Albany -- Paramedics, EMT's, and Trauma nurses from across Georgia are in Albany for two days to learn the latest in Emergency Medical Services.

 The 22nd annual TIME Conference, Trends in Medical Emergencies, is going on at Darton College. More than 200 Emergency room nurses and Paramedics gather to learn the latest medical developments.

Dougherty County EMS Supervisor Charles Eubanks said "Medicine changes so fast that you almost have to go to school constantly in order to try to remain abreast of all the current changes."

The Paramedics and nurses also get to see new technology products, like the Auto Pulse. This device combines a defibrillator to shock a heart attack patient, while also giving CPR.
