ElmwoodRescueSquad 0417

The Elmwood Medical technicians (EMTs) went through the training and are now able to insert an advanced airway call a King Airway! 

These Airways provide us with the ability to secure a patient's airway better than what is taught in the EMT class.

These Airways help us supply better oxygen to our patients resulting in better outcomes.

Another way of providing the best care to our communities and our patients!

Thank you to the Elmwood Volunteer Rescue Squad!!
