NWO EMS Guidelines
The guidelines for the Northwest Ohio EMS Consortium are designed to be both a practical guide for the treatment of patients, and a teaching document to be used by prehospital providers. These guidelines are broad guidelines for multiple department / agencies in both the rural and urban environment. Not all components of these guidelines are appropriate for the individual department. These guidelines provide a decision tree, referring to more specific guidelines in the other sections.
The sections (Tabs) within the guidelines are: Administrative, Cardiac, Adult Medical, Obstetric / Gynecologic, Pediatric Medical, Environmental, Trauma and medication guidebook.
The guidelines are updated throughout the year based upon current literature and advances in medicine. These guidelines are put out in PDF format and can be accessed on mobile devices through the PPP Agency App.
