This may be the week with the least amount of learning activities—but this narrow scope of material accounts for more than 20% of the NREMT examination. The NREMT not only wants you to know the facts and figures of CPR, you’ll also need to know how to run a “code,” think critically about resuscitation decisions and troubleshoot when things go wrong.
Student Study Guides
Your book is too big and your class lectures were long. Where do you go when you just want the down and dirty facts? Our Study Guides provide just the right amount of relevant clinical information and insights to help you pass the test—and practice clinically as an EMT. Study Guides provide a review of A&P and pathophysiology, along with the signs, symptoms, treatments and clinical facts you need—quickly and accurately.
5 Week Study Guide – Week 5
Operations is sort of a catchall for the NREMT exam. It covers things not covered in the first four sessions. It not only covers the material traditionally in the back of your textbook (hazardous materials, driving, extrication, MCI), it also covers material from the front of the book including lifting and moving, medical-legal and more. In this week we will provide focused study in a variety of operations areas.
