The quid pro quo for developing and deploying emergency responder on-scene HIT systems is the improvement of safety, care, and outcomes for the nearly 250,000 crash victims (6,000,000 worldwide) who sustain life-threatening injuries annually as a result of motor vehicle crashes.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
