ALLH 2328 - Emergency Medical Responder


Lec. 3; Lab. 1; Cr. 3

This First Responder course provides a study of the emergent conditions of victims of a medical emergency in the pre-hospital environment. A patient assessment model focusing on airway, breathing, and circulation is implemented in determining the seriousness of a patient's condition or extent of injury. Assessment findings are utilized to administer basic emergency care with a limited amount of emergency equipment until the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) team arrives. Emphasis is placed on scene stabilization and initial management of mass casualty incidents, skills fundamental to the role of a First Responder. Course content adheres to the United States First Responder curriculum and prepares students for the Louisiana First Responder certification.

Prerequisite(s): Must be eligible to take ENGL 1001 , enrolled in a professional level CPR course, or consent of the Dean, Division of Health Sciences and Business Technology.
