“THE ORIGINAL AND STILL THE BEST” —EMS Magazine
Twenty-three years after publication, the EMS Field Guide remains the most widely-used reference in EMS history. Carried in the pockets, phones and emergency vehicles of millions of first responders, this is the guide EMS Magazine calls “the original and still the best.”
The EMS Field Guide app puts critical information at your fingertips with rich content, detailed illustrations and pioneering features. This app is available in two editions— Advanced Life Support (ALS) and Basic & Intermediate Life Support (BLS)—designed specifically to correspond with each tier of EMT certification and practice, so you know you have the right tool for your job.
The Advanced Life Support (ALS) app equips the Paramedic or EMT-P to triage and address trauma. It provides fast, easy access to vital assessment information, medications, and drug doses; quick interpretation of 12-Lead EKGs; and the latest CPR and ACLS algorithms from the American Heart Association (AHA). The ALS app is also suitable for Intermediates whose practice orders require a more detailed understanding of these topics.
“The EMS Field Guide by Informed is probably the most popular pocket reference guide carried on ambulances across the country.”
“I love your guides. I’ve been a paramedic for 25 years and your ALS guides are the best source of reliable on-scene information.”
“This is a great review tool as well as a resource.”
“…Highly recommended in some of my advanced cardiac life support training courses.”
“One of the best things a paramedic can have. A cheat sheet for the things you may not always remember.”

What's New in Version 18.3.8
Great information, interface needs a tweak.
Anyone in EMS knows about Jones & Bartlett EMS guides. They know and trust the information and most of us are use to flipping through the small spiral bound pages to find the information we need.
This app has all the same information, just laid out differently. I have had this app for several years and have not experienced the problems that the other reviewers have experienced.
The app has never crashed, and I've always been able to get back to the main menu.
The only thing I would change is to tweak the layout. Sometimes you have to go four or five pages deep to get to a particular piece of information. This is time consuming. Other than that...I really enjoy this app!
App is a bit buggy but the info is the same as my pocket brain. I like the peds dosing calcs the most so far
Great content, but if you close the app from a page, you are unable to open the app and go back to the main screen without deleting the app and re-downloading it.
