Acadian’s Medical Director Charles Burnell, MD, along with his team of physicians and field training officers, attended the 14th annual EMS State of the Sciences Conference in Dallas, Texas.

Our delegated role is to maintain superior medical service and to make sure that our patient outcomes, survivals, and the care that the patients receive is the best that we can deliver.

Acadian’s Medical Director Charles Burnell, MD, along with his team of physicians and field training officers, attended the 14th annual EMS State of the Sciences Conference in Dallas, Texas.

The media has dubbed this conference “A Gathering of Eagles” and the “Eagles Conference,” since the conference represents some of the biggest cities in the world, and from an eagle’s point of view these major cities look like bright points of light.

This meeting of the minds has become one of the most important EMS conferences with the largest EMS organizations from around the globe represented. The two-day affair provides attendees with the most up-to-date advancements in EMS research, cutting edge patient care techniques, managerial methods and lessons learned since the last conference.

This year’s conference covered dozens of topics from preventing pre-hospital medical errors to cardiovascular emergencies in pregnancy. However, the most notable were the medication shortages in the United States, bystander CPR and the importance of community CPR education, and “pit crew” approaches to delivering care in an emergency.

The Eagles Conference is essential to Acadian’s growth. It is where many innovative ideas for the company begin. It not only provides Acadian staff with the knowledge of where EMS is heading, but also allows them access to the “Eagles,” the committee made up of some of the most highly respected and knowledgeable people in the EMS field.

“Our delegated role is to maintain superior medical service and to make sure that our patient outcomes, survivals, and the care that the patients receive is the best that we can deliver,” says Burnell.

After the Eagles Conference, Dr. Burnell and his staff have a strategic meeting to discuss what would be the most beneficial techniques for Acadian to adopt. “The Eagles Conference gives us a lot of insight as far as where the research and literature is heading, but we have to ultimately make the decision about what we are going to do moving forward,” says Burnell.

Since 1971, Acadian has been committed to providing the highest level of emergency medical care and transportation possible. In the past decade they have expanded to include a diverse suite of services designed to offer the very best support and education in health, safety, and transportation. Acadian’s six divisions are Acadian Ambulance Service, Acadian Monitoring Services, Air Med, Executive Aircraft Charter Service, National EMS Academy and Safety Management Systems.
