When do you deviate from your EMS protocols? When is it right  to do so? Many systems leave it vague on how to handle this aspect of EMS and most training and education doesn't cover why, when or where we should be considering it.

Words like "may, consider, withhold" make it very hit or miss. Add to that the various interpretations by state, regional or even in house QA/QI and you can have providers treating patients in the interest of self preservation and not the best interest of the patient.

Join us for this episode as we try to keep the discussion on this passionate and opinionated topic on track.
