Jun 23, Justin rated it it was ok I'm turning a corner here, Goodreaders. The old me would rate this book two stars and spend some time telling you how awful the book is and all the reasons I couldn't stand it, etc. But, that's the old me. I'm turning a corner.
Does a paramedic student's exposure to cardiac cases during internship, clinical component, or simulation deepen understanding of cardiac conditions? Although obstetric cases may appear uncomplicated, when complications do occur they can pose significant risk to the mother and baby if not properly managed.
Safe management of childbirth by paramedics requires appropriate curriculum design and training opportunities. A lack of time spent on obstetrics within curriculum has contributed to a lack of confidence among paramedics while managing obstetric cases Dawson et al. Risks of administering systemic analgesics in labor include maternal sedation and respiratory depression, loss of protective airway reflexes, and the risk of neonatal depression Anderson, The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of obstetric in-field calls attended by student paramedics; determine the proportion of patients receiving pharmacological pain relief; and to report the type of analgesia administered.
Do one or more formative examination failures predict a summative examination failure? Impact of lab on critical thinking ability has not yet been examined. Analgesia Provided by Paramedic Students: This study examines the relationship between paramedic student affective domain traits, as measured by the Fisdap Entrance Exam EEand their rate of restraint use in patients experiencing psychiatric crises.
Understanding the changing demographics of individuals pursuing EMS allows educators to better prepare for their audience and changing learning environment. This study describes the diversification of EMS students during the past six years. Research in a variety of healthcare educational disciplines shows that valid formative examinations improve student outcomes on summative exams.
Existing EMS-specific research is scarce on this subject. Previous studies have suggested a link between empathy and personality traits in other professions.
Empathy is an essential affective competency that graduating paramedic students are often required to display. Empathy has also been tied to patient satisfaction, greater diagnostic accuracy, and reduced rates of clinical errors. How Good is Good Enough?
In Cage et al. In this study we sought to explore the optimization of a minimum EP ratio needed for continued competency. Are You There Doc?
However, a recent publication investigating cardiac patient encounters found that protocol based care is equivalent and perhaps slightly better than online medical control.
Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the frequency of paramedic student team leads decision to access physician consultation from the field during cardiac patient encounters.
Additionally, we sought to determine predictors in identifying the likelihood of physician consultation as well as identify any changes in patient care. Previous allied health entrance screening tools have been shown to have little predictive value to overall paramedic student success.
Employers, students, and educators could benefit from accurate pre-paramedic program assessment tools to guide admission and remediation of key abilities. This study evaluated whether the release of this position statement impacted the rates of long backboard and ccollar usage.
This study sought to identify factors associated with the appropriate use of long backboard immobilization following release of these guidelines. Like other health professions, EMS educators are interested in methods that predict student success as entrance exams and background evaluations.
The connection between affective personality traits and paramedic success has also been of recent interest to EMS educators. Many paramedic programs require varying levels of EMT experience for admission, because experience is believed to offer enhanced understanding.
Although these predictive variables have been discussed, limited research on this subject has been completed.Get the latest music news, watch video clips from music shows, events, and exclusive performances from your favorite artists.
