    Found a good source (I think it's current):


    That's more than I would have expected for what would be an EMT-B anywhere else, right?

    Here's a joker: Standardized Procedures

    At least in CA, within a given medical director/company's bailiwick, some otherwise verboten procedures can be assigned for LVN's, RN's, and other non-traditional EMS operators by setting up approved training (good to have a provider's number as a training facility, not too hard to get), keep good records, teach the St Proc, then have a test and periodic refreshers. I once had this explained to me: as long as the employees did not leave the premises or even a company owned vehicle, they could perform the st proc. Scarey.

    Scope of practice for Alberta EMS can be found at: www.collegeofparamedics.org and then follow the links to each level from EMR to EMT-P.

    I would like to note, that we are regulated by a COLLEGE. This term confuses alot of people. However, our DRs are regulated by the COLLEGE of physicians and surgeons. And, our nurses are regulated by the COLLEGE of nursing. Also, as EMS practitioners, we also fall under the health PROFESSIONS act. At least up here, we receive the recognition as a necessary provider of medical treatment. The term COLLEGE in this case does not mean an institute of learning.

    Pennsylvania just underwent some progressive updates in their protocols for both BLS and ALS.

    In summery here are the BLS changes and additions:

    - CPAP carried on BLS units
    - No longer required to carry activated charcoal
    - Bleeding Control Protocol
    Tourniquet use emphasized for bleeding control
    Hemostatic agents (powders) for bleeding control
    - Nerve agent kits (injectable meds) for personal use onboard BLS ambulance. May only administer to patients after ALS evaluation.

    In summery here are the ALS changes and additions:
    - Change in Benedryl dose from 25mg to 50mg
    - Addition of IV NTG
    - Benzo's for vertigo
    - Intranasal - fentanyl, glucogon, Ativan, Versed, Naloxone
    - Crush injury treatment (sodium bicarb & calcium chloride immediately prior to extrication)
    - ACE inhibitors for CHF - pretty much done away with lasix
    - Therapeutic hypothermmia
    - Analgesic for fluid or med admin by IO in conscious patient

    Any other states allow CPAP for BLS?
