About Paramedic on Brainscape

What is a Paramedic?

Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) are first responders trained in emergency medicine who save lives and transport patients to hospitals every day of their working lives.  

The difference between the two is that paramedics have a higher level of education and training, indeed, being an EMT with a specified number of hours is often a prerequisite of many paramedic courses. While an EMT will complete tuition totalling around 150 hours; a paramedic will complete a course of around 1,200 to 1,800 hours.

Paramedics extend on their EMT knowledge and, consequently, can provide more complex care, such as administering emergency medications, inserting IVs, performing advanced airway management, and providing emergency treatment for cardiac patients.

You can find course stats at The Community for Accredited Online Schools or your local college. Why not check out this video in which Christian Jocelyn talks about his job as a paramedic?
