Updated 13th June 2017

Update 13th June 2017
CPG 4/5/6.4.16 Decompression Illness (DCI) which was published in 2011 had a decision process in relation to nausea which if present directed the AP to the ‘Nausea and Vomiting CPG. This should have been updated to reflect the new Nausea and Vomiting CPG which permits the paramedic to administer antiemetic medications also. The DCI CPG now reflects this position.


Update 15th May 2017

If the 2017 CPGs for EFR were downloaded prior to 15th May 2017 please discard and download again to ensure all updates were captured.

The dose for Paediatric 1 Month - 11 years was listed as 80 - 100 mg/Kg IV in the medication formulary and the dose on the CPG is specified at 50 mg/Kg IV.  To ensure compatibility the formulary has now been updated.
