The Paramedic Practice Committee (PPC) is investigating the need of Advanced Care Paramedics to maintain a ventilator on a chronically ventilated, stable patient.
A form has been developed to track how often ventilated patients are encountered. This form should be completed each time an ACP encounters a ventilated patient during an interfacility transfer. The form should then be returned to Jen Williams.
This information will be used for the PPC in their decision of whether to include this into the ACP scope of practice. This does not permit ACPs to transport ventilators.
