Baby aspirin for chest pain? Do you do it?
For the BLS providers out there do any of you administer or "assist" recommend, etc. 1 or 2 baby aspirin to a pt c/o chest pain? To me it seems like such an easy thing to do with little side effects. We dont carry aspirin in our bag. Just wondering what others do. Im not well versed on regional protocols and if EMT-B are allowed to but if we can administer nitro why not aspirin.
And while I am at it, for the BLS providers, what interventions do you carry?
Standing Orders for Chest Pain
