Interesting story highlighting telemedicine from the Post!!

If anything defines the growing health gap between rural and urban America, it’s the rise of emergency telemedicine in the poorest, sickest, and most remote parts of the country, where the choice is increasingly to have a doctor on screen or no doctor at all. These physicians, often hundreds of mi...

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Boston EMS community following the vicious attack on two Emergency Medical Technicians now recovering from injuries sustained in a violent assault by a patient in their care. “In responding to an emergency call, EMS personnel should be focused on quality patient care, not the need for self-defense,” said Kyle Thornton, President of the National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO). Published studies observe that EMS personnel have a rate of occupational fatality comparable to firefighters and police, a rate of non-fatal injuries that is higher than the rates for police and firefighters, and incidence much higher than the national average for all workers. Thornton continues, “NASEMSO supports local, state, and federal efforts to keep EMS responders safe from harm, including support for reporting violent encounters to law enforcement and statutes that hold perpetrators of violent crimes accountable for their actions.” Recent research shows that there are, on average, over 400 serious violence-related injuries among EMS personnel every year in the U.S.

Could you enlighten me in why there is a petition circulating against this organization to try and keep intubation as a prehospital skill? I've never heard of this group and wonder why you're being petitioned against.
