In this presentation, originally delivered during Mayo Medical Laboratories’ TransFuse conference, Scott Zietlow, M.D., uses a case presentation to illustrate how prehospital care saved a patient’s life and how care provided outside hospitals impacts lives on a daily basis.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Define prehospital care.
  • Discuss the history of medical transport.
  • Summarize the Mayo Clinic medical transport service.
