REVISIONS & UPDATES

While the CEMSMAC/Statewide EMS Protocol Subcommittee will be conducting planned annual reviews of the document, they have also built in two additional pathways to request interim review.
  • An emergency change, would be a request identified due to a medication/equipment shortage/supply issue, or dramatic shift in standard of clinical care that would result in a risk to public health by delaying review and implementation to the annual review cycle.   Due to the emergent nature of these requests, review would be expedited and the decision would be communicated to the petitioner in five business days.
  • desired change, would be a non-emergent request, and reviewed by CEMSMAC on a quarterly basis, or sooner.  The decision would be communicated to the petitioner once it is available.
