NPSTC’s EMS Working Group Publishes Sensor Based Medical Alarms: What Your EMS Agency Should Know!
EMS Star of Life Logo
There are a variety of medical and telemetry sensors being used outside of hospitals to monitor a patient's health status.  While some devices must be taken to a physician's office to access the stored data, newer type devices are connected to the Internet and can transmit patient data daily or in real time.  What should your EMS agency do?  Coordinate with your PSAP, law enforcement, fire departments, and other agencies to develop a comprehensive response policy for each of the various call types coming from third party monitoring centers.  Add sensor based alerts to your agency's Quality Assurance monitoring program to ensure that these events are captured and receive adequate review.  Read report here.
