Description:
This 2012 Edition offers current best practice guidance. The guidelines have expanded in number and scope – with 73 CPGs in total for Advanced Paramedics, covering such topics as Post Resuscitation Care for Paediatric patients and End of Life – DNR for the first time. The CPGs continue to recognise the various levels of Practitioner (Emergency Medical Technician, Paramedic and Advanced Paramedic) and Responder (Cardiac First Response, Occupational First Aid and Emergency First Response) who offer care. The CPGs cover these six levels, reflecting the fact that care is integrated. Each level of more advanced care is built on the care level preceding it, whether or not provided by the same person. For ease of reference, a version of the guidelines for each level of Responder and Practitioner is available on www.phecc.ie Feedback on the experience of using the guidelines in practice is essential for their ongoing development and refinement, therefore, your comments and suggestions are welcomed by PHECC. The Medical Advisory Group believes these guidelines will assist Practitioners in delivering excellent pre-hospital care.
