Cardiac CareThe course will prepare the Emergency Medical Provider to assess and manage those cardiac emergencies that result from coronary atherosclerosis, along with a number of conditions involving pathology of peripheral circulation. The interpretation of cardiac dysrhythmia receives primary emphasis in this course. Advanced Life Support Certification (ACLS) may be included.4EMSV1105 or EMSV1120 AND Instructor ApprovalEMSV1220View
Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) for EMTEMTs can find themselves in critical situations that require advanced cardiac life support (ACLS). Although EMTs are not trained to provide advanced-level skills, there is much they can do to improve the quality of management, and thus the patient’s chance for survival by understanding ACLS and facilitating its administration by ALS providers. Teamwork is the cornerstone of ACLS care. Advanced life support can only function on a foundation of solid, ongoing basic life support practices. As such, an understanding of the principles of advanced life support will enhance the ability of EMTs to work in collaboration to increase the survival rates of patients. Most importantly, better teamwork will improve care not only during cardiac arrests, but also during all emergency calls.1Healthcare Provider Basic Life SupportEMSV1225View
Trauma CareThis course deals with the many aspects of trauma including: kinematics, evaluation, management, packaging and transport. The course will utilize learner techniques to allow the student to utilize the assessment findings to formulate a field impression and implement the treatment plan for the trauma patient. This class will include the International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) certification.3EMSV1105 or EMSV1120 AND Instructor ApprovalEMSV1230View
