I don't  think anyone is suggesting clearing EMTs to perform anything 
difficult like  thorascotomies or splenectomies, but putting in tubes is something 
necessary  and a thing I believe more EMTs should be taught sufficiently so they 
can  safely perform it in the field.

I know of NO data to support your suggestion.  Furthermore, the  AIR EMS is 
not better trained than most ground EMS units.
