#GMVEMSC Protocol: Immediate Change - Ketamine JITSO!!!

All,

It has been brought to the attention of RPAB and the standing orders committee that there is a dosing error in the Combative Patient protocol. Somehow over time we have adopted and changed the dosing to include a repeat dose that allowed a provider to give a total of 1000mg of Ketamine. This is outside the current recommendations for dosing of Ketamine, it also presents an issue in our region requiring the presence of an additional drug bag to complete the repeat dosing. 

After lengthy discussion and communication with the members of RPAB it has been decided to make an IMMEDIATE change to the dosing and use of Ketamine in the Combative Patient protocol. I have attached the JITSO that has both the change to the Combative Patient section and the change to the drug formulary of Ketamine as well. 

These changes take effect immediately and will also be reflected in the 2021 protocol. These changes will be uploaded and reflected on website. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the email below.

#GMVEMSC: FW: New NTSB Report Addresses EV/HEV Vehicle Crash EMS Response

 

EMS News

 

New Report Highlights Potential Risks While Responding to Incidents Involving Electric of Hybrid Vehicles

 

Responders urged to review NHTSA guidance for vehicles equipped with high-voltage batteries

 

A new National Transportation Safety Board report offers safety recommendations for emergency response involving electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid-electric vehicles (HEV) equipped with high-voltage batteries.

NTSB investigations into four electric vehicle fires identified two major safety issues:

  1. The inadequacy of vehicle manufacturers’ emergency response guides.
  2. The gaps in safety standards and research related to high-voltage lithium-ion batteries involved in high-speed, high-severity crashes.

EMS, fire and law enforcement personnel are encouraged to review the report to stay up to date on the latest safety advisories for responding to vehicle crashes of this nature. In addition, NHTSA’s guidance for responding to emergency incidents involving these types of vehicles provides important information for all first responders and can be accessed on NHTSA.gov.

To access the full report, read the official NTSB announcement.
