EMS - A Life of Acronyms

EMS Professionals,

The EMS industry has a knack for using acronyms! We love to have an alphabet soup set of letters represent something important.  The problem with that is, not all of the acronyms are common within the medical industry. MLS is not a standardized acronym for Multi-Level Stretcher although that comes together kind of nicely. ePCRs, purposefully only permit standardized medical acronyms which, while it can be frustrating to the MAF, multiple acronym fan, creates a much better medical document that can be used by other healthcare providers along the healthcare continuum as they treat the patient.
