I’m considering moving out to Arizona, and was just curious about how you guy’s protocols are. Just going off what I’ve read, it looks like only some agencies are allowed to RSI and preform surgical cricothyrotomy. Do you guys know which one’s can and can’t RSI or surgical cric?

Depends on where you want to work. The greater Phoenix area is pretty much fire based, so unless you just want to be an ambulance driver, I would avoid the Phoenix area.

Alex, you might want to read this month's EMS World "State Department" article about Arizona EMS.
