Breaking the Cycle: Understanding 72-hour Repeat EMS Encounters

Prehospital Care Research Forum Journal Club by Prehospital Care Research Forum

Episode notes

Patients with repeat EMS encounters within 72 hours represent an important patient population to better understand risks and resource utilization, yet limited data exist describing characteristics of these encounters. Come join us on the next PCRF Journal Club as we review a study that describes patients who had more than one EMS encounter within 72 hours and compares them to patients who did not have subsequent EMS encounters within a single, large urban EMS agency.
