It takes a system to save a life

The theme of EMS2017 is: It takes a system to save a life. Though it may be individuals who perform CPR, attach and use the defibrillator or even administer medications and ad­vanced medical interventions, it is a system that makes it all possible. Cooperation between the dispatch center, the ambulance services and the emergency departments is essential in saving life. Lives are saved not just by highly trained EMS professionals, but by highly efficient EMS systems.

Through dialogue, innovation, involvement and a creative approach, EMS2017 will provide the latest knowledge, showcase the newest equipment and demonstrate best practices in the area of emergency care – from the citizen’s emergency call, to pre-hospital care and all the way to definitive care including the emergency departments.
