Every state in the U.S has an EMS lead agency or state office of Emergency Medical Services that regulates and accredits EMT Training Programs. These offices have websites to provide info to the office. Most basic entry level EMS. Many are volunteers.

Transcript: Emergency Medical Services The start of EMS was marked by Good Samaritan During war Roman Military needed medicines to tend to the wounded and diseased soldiers. So they brought the concept of first-aid back into place Special organizations such as the American Red Cross and American Heart Association were created to advance science and teach others approved lifestyle techniques The future depends on close attention on trends in the emergency medicine and the obstacles you come upon To overcome these obstacles the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) should insist on research based practices and refine research based practices accordingly to provide the best quality of patient care Advances include development and deployment of special blood-stopping dressings Conclusion Wars Wars (continued page 2) Wars (continued page 3) The Napoleonic Wars 1791 By:Destany Stephens First treatment protocol Used chariots to remove wounded from the battlefield Introduction to EMS The World Wars 1910-1940 Iraq War (present) 1970's Korean and Vietnam War 1950-1970 History of EMS Napoleon's Chief Surgeon Dominique-Jean Larrey makes a horse-drawn carriage called the flying ambulances EMS is a coordinated network of professionals where their function is to provide a variety of medical services to people in need of emergency care. They have three missions of EMS. To provide an out-of-hospital patient care,get involved in public safety and health.

Transcript: EMTs who work for private ambulance services may work a wide variety of hours. Some ambulance services schedule EMTs to work 12 hours shifts, such as 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. EMTs that work for other ambulance services may work a 24-hour on-call shift, followed by 24 to 48 hours off. Because emergency care has to be available around the clock, EMTs may end up working 50 or 60 hours a week to be sure there is a professional available at all times. When not actually at work, these heath care professionals may need to remain on call, and may have to respond at a moment's notice in the event of an emergency. Most of the time, when an athlete is injured, a trainer will quickly evaluate the athlete to determine what care, if any, they need. In the event that the patient cannot be safely moved or cared for by the trainer, EMS is asked to intervene. While the crew is there primarily for sports-related emergencies, they also take care of those in attendance as well. Thank You! in early 1970's, president Nixon had just taken office. America was still entrenched in the Vietnam war. The most important milestone, however, occured only a few years earlier in 1966. President Lyndon B. Johnson received the report Accidental Death and Disability: The Neglected Disease of Modern Society, which identified accidental injuries as the “leading cause of death in the first half of life’s span. emergency medial services provide immediate treatment for those who need help right away, like people who are bleeding out or people who cant breath well. Relates to sport medicine history job description members? At almost any area sports event, you’ll see an Ambulance and EMS (Emergency Medical Service) crew over on the side observing. But, what are they really there for? In many athletic competitions, rules and regulations require an EMS crew to be on stand-by in case of an emergency. Since most events include hundreds, if not thousands of spectators, having EMS there makes great sense. EMS providers are trained to care for sick and injured people; they specialize in resuscitating critically sick or hurt patients. EMS crews operate directly under an ER Doctor with protocols that govern how they give care and where they transport patients. Emergency medical services Training that spans from thirty to three hundred fifty hours are usually required by a student who aims to become an EMT-intermediate. The training requirement varies depending on the procedures that the state allows EMTs to perform. EMT-intermediate programs teach students more sophisticated life support skills such as medication dispensing, intravenous procedures and advanced airway management. years of schooling The median annual wage for emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics was $31,020 in May 2012. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. 62 ECG bpm

Transcript: Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics care for the sick or injured in proving emergency medical service. People’s lives often depend on their quick reaction and proficient care. EMTs and paramedics respond to emergency calls, performing medical services and transport patients to medical facilities. - Air traffic controllers: they coordinate the movement of air traffic to ensure that aircraft stay safe distances apart. A high school diploma or GED and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification are prerequisites for most postsecondary educational programs in emergency medical technology. and can be completed in less than 1 year; others last up to 2 years. Paramedics, however, may need an associate’s degree. Educational programs in emergency medical technology are offered by community colleges.High school students interested in becoming EMTs or paramedics should take courses in anatomy and physiology. Paramedics have the most advanced level of education. They must complete EMT and Advanced EMT levels of instruction, along with courses in advanced medical skills. Community colleges and technical schools may offer these programs, which require about 1,200 hours of instruction and may lead to an associate's degree. Paramedics scope of practice may include stitching wounds or administering medications. Requirements - Firefighters: they control fires and respond to other emergencies, including medical emergencies. College or University Career Description - Physician assistants: they practice medicine on a team under the supervision of physicians and surgeons. They are formally educated to examine patients, diagnose injuries and illnesses, and provide treatment. Related Careers Emergency Medical Services - Registered nurses (RNs): they provide and coordinate patient care, educate patients and the public about various health conditions, and provide advice and emotional support to patients and their family members Programs at the EMT level include instruction in assessing patients' conditions, dealing with trauma and cardiac emergencies, clearing obstructed airways, using field equipment, and handling emergencies. Formal courses include about 150 hours of specialized instruction, and some instruction may take place in a hospital or ambulance setting. Course Of Study - Police officers: they protect lives and property. Detectives and criminal investigators, who are sometimes called agents or special agents, gather facts and collect evidence of possible crimes.
