Through advanced training in medical emergencies, our EMT students learn to adapt the correct procedures and timely measures to provide outstanding care to all patients in emergency situations. Our classes teach the fundamentals of patient assessment and treatment. The standard of practice of an EMT is in accordance with the most current Michigan Department of Health & Human Services guidelines.
Our course enables students to demonstrate skills in conducting careful patient examinations by training them to recognize signs and symptoms of an illness or injury. Our students learn to successfully work with other medical professionals in pre-hospital care. Knowledge of the latest medical tools and practices are woven into our EMT education program to ensure that students become efficient in quality and professional care.
Specific topics include advanced care in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the use of automated external defibrillators, breathing and airway control, body immobilization, and bone fractures. These courses focus on vital instruction in transporting patients, bleeding and shock, soft tissue injuries, respiratory conditions, cardiovascular emergencies, trauma, spinal and head injuries, and other related subjects.
