control Kit as a Hot Product from the JEMS EMS Today Conference & Exposition, which was held February 23–25 in Salt Lake City.
The Rescue Essentials Public Access Bleeding Control Kit was selected after a team of eight judges consisting of emergency medical services (EMS) product specialists, physicians, educators, managers and paramedics reviewed a host of product contenders reviewed products designed to not only improve the ability to deliver optimal emergency medical care to sick and injured patients, but also allow EMS agencies to do it safely, more efficiently and with enhanced comfort for the patient.
Products were rated on a 1–10 scale in four distinct categories: 1) Originality; 2) Functionality; 3) Ease of use; and 4) Need in the EMS setting. The Rescue Essentials Public Access Bleeding Control Kit was one of only 30 products selected as Hot Products after the EMS Today Hot Products review team reviewed and rated 58 products submitted by 52 companies.
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.”
The selection of the final 30 Hot Products appears in the June issue of JEMS and can also be viewed at www.jems.com/2017-hot-products.
