The exponential growth of the human population requires an increasingly efficient EMS infrastructure and service. The purpose of this project was to examine and analyze various aspects of the EMS communication system within the United States of America, and identify areas that could be improved. Current operation and maintenance of EMS communication system were investigated, including input and retrieval of information, data storage, infrastructure and modes of communication. Areas for improvement were recognized, and feasible solutions that could improve time response, were researched. A medical database was developed to store and retrieve patient information and delay differential equations were formulated to reduce system dynamic delays.
