Emergency Medical Services in Crisis

When your life is on the line, you call emergency medical services and hope for proficient, skilled care on the spot. In 80% of emergencies, patients rely on the care of basic life support practitioners, who have generally qualified through 4-week short courses, which government says are not up to the professional standards required. But new regulations will signal the end of short courses and EMS practitioners will be forced to complete formal degrees of up to 4 years. This has sparked fears that it will result in an  even bigger shortage of advanced life-support practitioners. Carte Blanche investigates.

Airport Heists Follow Up

Three weeks ago Carte Blanche revealed how alleged spotters work within the airport to identify travellers with high value goods before following them and robbing them on their way home. Since then there have been three so-called follow-home robberies, one hijacking and one truck heist linked to the OR Tambo airport. Police minister Fikile Mbalula has assured the public that security measures have been sharpened and tactical teams put in place. But when will we see actual results?

Spinach Leaf Hearts

Scientists in the US have found a remarkable way to use spinach leaves to build working human heart muscle, which could provide a solution to repair damaged organs. By stripping the cells of the leafy greens, the clear cellulose structure which remains, has the potential to mimic human tissue - perfect for a new heart. Carte Blanche explores this extraordinary research.
