Choosing Who Lives, Who Dies and Gets Picked Up In EMS

Do we choose who lives and dies in EMS or are we just following guidelines, made up my people who are out of touch with reality, research and medicine? Policies enforced with a legal eye and no regard for the patient and their outcomes.

There is a lot that goes with this story and others like it. Phrases like DNR, duty to act and more get thrown around. But there is an issue with this call that goes beyond CPR, deciding who gets it, when they get it or IF they get it.

Join us for this episode as we discuss the CPR, DNR, CCRC’s and the bigger underlying issue that we as EMS professionals face everyday with agencies like them.
