CPAP and administeration of oral medications
Posted 17 November 2012 - 12:16 AM
Therefore, if the patient develops bronchospasm during an AMI then protocol CP2 trumps CP1 and we can't give ventolin.
Have I ever mentioned how I F---ing hate how our protocols have turned us into cookbook medics?
However, I am not your instructor...perhaps you should seek direction from the College, considering they're the ones who'll be raking you over the coals if they find an issue with it.

When I asked about the situation above, he said that since it was a relative contraindication that it was a cost/benefit situation and patient dependant, so we wouldn't get nailed to the cross for making an informed, intelligent decision given the situation and acting in the best interest of the patient.
In conclusion, another grey area. I was relieved to learn that the college is making steps in the right direction and empowering the providers to make those tough decisions in the field without having to worry about loosing their licence for it.
