EMS 1423 - Special Considerations


Credits: 3
This course explores challenging EMS situations that provide the paramedic with the greatest difficulty in the field. These range from neonatology, pediatrics, geriatrics, emergencies, abuse and assault, the challenged patient, acute interventions for the chronic-care patient, and assessment-based management. Ambulance operations, medical incident command, rescue awareness and operations, hazardous materials, and incidents along with crime scene awareness are discussed. This course goes beyond the DOT curriculum, and a discussion of rural EMS concludes this course. Lecture 3 hours per week.
