EMSE 1153 - Advanced Medical Emergencies I

Credits: 4
Hours/Week: Lecture 3Lab 2
Course Description: This course develops the student’s ability to formulate and manage a comprehensive treatment plan for a medical emergency encountered in the prehospital setting. Emphasis is placed upon shock, advanced respiratory interventions, and renal and anaphylactic emergencies. A practicum will allow students to synthesize didactic and practical assessment skills in simulated emergency scenarios and occupational settings. Students must be able to perform physical tasks to complete course requirements.
MnTC Goals

Learning Outcomes
At the end of this course students will be able to:

  1. develop, execute, and evaluate a treatment plan based on the field impression for the hematologic patient.
  2. define the causes and pathophysiology of respiratory arrest.
  3. explain the primary objective of airway maintenance.
  4. develop, execute, and evaluate a treatment plan based on the field impression for the renal patient.
  5. develop, execute, and evaluate a treatment plan based on the field impression for the anaphylactic patient.
  6. perform advanced airway management skills.
  7. develop, execute, and evaluate a treatment plan based on the field impression for the hemorrhage or shock patient.
  8. discuss the physiology of ventilation and respiration.
  9. define the causes and pathophysiology of shock and shock resuscitation.
  10. develop, execute, and evaluate a treatment plan based on the field impression for the respiratory patient.
