EMSWORLD.com | DECEMBER 2018 79 NORTH AMERICAN RESCUE LLC S.P.E.A.R. (Simplified Pneumothorax Emergency Air Release) The North American Rescue S.P.E.A.R. was designed to improve insertion safety with controlled entry in the management of tension pneumothorax. The needle tip was specifically designed to improve penetration through varied tissue thicknesses while allowing the operator to feel entry into the thoracic cavity. A quarter-turn lock between the needle and catheter prevents documented inser- tion failure, while a soft-tipped catheter decreases visceral pleura injury. JUDGES' FEEDBACK: "Great device. Needed, simple, aordable. Will require some training and protocol changes to allow for use."

Scenarios are coupled with nine life-size "Mani-Kids" (newborns to teens) to guide the develop- ment of crucial muscle memory skills. JUDGES' FEEDBACK: "I really loved this. Simple, portable, eective. Allows for useful training in many dierent set- tings with minimal setup and planning."

Operates at 10 liters per minute and de- livers approximately 30% FiO2. Options of 5, 7.5, and 10 cm of PEEP are independent of flow, so providers never have to worry about adjusting flow to maintain PEEP levels. On a full D-cylinder tank, the GO-PAP will run for approximately 40 minutes. JUDGES' FEEDBACK: "Excellent device. Straightfor- ward, portable, simple. This would be a great addition to many ambulances." Visit EMSWorld.com/product/221258/go-paptm
