Inside EMS Podcast: NASEMSO Scope of Practice Draft

In this week’s episode of Inside EMS, co-host Chris Cebollero and I discuss the invitation to submit comments on the draft NASEMSO EMS Scope of Practice, and what it bodes for the future of EMS.

Most everyone is freaking out over the comment requesting exclusion of endotracheal intubation from the paramedic scope (and most can’t articulate a logical reason why, which doesn’t help our case) yet are remaining strangely silent on the proposed exclusion of PEEP.

Still there are a lot of good additions, both to the EMT and the Medic scope. NASEMSO needs to hear your input. This is your chance to be a steward of your profession.

Listen to the podcast here, and don’t forget to submit your comments.
