Hey all, I was planning on reviewing the nine line protocol for medical emergencies during our RT-130 next month and was wondering if anyone has a power-point presentation on the subject that they are willing to share.

    No powerpoint, but something you may or may not find worth including. I used it for the first time on an actual incident this summer. I’ve always been a bit skeptical of “canned” reports, but it worked great. It gave me a script to provide exactly what the folks on the other end wanted, it gave them a script to know exactly what I was going to say, so there was no second-guessing, no one throwing in a bunch of other questions, any of that which used to be fairly common on medical incidents. Also made a great note-taking tool, I jotted everything down on the form in the IAP so I’d have it to provide via radio, and also had what I needed to refer to later. The one thing I would add to it, would be times. If you’re using a 9-line form, I would add a spot for time of occurrence, time DIVS/Comms notified, and time of transport. After the fact, we had all the notes we needed, but when everyone started asking what time it occurred folks’ recollection varied by up to an hour. A simple line to jot down the times would be very helpful. But it’s a great tool, and worked better than I’d expected. Guess you can teach an old dog new tricks, if you write it down in large print…
