Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) on Excited Delirium Syndrome
PAR211 Assessment Task 3 2020.
The manager for clinical practice and education at the ambulance service you work for has asked you to develop a report and a Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) on Excited Delirium Syndrome (ExDS) in order to ensure that paramedics are able to recognise and manage the clinical features of this potentially lethal syndrome.
