Hi Tom and Jon, I'm very interested in the idea of non Intensive Care Paramedics aquiring and transmitting 12 leads. I have already educated an area of non ICP's in this with very good success.

Regards

Steve

Jon -

I'm pretty sure it's allowed in Texas. Let me do some checking around and I'll get back to you.

Thanks,

Tom

Historically, the use of 12-lead ECG has been a function of ALS but times are changing. In EMS today, 12-lead ECG interpretation remains largely a Paramedic skill however, the simple act of acquiring and transmitting a 12-lead ECGs does not require an ALS skill set.

I am interested to know where in the United States, a BLS provider (First Reponder, an EMT-Basic, an EMT-Intermediate in BLS environment) is permitted by Scope of Practice to acquire and transmit 12-lead ECGs.
