Each year, EPCMS publishes a Directory. This vital reference contains individual listings of the members of the medical society, information about their medical education and training, as well as other healthcare related information.
Going green in 2010, the directory is published as inserts for a three-ring binder. Each year we evaluate which sections will be printed and which sections will remain. The 2013 edition updated the “Physicians” section. The 2014 edition updates every section.
2014 Inserts, Members $35 each
2014 Inserts, Nonmembers $60 each
2014 New Directory, Members $40 each
2014 New Directory, Nonmembers $75 each

The Emergency Care Committee of the El Paso County Medical Society revised the protocol for Rapid Sequence Intubation (RSI). The revisions to the previous protocol are listed below:
• Indications, C, changed to "consider" in GCS of 8 or less, instead of being indicated for GCS of 8 or less "for any reason."
• Technique, G, used to talk about Sellick technique. This "G" section has been completely removed, as Sellick is no longer recommended.
• Technique, H, confirmation steps, changed to emphasize wave form capnography. Also, reference to having to use EDD has been removed as being required.
• Technique, M, references to specific "alternate" airways have been removed and replaced with "backup airway device."
Paramedic Protocols for El Paso County, adopted November 2013.
