Developed by Subcommittee: F30.02
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This practice covers guidelines for prehospital providers performing manual defibrillation.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F30 on Emergency Medical Services, this practice was withdrawn in 2007 with no replacement because the change in 1994 to the national curriculum has made this standard obsolete and the committee does not see a need to develop new standards under the new curriculum.
