  2. For goodness sakes JP! Do you not know how to search for neonatal statistics? The stats quotes at 50% came from JEMS. It just took a few quick checks to see where he pulled that number from on the internet. I never made any direct statement as to where he got that information because JEMS was not part of the trial. Just look at the reputable neonatal websites and you can read all about neonatal stats. I also take NRP which is full of fascinating stats in the reference section that makes taking the course over and over again worthwhile as they are being updated as medicine evolves.

(article only mentions one Paramedic being honored by EVAC for a good job) Must consider both the mother and the baby to be patients and SICK. No fetal monitor mentioned for a 60+ mile transport. Only a silver swaddler with a known possibility of a 25 week preemie being born. 8 minutes of CPR
