Welcome Paramedics and EMTs to the #1 Resource for EMS

 - Monday, July 06, 2015

 From the Editor

Because EMS happens 24/7 it is critical to study sleep health and fatigue in EMS. Recently a Texas medic at the end of a 48-hour shift fell asleep at the wheel and crashed the ambulance. Concern for patient and provider safety was the impetus for a S.C. EMS agency to change from 24-hour to 12-hour shifts. Indianapolis EMS has also changed all of its units to 12-hour shifts. Follow @EMS1 on Twitter and share your thoughts on sleep health in EMS.
