Noun

Depending on the policies and medical control of individual EMS systems, prehospital care providers may be permitted to assist patients in taking their own medication that had previously been prescribed by a doctor. These can be referred to as assisted medications. Generally, these medications include autoinjected epinephrine (EpiPen), beta 2 agonists by metered-dose inhaler, and nitroglycerine.
