ET Intubation

Bob Smith made this Freedom of Information request to East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

I am writing to request information on endotracheal intubation in your trust. Specifically:

- Which staff grades (e.g. EMT, NQP, paramedic, CCP, Dr, etc) are allowed to intubate, as a core skill of their clinical grade?

- Which staff roles (e.g. frontline paramedic, HART paramedic, managers, BASICS, etc) are allowed to intubate, as a core skill in their role?

- What are the requirements for individual clinicians to demonstrate and maintain competency in intubation?

- Does the trust plan to expand (or remove) intubation to further grades/roles in the trust?

- Do trust paramedics perform needle cricothyroidotomy?

Yours faithfully,

Bob Smith
