EMT Basic Refresher: Patient Scenario #6
By Tim Sheehan
Learners follow an EMT call to a retirement community to assist a woman who is having difficulty breathing.
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.
