“Informative, easy to follow and distinct in their message, I would recommend Informed’s guides without reservation.”
—Joseph A. Grafft, Past President, National Association of EMS Educators
Informed Publishing, the trusted leader in emergency reference information, introduced the original EMS Field Guide® in 1986. Today it is still the most widely used reference in EMS history, trusted by millions of paramedics, nurses and physicians. Whether you are a student or a 20-year veteran of emergency medical services, this guide gives you fingertip access to all the essential information you need to perform your job.
This app puts critical information at your fingertips with rich content, detailed illustrations and pioneering features. The EMS Field Guide app is available in two editions, BLS and ACLS, each designed specifically to correspond with the respective tier of EMT certification and practice—so you know you have the right tool for your job.
The Basic & Intermediate (BLS) app is designed for those with entry- through immediate-levels of EMT certification. It is updated with the latest cardiac arrest and CPR guidelines from the American Heart Association. This edition features the latest EMS protocols, and information about EKGs, home medications and much more. This is the resource you will use in classroom training and in practice throughout your career.
The Advanced Life Support (ACLS) app equips the Paramedic or EMT-P to triage and address trauma.
“As a new EMTB, it’s great to have a concise and easy to follow reference right at my fingertips—thank you.”
—Eric DeMuth, EMTB
“I use both [BLS and ALS guides] for reference and study, and to keep essential topics fresh in my mind.”
—Christopher Matthews, NREMT-P, DTO, MedStar EMS

What's New in Version 8.0.3
Menu and Format Changes
Good app, could use some upgrades
I think this app is a great tool for BLS providers or even the layperson who wants some advanced knowledge of basic life support. The app covers everything from trauma to medical emergencies and even has a list of common medications. The only thing I would like to see is a dedicated section for bleeding. Bleeding control is only briefly mentioned in respective sections but doesn't have its own. How to apply different dressings and tourniquets would be a great addition to this app and would make it 5 stars for me. For now, 4/5.
I love this app, it has all of the basics that I need for prehospital care within my scope of practice. Easy to navigate and see. I did have an issue with the main menu going black, and I got hold of tech-support and they got back to me within a couple of hours. Wow that's great service! Thanks!
Good app, but...
It's a good app, but it needs updated AHA guidelines.
