Course Description:

After completing this course, paramedic students will apply the basic concepts of development, pathophysiology, basic and advanced skills required to properly manage the trauma patient, respiratory patient and cardiac patients in the pre-hospital environment. These skills include, but are not limited to, respiratory assessment, management of respiratory emergencies, cardiac assessment, defibrillation, cardioversion, medication administration, cardiac rhythm interpretation, 12 lead monitoring and pharmacology interventions. The student will assess and manage emergency patients, properly administer medications, communicate effectively with patients, establish and/or maintain a patent airway, oxygenate, and ventilate a patient.
