Paramedics training in most states of USA is based on reviewing the entire EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) course ... After EMT has been reviewed and passed by the student whom is already an EMT at time of Paramedic Classes ... The review is just a starting point to refresh the students so that when the class continues on where a large amount of class and in the field requires a paramedic to combine the skills in EMT with his Paramedic to efficiently perform his/her duties ...
I myself is only an EMT but I have audited the Paramedic classes a few times to get a little feel of it ... The extra skills the Paramedic Classes teach in most states is how to read a 3 Lead cardiogram, plus knowledge of cardiac drugs and other drugs as well and to properly administer them thru IV (Intravenous Vein) most cases... They also learn how to do a blood draw if it is requested by hospital or is a protocol defined by the individual state he/she is licensed in ... Also have various drugs on board that helps in emergency diabetic situation as well as cardiac or respiratory arrest (CPR Work)
I know my answer is detailed and I hope you get what you are looking for here ... Remember check your state for specifics as I gave the general skills ... Some states are stricter than others in protocols and what medicines are allowed on ambulances and so on so forth...
First aid is a great skill for anybody to know, and will come in handy a lot. People who should ESPECIALLY know first aid would be the following-----Babysitters(Doctors and Nurses)Police officers should know a few basic first aid skillsPeople like paramedics are only trained in first aid, so they should also know.
First Aid is provided on scene, normally by paramedics, before transfer to the hospital. The A&E department at Heartlands operates as any other. Injuries to staff are dealt with using standard first aid protocols as they occur. Heartlands is currently researching, amongst other things, the treatment of whiplash injury and patterns of upper body injury in vehicle passengers.
DEATH!!!!!!!! ------------------------- Emergency first aid is usually required in an emergency situation when somebody's life is at risk. Failing to follow the first tenet of first aid (do not put yourself at risk) can result in serious injury or death to yourself. If first aid is not administered then the patient can suffer severe complications, worse injuries or death before the paramedics can get there. Also, in the workplace, a designated first aider who refuses to help somebody (unless it would be unsafe to do so) can be brought up on disciplinary or even legal charges for negligence.
3 principles of first aid (in order) :Preserve life.Prevent further injuries.Promote recovery.Responsibilities of a first aider :Assess situation.Protect casualty.Identify injuries.Give appropriate treatment.Prevent cross-infection.Arrange removal to hospital.Remain with casualty.Report to paramedics (995/911)
It is Illegal to keep any medication in a first aid kit - mainly because the person that is in charge of the first aid kit in any company is usually just a First Aider and therefore not qualified to dispense medication, (only doctors, nurses and paramedics are qualified). This law is in place to prevent any medication to fall into a persons hands that may be allergic to the medication and if taken could go into anaphylactic shock.A first aid kit that's for personal use at home may contain medication.
