SAMPLE History

This EMTprep video reviews how to take and record a SAMPLE medical history.


This video provides a brief overview of what is happening on the cellular level when someone is experiencing anaphylaxis. We also go over what to look for when you respond to someone who is experiencing this life-threatening disorder.

Reading 12-Lead ECG's

In this video, we look at the 8 steps to interpreting 12-lead ECGs.

Case 1 - Acute M.I. - Reading 12-Lead ECGs

We review a STEMI case involving an anterolateral MI. Watch as we walk through the 8 steps to interpreting a 12-lead ECG, then go over our findings with us.

Le Fort Fractures

This EMTprep Education Segment reviews Le Fort Fractures and how they're classified. Knowing this information can help you on test questions and in the field when you hear someone refer to it or if you run across a patient suffering from these type of injuries.

Pitting Edema

This video will walk you through the basics of pitting edema and how to grade it during the patient assessment.

Understanding Pitting Edema

Advanced Capnography

This video will help you narrow done some of the more advanced pieces of information pertaining to end-tidal capnography.

EKGs for EMTs

This video dives into 4 important ECG rhythms every EMT should be aware of. While treatment of these rhythms is out of the scope of practice for the EMT, it is important to be aware of their significance. This is a great video for EMT's who are planning on attending AEMT or Medic school. As always, follow your local protocols.

All living cells in the human body require oxygen in order to efficiently convert glucose into energy. In order for cells to receive oxygen, there needs to be adequate blood flow throughout the body so that oxygen-rich blood can deliver oxygen to the tissues and cellular respiration can occur. When there is impedance in the bodies’ ability to perfuse blood to the tissues, shock may occur. Shock occurs when there is a circulatory failure throughout the entire body, which results in cellular damage and can lead to multiple organ failures if not treated immediately.

Blood pressure is a major determinate in the perfusion of tissues because there needs to...
