EMT Basic Refresher: Patient Scenario #1
By Tim Sheehan
Learners follow an EMT response at a high school involving a patient who complains of having difficulty breathing. In this detailed activity, learners examine response procedures, resources, and medications.
Learners read about the role of water, the basic physiology of water balance, and the effects of dehydration particularly on elderly clients. Tips for maintaining proper hydration are presented. In an interactive exercise, students calculate how much fluid a client needs based on his/her age, health, and weight.

These are fantastic! As an Instructor I am always looking for more interactive ways to go over scenarios in the classroom. The only thing I would add would be audio. Thanks so much.Posted by Rebecca Stearns on 9/28/2012 8:40:03 PM Reply
