Medical TOR

Question:

 

In the event of hangings, drownings and electrocutions, can PCP's call for a medical TOR once they have exhausted their protocol?

Answer:

 

In these events, there is a mandatory patch point. For PCPs, the patch will follow the 3rd rhythm analysis if considering the medical TOR. The intention of the patch point is to receive advice as to whether rapid transport or termination of resuscitation is most appropriate.
