As you view the web page you are encouraged to review the Medical Vision for paramedic care. This document describes how and why BCEHS is moving to an evidence based best practice model subject to constant review and improvement. The expert approach is provided for your review to either enhance or reaffirm your best practice characteristics of paramedic pre-hospital care.
The Adult and Pediatric sections contain clinical practice guidelines for patient management by EMR, PCP and ACP practitioners. For clinical purposes, BCEHS has defined a pediatric patient as ≤12 years of age, while an adult is defined as >12 years or showing signs of puberty.
Critical Care Paramedics should refer to the Critical Care Guidelines.
