These protocols represent a consensus of medical opinion using the best available evidence for dealing with most situations paramedics encounter. They are designed to be supported by appropriate education and training found through other sources. Members using these manuals must ensure they successfully complete the appropriate training, and possess the necessary knowledge and skills to be competent before performing any procedure in this manual.
Before using any manual, members should read the introduction and user guide sections and become familiar with how your particular manual is to be used.
NOTE: Any material that is printed is considered an uncontrolled copy. Ensure that you are always working from the most current version of each protocol manual by checking back here often.
