Pre-Hospital Care Protocols

The State of Maine uses statewide EMS protocols for the care of patients in the pre-hospital environment. Protocols are developed by the Maine EMS Medical Direction & Practices Board (MDPB) and are reviewed/updated on a 2-year cycle.

Maine EMS protocols are available via a free app for smartphones.  It can be found in the App Store (iPhones) or Google Play (Android) as the "Maine EMS Protocol App" from Maine Emergency Medical Services.  Statewide. protocols are no longer printed by Maine EMS but can be viewed, saved, and printed via the PDF link (below).
