Research that Sets the Standard for Care

Beyond training today’s lifesaving paramedics, the Medic One Foundation funds the research and development of tomorrow’s lifesaving ideas to improve patient care and prevent sudden cardiac arrest. Research is the key to ensuring that the best possible patient care is provided in the pre-hospital setting.

Please support the Research Fund and help turn promising ideas into lifesaving treatments.
