Clinical Practice Guidelines

A collection of the WMS clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) has been curated for easy reference. The collection features the newly developed CPGs and updates to our previously published CPG series. Our goal is to provide the most up-to-date and relevant clinical information to frontline providers in wilderness or austere environments. All recommendations are graded based upon the clinical strength of available evidence as outlined by the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP). Access the full collection here
