Emergency Medical Responder (PARA)
Graduates of the Paramedicine degree program will have the knowledge, attitudes, skills, habits, and hands-on experience needed to perform pre-hospital advanced life support as they respond to medical and traumatic emergencies under direct medical control. The performance of advanced cardiac life support, pre-hospital trauma life support, pediatric advanced life support, and neonatal advanced life support procedures are stressed throughout the curriculum. Specifically, graduates will be able to: accurately assess a patient’s condition, operate a cardiac monitor, interpret electrocardiograms (EKGs), perform endotracheal intubation, initiate intravenous solutions, and administer medicines. This program follows the National Emergency Medical Services Education Standards established by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and fulfills the prescribed requirements that are currently approved by the EMT-P practice by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).
