Even the most skilled EMTs are ineffective if they can’t communicate and document basic anatomic principles to other healthcare providers. This quiz will test your knowledge of anatomy and physiology basics and terms of direction.
Back to the Basics: Pediatric Trauma
EMS professionals must consider the unique pediatric trauma victims’ anatomy and physiology during the interim treatment and transport. How do these differences from adults influence the findings during a trauma assessment and then dictate the ensuing management? Let’s take a closer look.
Clinical Minute: Bleeding Control
A patient can bleed to death in a few short minutes. Your skills will be tested in real life—and on the exam. This clinical minute gives you the must-know information and insights on bleeding control.
Clinical Minute: Mass Casualty Incidents
What happens when there are more patients than you can handle. This clinical minute explains the basics of handling a mass or multiple casualty incident.
Clinical Minute: Spinal Assessment
With new spinal motion restriction protocols, assessment of the spine has never been more important. This clinical minute reviews important concepts in spinal assessment.
Clinical Minute: Spinal Motion Restriction
Spinal care has changed recently. We now use a process called spinal motion restriction. It is a big change and this clinical minute explains it.
Clinical Minute: Triage
When you respond to “the big one” you may be faced with multiple patients. It is essential to know how to prioritize the patients with a concept called triage. This clinical minute explains the basics of triage.
Decision Making Pathway
This exercise will help students make a solid final diagnosis which results in appropriate protocol selection and treatment decisions.
Digesting A Test Question: Spinal Motion Restriction
Many people don’t understand the difference between spinal motion restriction and spinal immobilization. The two terms are similar sounding but quite different in practice. Let’s take a look at the difference by looking at a practice exam question,
EMT Nooks and Crannies
Your EMT class covered material on many different things and patient types yet many of our patients appear to have the same complaints repeatedly. This quiz will take you to some nooks and crannies in the EMT curriculum to brush a little of the dust off some infrequently used knowledge.
