Traduction en anglais : Preclinical emergency medicine systems: international comparisons.
The tasks of preclinical emergency medicine systems (PEMS) are to stabilize and maintain the vital functions and to guarantee qualified transport to the hospital.
Worldwide, different structures exist as a result of historical developments.
Legal regulations for PEMS have been introduced in most of the industrialized countries since 1960.
More and more aspects have been subject to detailed regulations.
PEMS are provided either by stateowned or by state-controlled (private) organisations.
In most of the « underdeveloped » countries legal regulations do not exist and PEMS is often provided by social workers, by the army or by volunteers.
In most countries, PEMS are financed by the state with a charge on the patient.
