EMS Practice Parameters and Guidelines

Online EMS Repository


The EMS1 Practice Parameters and Guidelines archive is a digital library of protocols and guidelines. Submissions have been reviewed by an expert team of EMS physicians [Click here for Review Faculty]. The guidelines are sorted into 3 categories:

 Best Practices — Individual submissions voted by the reviewers as the most outstanding currently listed on the site
 EMS Guidelines Repository — Collection of other guidelines, protocols and practices submitted to EMS1
 Complete Sets — Word Document and/or PDF version of complete protocol sets

EMS1 created this section as a service to the prehospital community. Recent updates or revisions may not be reflected in documents posted below. Practice of prehospital care requires medical control and physician oversight.
