Points & Pearls Excerpt

  • Only 5.5% of community emergency departments have the recommended pediatric medical supplies to stabilize and treat patients in need of subspecialty or critical care.
  • The speed capability of rotor-wing aircraft combined with the ability to avoid traffic allows for travel times that are one-fourth that of ground transportation modalities.
