The September 2018 update to the Paramedic Clinical Practice Protocols manual contains two new medications: tranexamic acid and calcium.
Primary Care Paramedics and higher will now be able to monitor tranexamic acid (TXA).
Advanced Care Paramedics have been approved for the administration of tranexamic acid (TXA). In addition, ACPs have a new hyperkalemia protocol which includes the use of calcium.
The Education Committee has developed the following training packages for the new medications and patient care plan being introduced into paramedic practice. All members PCP and higher are required to do the training applicable to their licence level.
No paramedic may monitor or administer these new medications without first completing this education.
