Episode 32: One Medic, or Two?

The gang looks at the idea of ALS crew configuration. Is a two paramedic system better for patient care? Is one medic with an EMT better? Does more equate to better, and how do we measure it?

We look at the benefits and downsides, look at some of the (sparse) evidence, and talk about some of the things that may help us figure it out!
