The purpose of the study is to develop proposals to improve the organization of the work of the ЕMС in the conditions of the spread of a new coronavirus infection.
Materials and methods. To study the organization of work, information was copied from call cards (n=134 before the
pandemic, during the pandemic n=2058), the study of the frequency and validity of ЕMС calls was carried out using a developed questionnaire.
