    step up this protocol

    Hi guys

    I took the following sentence from the movie "Fanstastic 4", please take a look at it:

    "You will step up this protocol every three hours"

    The above sentence was used by a doctor who was giving an order to another doctor.

    Would you tell me the definition of "step up" in that context?

    Would you also tell me what a protocol is?

    Thank you so much.

    IMHO step up means follow here, and protocol means procedure (code of behaviour), so it's like Follow this procedure.
