Protocol 5801: Trial Study, Tranexamic Acid (updated 6/25/15)

Cervical Spine Stabilization - For our 2015 Protocol Updates we are adjusting the approach to spinal stabilization and focusing on cervical spine stabilization. The presentation should be used in context with policy review. Current literature, position statements and research are discussed. This update focuses on 1 of the 4 modules for the 2015 education update.

SIRS, Sepsis and Septic Shock - Included in our 2015 Protocol Updates is an educational focus on the EMS recognition of Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS), sepsis and septic shock. With new initiatives surrounding Early Goal Directed Therapy, and an added awareness at the hospital level we are looking to advance SIRS and sepsis care at the prehospital level. This presentation is module 2 of 4 for the 2015 protocol update.

CPR Module and Optimal Pit Crew Procedure Diagram - In the 2015 Protocol Update process we are modifying our approach to cardiac arrest management. This will include changes in how we assess for determination of death and transport during cardiac arrest, as well as changes in the team approach used to manage cardiac arrest. We will begin implementing the Pit Crew model for CPR, and focus on improving patient survivability with a Cerebral Performance Score of 1 or 2. This presentation covers the CPC score, Pit Crew model and pathophysiology of cardiac arrest. This is module 3 of 4 for the 2015 protocol update.

Needle Chest Decompression - Our last module of the 2015 protocol updates focuses on changes to the Needle Thoracostomy Performance Standard. We have renamed the standard to be titled Needle Chest Decompression, and the sites for insertion as well as indications have been adapted to current research and EMS system needs. This is module 4 of 4.
