MARVLIS User Group

For the last three years, BCS has held an annual gathering for MARVLIS Users in conjunction with the Pinnacle EMS conference. The first meeting was held in Colorado Springs during 2012 and was attended by representatives from several agencies employing the technology. Each of them was given the opportunity to share their experiences with the software suite and provide suggestions for improvements to the software as it continues to evolve. The next year’s meeting was held at the Omni Plantation on Amelia Island in Florida. Since that venue was much closer to the BCS offices in South Carolina, it allowed for more participation from the MARVLIS development and support staff. They were able to report on the progress from previous input in addition to having more extensive interaction with clients and others interested in implementing MARVLIS. The most recent event was held this past summer in Phoenix.  This gathering changed the format somewhat from a traditional meeting to a more informal sharing over dinner and drinks. Regardless of how the communication happens, BCS is keenly interested in the ideas and experiences users have with MARVLIS as a tool to improve their EMS performance. Visit this page again for plans on our next event to be held in the summer of 2015.

BCS believes strongly in the notion that EMS performance is not based solely on any software product, but understands the vital role MARVLIS plays in the overall dynamics that do measure and improve performance. It is that belief in the value of sharing thoughts and ideas around the largely set of topics that contribute to success that lead to their support of this website and the entire High Performance EMS community building efforts.  The success of BCS is directly tied to the success of each and every customer. By making the whole community stronger and better informed, we all succeed.

Did You Watch ‘Nightwatch’ Last Night?
Some of the EMTs on the show also have a nursing degree. Dan Flynn also works as an ER nurse, I believe.

Good article. I'm stunned with the comments about "if a study exists showing backboards help" comment. You'll never get an IRB board to approve such a study, but that's where the methods of immobilizing the joint above and below the fracture come in. The comment about disregarding this post because the author is not like…

IF YOU HAVE EVER HAD THE MISFORTUNE OF HAVING A REAL MCI, BACKBOARDS ARE STILL AN ASSET. REMEMBER YOU MIGHT HAVE 15 AGENCIES WITH DIFFERENT LEVELS OF TRAINING, DIFFERENT FUNDING WHERE THEY MIGHT HAVE NEWER EQUIPMENT BUT NOT ENOUGH TO WORK AN INCIDENT. FIREFIGHTERS WILL BE ASSISTING, MOSTLY WITHOUT EXTRA TRAINING. A DOUBLE BUS CRASH…

At a swimming pool, the use of a backboard is the most efficient and safest way for the lifeguards to remove an unconscious/submerged (non-spinal) victim from deep water. After the person has been rescued and brought to the side of the pool, the assisting lifeguard holds the victim in place while the primary lifeguard puts…

Don't throw away the back board yet! You can have all the discussions regarding it's validity but I am in favor of keeping it on board the rig. Scoop stretchers and Reeves are good and I have used them in place of the board, but I find the sturdy back board as a good way…
