About Us

Based near Portland, Oregon, Informed® Publishing has been creating innovative tools for first responders and health care providers for more than 25 years.

Since the first edition — originally known as the EMS Field Guide™ — was released, the books have evolved into full color graphics and text professionally printed on tear-resistant and waterproof plastic. These street-tough field guides for emergency professionals are pocket sized, spiral-bound reference tools with tabbed indices for ease of use.

Beginning in 2010, the guides also became available as leading interactive apps. On iTunes, Nursing Essentials was Informed’s first app to hit the #1 position in the iTunes’ Medical Category. Since then, the Critical Care ACLS Guide, EMS ACLS Guide and EMS BLS Guide have all soared into top 10 positions in the Medical category. Additionally, Informed’s NIMS ICS Guide, EMS Pediatric Guide and Fire Officer Field Guide – SHS edition are frequently featured in “What’s Hot” on iTunes.

In 2011, the EMS ACLS Guide became the #1 selling medical app on Android, with the Critical Care ACLS Guide, EMS BLS Guide and Nursing Essentials all securing spots in the top 10.

When the Nook Color app store launched in 2011, Informed’s medical apps were among the core 150 apps Barnes and Noble selected for launch.

Most recently, Informed’s entire suite of apps have landed in the Amazon Appstore for Android.

Informed’s guides have become the industry standard, providing critical information in an accessible format. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of first responders and health care providers across the globe.

Informed makes a practice of incorporating customer feedback and recommendations in our quest for continual product improvement. Additionally, all guides are written by practicing professionals and are field-tested around the world.
