In this course, students will explore advanced theoretical concepts related to the assessment and management of disease, illness and injuries of the respiratory system with a focus on interventions within the scope of practice for the Advanced Care Paramedic (ACP).  The knowledge gained in this course will allow the Advanced Care Paramedic to develop a working differential diagnosis to assist in the management of patient conditions related to the airway and respiratory system.

Prerequisites:
PARA-3017Advanced Cardiovascular Studies
More Information

In this course, students will explore advanced theoretical concepts related to the assessment and management of disease, illness and injuries of the Cardiovascular System with a focus on interventions within the scope of practice for the Advanced Care Paramedic (ACP). The knowledge gained in this course will allow the Advanced Care Paramedic to develop a working differential diagnosis to assist in the management of patient conditions related to cardiovascular compromise.

Prerequisites:
PARA-3018Advanced Neurologic Studies
More Information

In this course, students will explore advanced theoretical concepts related to the assessment and management of disease, illness and injuries of the central nervous system with a focus on interventions within the scope of practice for the Advanced Care Paramedic (ACP). The knowledge gained in this course will allow the Advanced Care Paramedic to develop a working differential diagnosis to assist in the management of patient conditions related to neurologic compromise.

Prerequisites:
PARA-3019Advanced Gynecological and Obstetrical Studies
More Information

In this course, students will explore advanced theoretical concepts related to the assessment and management of disease, illness and injuries of the reproductive system with a focus on interventions within the scope of practice for the Advanced Care Paramedic (ACP). The knowledge gained in this course will allow the Advanced Care Paramedic to develop a working differential diagnosis to assist in the management of patient conditions related to the gynecological, obstetrical and reproductive systems.

Prerequisites:
PARA-3020Advanced Neonate and Pediatric Studies
More Information

In this course, students will explore advanced theoretical concepts related to the assessment and management of disease, illness and injuries to the neonatal and pediatric populations with a focus on interventions within the scope of practice for the Advanced Care Paramedic (ACP). The knowledge gained in this course will allow the Advanced Care Paramedic to assess and interpret signs and symptoms and develop a working differential diagnosis in order to initiate approved management techniques in neonatal and pediatric patients. In addition, this course will include instruction on neonatal resuscitation and Pediatric Advanced Life Support techniques.

Prerequisites:
