Paramedics at Lakeview EMS, a St. Croix Valley leader in pre-hospital standards, are using a new technology called the Handtevy System to offer the highest level of care for their pediatric patients.
This technology is available on tablets or mobile devices, used by the EMS crews.
“Providing medication to children can be complicated,” stated Matt Milder, Lakeview Hospital EMS Supervisor. “Unlike adults, children do not have an easy set of standards for providing medication. With this new technology, we are able to provide medication to any child no matter their height or weight in a quicker and more efficient manner.”
Prior to this technology, Lakeview EMS relied on lengthy calculations which consumed precious time.
