  • (Approved in Mi only) As of July 1, 2020, ketamine will finally be stocked in the Southeast Michigan (SEM) EMS Medication Box. The changes to our protocols and additions to our medication box effects 9 MCAs, hundreds of LSAs, thousands of drug boxes and even more EMS providers. In this episode, Bonnie Kincaid, Executive Director, Oakland County Medical Control Authority (OCMCA), and Dr. Steve McGraw, the OCMCA EMS Medical Director, walk us through the updated protocols, as well as the process of implementing ketamine into the Southeast Michigan EMS Medication Box. Dr. McGraw is assisted in this discussion by Dr. Gedaliah Cooper, the Oakland Med Control Deputy EMS Medical Director and an ED physician at Beaumont Hospital in Troy, Michigan. We are also joined by Dr. Jon Chenet, an ED resident who was once a professional firefighter/paramedic right here in Oakland County, Michigan. Dr. Chenet is here to provide his perspective as a seasoned road medic and a fairly young ED physician, to help our EMS providers better understand and appreciate the use of ketamine.
