This week Ron covered behavioral Emergencies and started talking about delivering babies in class. How many do you think Kelly has delivered? Find out on this episode.
Ron also passed my Patient Assessment Trauma skill on Wednesday and will attempt Patient Assessment Medical on Monday. So he asks Kelly for tips on doing that exam.
You’ll also get a complete list of books a paramedic student should be reading.
This is Cameron from Colorado. I was wondering what Kelly thinks is the best way to prepare for paramedic school? Do you think you should ready ahead as much as possible? Such as, ACLS protocol, and drug memorization or do you think there is adequate time in the class to learn this material? Also, how much experience do you think an EMT-B needs before attempting P school?
Ken – besides reading Kelly’s book (which is very expensive on amazon), is there anything I can read / watch that can help me start my learning – getting ahead of the curve??
