Emergency Medical Science - Paramedic - CERT C
The Paramedic program is designed for individuals interested in providing care to patients in the pre-hospital setting at the advanced life-support level. The program will provide participants with opportunities to gain information, skills and attitudes necessary for certification and practice as paramedics in the state of Kansas. The program has been approved by the Kansas Board of Emergency Medical Services. Applicants to the program must be certified EMTs.
Our lives often depend upon the quick, knowledgeable, skillful, and compassionate care of emergency medical personnel. Once dispatched to an incident by an Emergency Medical Dispatcher, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Paramedics take patient histories and make physical assessments to determine the nature of the illness or injury. They give appropriate medical care following strict guidelines. EMTs and Paramedics use special equipment to immobilize patients before transporting them to hospitals. Upo n arrival to the hospital, they report patient conditions to medical personnel.
