EMSP 1245 - Advanced Endocrine Emergencies

Credits: 2
Hours/Week: Lecture 1 Lab 2
Course Description: This course develops the students ability to formulate and manage a comprehensive treatment plan for a medical emergency encountered in the pre-hospital setting.  Emphasis is placed upon shock, renal, anaphylactic, diabetic, and other endocrine emergencies.  Simulations will allow students to utilize didactic and practical assessment skills in simulated emergency scenarios. Students must be able to perform physical tasks to complete course requirements.  This course requires Minnesota Human Services and National background studies with no restrictions; current AHA BLS Provider certification; current State EMT certification; current healthcare insurance; required immunizations.
MnTC Goals
