Dr. Nick Costain summarizes the evidence and answers the question of whether it’s time to use the pediatric BVM for everyone. See Dr. Costain’s conclusions.
We're hiring Facilitators who'll help with hands-on practice in CME.

Palliative Care Treat & Refer Directives are now available.
The Palliative Care Medical Directives provide the standards of paramedic care for patients receiving palliative care who are attended by emergency paramedics participating in the Ministry of Health's special project, Paramedics Providing Palliative Care.
Paramedic PocketBook+ will be an entirely new tool, built from the ground up with the features and functionality that paramedics, base hospitals and paramedic services suggested.
Due to numerous questions and ongoing changes related to COVID-19, we have created a forum to post answers to paramedic questions and concerns.
RPPEO MedicASK provides paramedics the opportunity to ask your Medical Directors questions about the Advanced Life Support Patient Care Standards or other standards of patient care .
All questions are reviewed and answered by staff within the RPPEO.
Browse through our questions and answers or search in MedicASK for a topic that concerns you. If you don't find your topic, feel free to submit your own question.
