Manual of Prehospital Emergency Care Protocols - Stanford Emergency Medicine International (Stanford University School of Medicine)

Stanford Emergency Medicine International (Stanford University School of Medicine) published the 2nd edition of the Manual of Prehospital Emergency Care Protocols, India’s guidelines for the delivery of prehospital care. The development and implementation of such EMS protocol standards facilitate the uniform treatment of injuries and illnesses such that all patients receive the current standard of medical care at the most appropriate location. Prior to March 2011, these protocols were non-existent or insufficient in quality. Experts from Stanford University School of Medicine and GVK EMRI have developed 55 EMS protocols for use by Indian physicians, EMTs and educators. These EMS medical protocols (practice guidelines) will provide the highest quality patient care, ensure countrywide uniformity and consistency of prehospital care, and promote current evidence-based practice related to EMS (when this evidence is available). These EMS protocols will also account for and accommodate regional medical practices and medications, and language and cultural issues. The first copy of the second edition was presented to Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, honorable former President of India, by AAEMI board member Dr. S. V. Mahadevan. Over 4000 of these manuals will be printed and placed in ambulances across the country.
