?388: Introduction to Emergency Medical Services in Splash Fall 17 (Nov. 04, 2017)
Have you ever wondered what it's like to drive with lights and sirens? Or what an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or Paramedic does? We'll learn about how Emergency Medical Services (EMS) works and the types of calls an EMT or Paramedic may have to deal with. For some of the more common calls, we will learn how an EMT may recognize and deal with a medical emergency without a diagnosis from a doctor. The class will also go over the fascinating history of pre-hospital healthcare, before there were ambulances to transport patients to the hospital. To end, we will learn how to take vitals, including blood pressure and lung sounds, something that a lot of healthcare professionals learn how to do.
