EG 110 - Paramedic Clinical II

Credit Hours: 1

Building on the introductory experience gained in EG 109 in the emergency department, the student will develop added confidence in the skills of patient assessment, vital signs, blood draws and IV insertions, while under the supervision of designated clinical preceptors in ERs. Observation in the Cadaver Lab of Daemen College will afford the student the opportunity to see anatomical landmarks in relation to field interventions. Students will attend a seminar on early stroke recognition and treatment and observe the diagnostic testing and early interventions performed with new onset stroke victims. Students will also attend the Cardiac Angiography lab to view diagnostic procedures and treatments related to coronary reperfusion. The Cardiac Electrophysiology lab will expose students to diagnostic procedures and treatments of acute cardiac dysrhythmias. The Cardiac Stress lab will provide students the opportunity to perform and interpret 12 lead EKG's during diagnostic testing.  Communication skills, both written and spoken, will be emphasized and reinforced through experiences at the county radio dispatch center (MERS).
