Looking for EMS Documentaries.

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am looking for documentaries about EMS. I've done many internet searches but have found virtually nothing. "Level Zero" was really the only one I managed to stumble upon, but it was short and not very in-depth.

If anyone has information about or links to EMS documentaries, I would appreciate it. :)

Pretty much nothing out there except shows that glorify fire and show little true EMS that and comedies.

There used to be a show on I think discovery health seems like it was called Paramedics, yeah that's it. http://www.tv.com/paramedics/show/64088/summary.html

And don't forget this very fire slanted history of ems that does seem to leave out some details.

That wasn't a documentary, that was early-on reality TV. I still think HIPAA killed it too.

You're better off with a book. There are a lot of books that detail the trials of EMS. Amazon, eBay, Borders..

The Paramedics, Omaha Orange, The Ambulance...

Or documents.. that started it all (FREE)

Accidental Death and Disability; The Neglected Disease of Modern Society

If you can get your hands on Farrington's Death in a Ditch, that's a good read too.

If you care about specific cities one of the medics I work with wrote a book on the history of edmonton alberta. His name is mike plumbtree and the book is PDF for 5$ or hardcover for 200$.. It's called "paramedics and ambulances" . Also I found a movie on snagfilms called "tell me and ill forget" about Ems in South Africa. the book "a paramedic story" written by Kelly Greyson (spelling) about his Ems life. It's really good too

Tell me and I will forget is a good one, I've recently stumbled upon one about a hospital in Southern Johannesburg (serving a population of 2-3 million!) called Saving Soweto.

There is another one about London's HEMS.

The best ones are porbably Australian

A few military ones

There are a few French, German, Swiss and Austrian ones but you probably won't find them with subtitles. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFpnYth9mA0
