"I've been passionate about EMS since high school.  From watching them demonstrate what they do during the Every 15 Minutes program, to having them come help my family in a couple emergency situations, I was inspired!  Finally, after graduating from college, I decided to pursue my dream and took an EMT Basic course.  I passed, got my state license, and started working for a local company, and I loved it!  Around that same time, an opportunity came up for me to pursue my AEMT, so I enrolled in a course, and proceeded with my training.

The class itself was a challenge, but fun!  We had lecture twice a week, with a third day scheduled to practice...

“It (EMTprep) was very helpful. The way you guys formulate the questions make it easy to ready, and while removing a lot of details from the questions, it give us the essence of the problem and allow us to use critical thinking to answer.

ACS can also be caused by vasospasms which cause temporary vasoconstriction and lack of blood flow. One of the most common symptoms of ACS is chest pain, however, just because a patient has chest pain does not mean that they are...

ROSC. If you’re new to EMS or are looking into Paramedic school, you may have come across this term. If so, you’re probably asking yourself three major questions:

  • What is it?
  • How do we know that we have it?
  • What do we do after we achieve it?

Let’s take a minute to examine cardiac arrest in general, so we can then define what ROSC is. Cardiac arrest is the spontaneous cessation of perfusion by the heart. The heart may continue to squeeze or fibrillate but it is no longer effectively pumping blood throughout the body. This can happen for a number of reasons, but we will focus on three primary causes. First is a traumatic event causing a...
