Paramedics Dave Buddemeyer and Todd Pritchard help a patient, circa 1988-89.
When Todd Pritchard first became a paramedic several decades ago, ambulance crews frequently used medical anti-shock trousers, a type of balloon pant inflated on patients on the way to the hospital to keep them from going into shock from loss of blood. Since Pritchard joined Medical Rescue Team South Authority (MRTSA) as a volunteer in 1985 through his position now as MRTSA chief, he has seen many such reversals. And as the authority celebrates its 40th year of operation, he can foresee what lies ahead for patients, medics and insurance companies. "I think the way we deliver emergency medical services is going to be completely different down the road," he says. "I'd like to think we're taking care of the most important commodity," Pritchard says. When Pritchard was first a medic in the 1980s, ambulance crews didn't carry much medication-a little nitroglycerin for chest pain, but not much else. In the near future, Pritchard sees the same sort of coordination for patients with an aggressive life-threatening condition called sepsis. "I think EMS is a perfect system to create care in the home," Pritchard says. Pediatric specialty training is on the rise, all for $7.50 per capita in tax cost."We are delivering a very high quality, necessary service at a tremendous value," Pritchard says.

"Two minutes doesn't sound like a big deal, but try holding your breath for two minutes," says MRTSA Chief Todd Pritchard.
Pritchard says medics are used to stabilizing patients and transferring them. But the changing nature of health care makes him think the EMS may be able to help steer patients in the right direction, even if patients refuse help at first. "Maybe we do need to look at offering some sort of brochure as to where they could seek additional assistance," he says. "If you save just one person…"

"About 20 percent of our calls don't result in a transport," said Todd Pritchard, operations director for the Mt. Lebanon-based Medical Rescue Team South.
Ambulance teams might provide care during these calls, such as injecting insulin into an unresponsive diabetic. "That's a truly life-threatening emergency," Pritchard said.
