Setting new protocols for expedition and wilderness medicine

We have been quite busy with our re-design of the Adventure Doc protocols for treatment of patients in wilderness, remote and expeditionary settings.  I am very excited to be nearly completed with them and the should help our doctors and paramedics in the field a great deal!

These protocols examine commonly encountered medical and trauma assessments on expeditions and adventure travels.  The new additions also include more details trauma/tactical EMS scenarios and standing orders.  This is due to our provision of medical care in potentially hostile environments and our paramedics receiving additional Tactical EMS training.  Everything from altitude sickness and diarrhea to blisters and penetrating chest trauma are covered.  This represents an extraordinary effort on the part of many individuals working with Adventure Doc and I am very happy with the results.

  1. Adventure Doc. Are contract paramedics capable of utilizing your protocols and medical direction? If so, I would love to acquire additional information, as I am in need of periodic medical direction during assignments.

    Thank you,
