EMT Basic Refresher: Patient Scenario #3
By Tim Sheehan
Learners follow an EMT response to the home of an elderly man. The patient complains of having difficulty breathing. In this detailed activity, learners examine response procedures, resources, and medications.
Learners read about audiological tests including pure tone testing, air conduction, bone conduction, Speech Reception Threshold, and Speech Discrimination Score. They listen to sounds and words recorded at different decibel levels and see a graphic representation of decibel ranges. A brief review concludes the activity.
