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.”

James Ridenour, 5 stars:

Excellent App. Very well put together and easy to use. Well worth the price. Highly recommend.

RouseKD, 4 stars:

Very useful, just another resource to have at your disposal to double check or confirm yourself. The hard copy is awesome as well the benefits I see to the app are the ability the designer has to add or update information and the likeliness to have your phone in your pocket is greater than that of the hard copy. ( unless your wear ems cargo pants complete with hemostats and a roll of tape hanging from the pocket)

PFD E-18, 5 stars:

This app is great for quick easy access to refresh on the way to a Accident or medical emergency ! I love how I can save certain sections to be a quick review

Chimedic90, 5 stars:
