...As in 20-30 years from now? I was having this discussion with my partner the other day, and we were going back and forth on the issue whether EMS will be expanded with new procedures/meds/protocalls (like possibly ultrasound?), and the idea that EMS could be reduced to mere transport and critical life support. I have read that current data seems to undermine the idea that pre-hospital care makes a statistical difference in patient mortality rates-- so I could see EMS getting pulled back a little, but then again perhaps new technology could change all that. What do you guys think?
