Have we left someone behind today in our efforts at MVCs? Vehicle Extrication today needs to be strategic, weakening the vehicle structure and release crash energy absorbed by the vehicle structure. The importance is large space first time out so to think outside of the box maximize your space making efforts. Patient centered care needs to return to the level of it once was importance wise. Hands on care in the environment from the EMS providers should be the norm not the exception. New devices to assist in disentanglement need to be brought forward and used. Coordinated Vehicle Rescue should be Best Practices across the country if not the globe. Intertwined EMS & Rescue Services functions that occur simultaneously is the Best Practice. This is the basis we should ALL should strive for today and work from once we are there.
