Video: Pocket Guides and E-Pocket Guides for EMS

Do you have a pocket size protocol book or field guide that you carry with you during every shift? I carry our local protocols in my right pant leg protocol (tip: always put your “carry-in” items in the same place so you can find them quickly). I keep my copy of RAPID Paramedic in the truck and reference it often. In this video I discuss different types of pocket guides and books for first responders, EMTs, and Paramedics.

Do you have a field guide application on your PDA, iPhone, BlackBerry or other smart phone? Tell me which apps work well for you. If you build apps for EMS professionals drop me a line so we can write a post about your application and its features.
