Courses and Descriptions

RESC-1003Rescue Practices

This course introduces a variety of topics including vehicle rescue and extrication, mass casualty incidents, hazardous materials incidents including CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear), disaster planning, and special population groups. Students will explore the paramedic's role in many situations which will present challenges in paramedicine practice in a variety of environments. The integration of pre-hospital health care delivery with the activities of the other emergency responders such as police, firefighters, military, etc will be a focus in each of the sections. Working with special population groups will be an area which will test the paramedic's adaptability and critical thinking. The emergency health system in a multiple casualty incident will test the students' abilities to function in several roles with varying responsibilities as they learn about triage of patients and the prioritization of these injured for transport.
