List of EMT and Paramedic Tips and Meds

This page includes an alphabetical list of each week’s offering and a link to each week’s shownotes entry. EMTs and paramedics will be able to use this as a resource to find specific tips and episodes from the past.

How to Use These EMS Study Aids and Tools

EMSPocketGear.jpg

EMS students will find valuable information on these pages as well including the podcast files that will enable them to find the study aids they will need to help them succeed in EMT or paramedic school. The goal of course is to prepare everyone for the NREMT exam.

I recommend that you divide and conquer when approaching your studying. Select a single topic, body system, or type of emergency. For instance choose respiratory emergencies as a study topic. Go down the list below and select your tools from the list. You might select some of the linked episodes like ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome), asthma, oxygen administration, needle decompression, allergies and anaphylaxis.

  1. Load these free episodes on your favorite mp3 player, burn them to a CD, or just listen to them on your computer.
  2. Listen to the episode segments on the respiratory topics (fast forward to the part you want). You can do this on the road, while you are doing chores, and during your other down times.
  3. When you have dedicated study time, review your textbook and study notes. While you are doing this, integrate the tips and information from the audio files in with the info from your text and notes.
  4. Go back and listen to the study tips again while you are driving to work, on the way to class or other “down times.” While doing this, integrate your text and study notes into the mix of information now in place in your memory.

Other Study Aids for EMTs and Paramedic Students
