    Study objective

    To assess the frequency of institutional review board (IRB) review and informed consent in emergency medical services (EMS) research.


    Two-year, retrospective review of published EMS research.

    Measurements and main results

    One hundred two studies were analyzed.

    Seventy-one (70%) were exempt from IRB review, 31 (30%) were not exempt.

    Seventeen nonexempt studies (55%) did not obtain IRB review.

    Eight of these did not specify a consent method; one used implied consent and eight used volunteers.

    Volunteers gave informed consent in one study.

    Of the 14 nonexempt studies with IRB approval, seven did not specify a consent method.

    Two used informed consent, one received an informed consent waiver, one used verbal consent, and three involved volunteers.
