PMD 212 and 212 L - Advanced Prehospital Care of Cardiovascular & Special Population Patients
This second course in an Emergency Medical Technician’s progression to Critical Care Technician or Paramedic covers an in-depth discussion of cardiovascular pathophysiology and advanced treatment modalities including basic ECG interpretation. In-depth discussion of pathophysiology and advanced treatment modalities for special populations include; gynecological & obstetrics patients and neonatal & pedicatric patients. An introduction to hazardous materials awareness concludes this course.
Prerequisites for this course are: successful completion of PMD 211 & PMD 211L Foundations in Advanced Prehospital Care, or permission of the instructor.
General prerequisites include: a currently valid New York State EMT certificate, field experience, and successful completion of instructor approved course work in human anatomy and physiology, e.g. BIO 131 Human Biology I and BIO 132 Human Biology II. Course work in human anatomy and physiology may be taken concurrently.
Co-requisite: If successful completion of instructor approved course work in human anatomy and physiology, e.g. BIO 131 Human Biology I and BIO 132 Human Biology II has not been accomplished then course work in human anatomy and physiology may be taken concurrently which at BCC is the BIO 131 Human Biology I and 132 Human Biology II sequence.
3 Class hours; 1.5 Lab Hours; 2 Clinical hours
Learning Outcomes of the Course:
Upon successful completion of this course, following classroom didactic, affective and psychomotor education along with the completion of clinical time each student will be able to:
1. Synthesize pathophysiological principles with basic and advanced assessment findings to articulate a field impression, and subsequently develop and implement a treatment plan for the patient with:
a. A cardiovascular emergency
b. A gynecological emergency
2. Describe the anatomy and physiology of the female reproductive system.
3. Consistently demonstrate assessment and management of a patient experienceing normal or abnormal labor and delivery.
4. Synthesize pathopysiological principles with basic and advanced assessment findings to articulate a field impression, and subsequently develop and implement a treatement plan for the:
a. Neonatal patient
b. Pediatric patient
5. Recognize and evaluate hazardous material emergencies, call for appropriate resources, and safely manage patients in the cold zone.
