Medical News Now: Doctors may need to use EMR devices for ECTS
Medical News Online (MNN) has the latest on an emergency scenario being faced by emergency doctors in California.
As the situation unfolds in the state, we have seen an increase in patients seeking ECT.
We have also seen an uptick in the number of ECTs and related equipment orders for doctors.
As a result, ECT patients are increasingly seeking medical equipment that can be used to treat their ECT symptoms.
Some medical devices are being used in lieu of EMTs.
What this means for emergency doctors, EMT-equipped vehicles and other devices is that they may need a different set of equipment to perform ECT in the future.
The Associated Press is following up with the California Department of Public Health and Human Services on the matter.
