EMS 2647 - Advanced Airway Management
This course presents the objectives contained in the 1998 U.S. Department of Transportation National Standard Curriculum for the EMT-Paramedic for advanced airway techniques and the anesthesia rotation. This course stresses theory and procedures used by a comprehensive emergency medical system in advanced pre-hospital care of the emergency patient, focusing on advanced airway techniques. This course is a combination of classroom work, laboratory exercises and an anesthesia rotation. Students will be allowed to practice advanced endotracheal intubation patient care and the course offers the students opportunities to demonstrate competency in the skills learned in the Paramedic II Laboratory. Students will be assigned to a specific operating room to perform endotracheal intubation under the direct supervision of an anesthesiologist. Course must be completed with a grade of "C" (80 percent grade average) or higher to continue in the Paramedic program. All Paramedic students must submit to a National Criminal Background check prior to beginning any clinical rotations. Students must not have been convicted of a crime as listed in the EMS student handbook available in the EMS department. This course may be repeated one time. Permission of the EMS Program Manager is required to repeat the course. This course is offered in the Spring and Summer terms. This is one component (course) of a limited-access program.
