IAED releases Version 13.1 of Emergency Medical Protocol

Medical Priority Dispatch System™ (MPDS) version 13.1 update

MPDS v13.1 will be implemented in the MFR Response Plans on June 26, 2018 


 

MPDS v13.1 includes several enhancements and improvements that may affect some MFR response plans.  You may notice an increase in your selected "card-types" as a result. There is approximately 100 more card-types as a result of this update, many directly related to the opiod crisis. A comprehensive list of the changes is inlcuded below. 

The most significant changes include:

Protocol 23  saw changes with this latest update that address the opioid and fentanyl crisis. There are additional Key Questions, suffixes, and instructions about opioids. New Key Questions also establish the availability of Narcan and naloxone when the patient has overdosed on narcotics.

Protocol 24 now includes information and instructions on Stillbirth and Female Genital Mutilation situations. The updated Protocol has also added a SIGNS-OF-LIFE Warning, which addresses stillbirth or miscarriage events where the infant has any signs of life. A revision to Protocol G helps the dispatcher more effectively handle products-of-conception versus fetus deliveries. The wording in the Protocol is now more sensitive and direct.

Version 13.1 also includes a new Operator Question for 3rd- and 4th-party callers in Protocol 32. Answers to the questions will directly enable the Determinant Code 32-D-1 “LIFE STATUS QUESTIONABLE.”

For more information, there is a news release posted here: https://prioritydispatch.net/iaed-releases-version-13-1-of-emergency-medical-protocol/
