LOS ANGELES, CA – June 28, 2024 – LifeLine EMS, a leading provider of emergency medical services in Southern California, is proud to announce the implementation of the Handtevy System, developed by Handtevy – Pediatric Emergency Standards, Inc. This strategic move is aimed at improving patient outcomes, reducing medication errors, and boosting the confidence of EMS personnel when treating pediatric patients. LifeLine EMS is the first agency in Los Angeles County to adopt the Handtevy System, joining many other agencies across the state and thousands more across the nation.

The adoption of the Handtevy System at LifeLine EMS coincides with Safety Month, underlining the organization’s commitment to safety and clinical excellence. LifeLine EMS is renowned for its dedication to innovation, quality care, and continuous improvement. The integration of Handtevy’s award-winning mobile application and training program aligns perfectly with these values, providing the tools and resources needed to streamline clinical processes and enhance patient care.

Empowering EMS Teams

The Handtevy System is designed to deliver precise, real-time information for medication dosing, equipment sizing, and protocol adherence. This ensures that EMS teams can provide the highest quality of emergency care to both pediatric and adult patients with increased accuracy and efficiency. The system’s features include:

Accurate Medication Dosing: Handtevy’s mobile app provides EMS clinicians with quick access to accurate medication dosages, reducing the risk of errors that can occur during high-stress situations.

CPR Assist and Checklists: The app includes tools to guide EMS teams through CPR procedures and critical checklists, ensuring all necessary steps are followed during an emergency.

Comprehensive Training: Handtevy’s educational programs are designed to improve the skills and confidence of EMS personnel, enabling them to handle pediatric emergencies with greater assurance and effectiveness.

Improving Outcomes and Reducing Errors

Studies have shown that the Handtevy System significantly improves medication dosing accuracy and overall patient outcomes. A study conducted by Denver Health revealed that after implementing Handtevy, correct medication dosing increased to 89.4%, compared to 51.1% with traditional methods. Additionally, research from Polk County Fire Rescue demonstrated a significant improvement in neurologically-intact survival rates for pediatric out-of-hospital cardiac arrest cases, increasing from 0% to 23% following the implementation of enhanced on-scene management strategies that included the use of Handtevy. This substantial improvement highlights the system’s potential to save lives and enhance the quality of care provided by EMS teams.
