Article

Despite the recognition of specialists in emergency medicine and the professionalisation of prehospital emergency care, international guidelines and consensus are often ignored, and the lag between guideline publication and translation into clinical practice is protracted.

This article addresses erroneous details regarding life-saving interventions in the South African Medicines Formulary, 10th edition.
