Entry Description
INDIANA TEAM WINS CPR COMPETITION AT WORLD EXPO

Indiana Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel won first place in the CPR competition at the EMS World Expo in Las Vegas. The competition took place on Wednesday, Sept. 11 and involved 30 teams from around the world.

The Indiana team included Carl Wireman of Parkview Huntington EMS in Huntington, Indiana along with Keith Robbins, Cody Manges and Tyler Huffer each of Multi-Township EMS in Kosciusko and Marshall counties.

The competition tested the team on time and airway management and the rate of their chest compressions. Each team performed one at a time and could obtain a maximum score of 100 percent. After the first round, the top 10 teams were offered a second chance to try and improve their scores. During the second opportunity, the Indiana team improved its score by 6 percentage points, ultimately winning first place.

The EMS World Expo is an annual event that brings together EMS professionals from around the world. The goal is to offer innovative and dynamic learning, and to advance EMS education.
