Protocol Changes (1)

Two Protocol Changes will go into effect today (2 April 2018) at 1000. Both are administrative changes which by policy do not require approval by the Medical Advisory Committee.

Change 1 is located in the Administrative Policies: STEMI Field Triage.

  • The "Acute Coronary Syndrome" protocol referenced in the Administrative Policies: STEMI Field Triage is incorrectly titled.  The correct title is "Medical: Chest Pain-Cardiac Suspected."

Change 2 is to the "Medical: Chest Pain- Cardiac Suspected" Protocol.

  • The correct oxygen saturation value is <94%. This corrects a typographical error and does not represent a change in  clinical guidance.

PEMS website links to protocol files have been updated.

Agencies with printed protocols be sure to download, print, and insert change pages.

All users of the protocol app will update automatically when connected to Wi-Fi.
