Headlamps are one of those items that are a must on any outdoor scene. Many of the headlamps available on the market tend to have a very narrow beam of light. Personally, I think a wider beam of crisp bright light makes a headlamp far more EMS friendly. Having a wider beam of light makes the peripherals of a scene far more visible and therefore will help you to better identify dangers and potential dangers. Something else that I also think is important is being able to adjust the light source to dim light. I cannot imagine it being very comfortable having a really bright light shining in your patient’s face during an assessment.
