Guidelines for MMT doctors and MMT nurses who work in the Netherlands for one of the mobile medical teams in prehospital acute care for the critically endangered patient in addition to Dutch ambulance services.
This MMT Guidelines app only contains information for healthcare professionals who work for one of the mobile medical teams in the Netherlands. These Guidelines are not intended for self-care by patients, and therefore do not constitute medical or treatment advice for patients or care providers other than physicians working for a mobile medical team. As such, this app should not be relied upon for medical diagnosis or as a recommendation for medical care or treatment by third parties.
All content, including text, images, and information on or available through this app is for general information purposes only to MMT physicians.
We strongly advise the MMT doctor to weigh all information obtained from or via this app in the circumstances specific to the patient to be treated, taking into account, among other things, hazards in the workplace, weather conditions, co-morbidity and co-medication, etc. An MMT doctor can therefore deviate from the guideline in a well-founded manner if there is a belief that in certain circumstances (environmental factors or patient-related factors) a different policy is better than the policy proposed in the guideline. We therefore expressly point out your individual responsibility as an autonomous physician or woman as described in the Hippocratic Oath. The guidelines therefore serve as a recommendation to the MMT doctor during care and, unlike with a treatment protocol, cannot be set as a strict standard in any legal justification. Not by a complainant and not by a accused MMT doctor.
This app is not a substitute for other more extensive works in the field of emergency medicine including trauma surgery and emergency anaesthesiology. For complete background information, the user of this app is referred to the most recent national guidelines and advice.
This app is made for the Dutch prehospital practice. Where possible, national guidelines and protocols have been used, which have been drawn up or which are endorsed by the scientific associations of the relevant medical specialties. For treatments for which there are no national guidelines or agreements, we propose treatments that are based on expert opinion and best practice in emergency anaesthesiology, (child) intensive care medicine and traumatology.
Although the utmost care has been taken in compiling and processing all data, the authors cannot be held liable for damage resulting from any errors or other inaccuracies in this app.
The app is frequently updated. We welcome feedback via MMT Guidelines@gmail.com to help make these updates as effective as possible.
