One of the most time consuming parts of an EMS Medical Director is the development and updating of training material and medical protocols.  In an effort to reduce workload and provide comparisons, members of the ACEP EMS Section have volunteered to share their protocols on this site.

This material has been developed by medical directors for their own agencies in an effort to provide best practice given their environment, resources and training.  (Please see caution note below).  If you find this material is clinically appropriate for your agency and decide to base a training program or protocol on information garnered from here, please give credit to the originator.


The nature of medical care is that it is constantly evolving because of ongoing research and clinical experience and is often subject to interpretation.  The reader is advised that the authors of this information and ACEP, its members, leaders or staff cannot be responsible for the currency of the information or for any errors, omissions or the application of this information, or for any consequences arising therefrom.  ACEP only provides a web spot for viewing this content and has not reviewed or edited this information in any way and is not responsible for the content.
