(Editor's Note: The system deployed by SafetyPAD at the Boston Marathon was not a Mass Casualty device.)
Boston EMS is deploying a new, off-the-shelf, lightweight mobile device to enhance their existing ePCR platform in time at the Boston Marathon on April 15.
The application, from SafetyPAD, gives EMS personnel the ability to record patient information quickly. It can be carried into crowds and used to assess patients upon arrival, document in real-time, transmit data to transport units before they arrive, and other features.
Boston EMS will utilize the new Android-based program for bike and gator teams along race route.
