In order for statements to be admissible, the officer must inform the individual under arrest of their rights. These rights are called the Miranda warnings.

In the Arizona vs. Londa case, the court of appeals decided a statement can be admissible even if the suspect was not mirandized under the rescue doctrine if it follows three guidelines:  (1) the presence of an urgent need, and no other course of action promises relief; (2) there is an objectively reasonable concern of the need to save a human life by rescuing a person in danger; and (3) rescue is the primary purpose and motive of the interrogator.
