30-Hour Paramedic Refresher
Advanced Airway Management & Oxygenation

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This session explores perfusion, by way of airway, breathing, and circulation.

  • Discuss and identify structures of airway anatomy.
  • Define and describe phases of ventilation.
  • Review pulse oximetry, waveform capnography, bag-mask ventilation, and airway adjuncts.
  • Review oxygen delivery methods and systems.
Airway Management & Ventilation - Section A

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course reviews the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the structures necessary for airway management and ventilation of a patient. It covers airway management for a patient in respiratory distress discussing some non-invasive measuring devices including airway adjuncts.

Cardiovascular Emergencies - Section A

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course will review cardiac anatomy and ACS pathophysiology and correlated treatments. Also included is associated treatments for patients in post-cardiac arrest. Finally the course will help the provider understand the function of ventricular assist devices (VAD) and some of the complications they can provide to patient care.

Cardiovascular Emergencies - Section B

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course will cover the dynamics relating to cardiac arrest and associated treatments for patients in cardiac arrest. It will also review special circumstances that can potentially surround a patient in cardiac arrest and how it can complicate resuscitative efforts.

Cardiovascular Emergencies - Section C

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course will discuss causes surrounding pediatric cardiac arrest including basic and advanced care required when pediatrics present in arrest. This overview will provide the latest science surrounding pediatric CPR as released in the 2015 ECC Guidelines. Also included in this section is review of airway management for the pediatric.

Cardiovascular Emergencies - Section D

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course will review the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system as it correlates to stroke pathology and clinical treatment. It also reviews some pediatric cardiac arrest case studies.

EMS Operations Part I

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

EMS operations is continually evolving and encompasses many aspects of EMS. In this course, you will
  • Describe and understand Crew Resource Management.
  • Identify the benefits and the problems with implementing CRM.
  • Define evidence based practice.
  • Explain why EMS needs to be involved in research.
  • Understand the scientific methods
  • Understand the differences between types of research methods.
EMS Operations Part II

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

As the EMS profession continues to evolve, understanding and identifying professional behaviors in EMS is important. In this course, the EMS provider will understand provider hygiene, safety and vaccinations. Also included will be ambulance safety, EMS Culture of Safety, and Pediatric Transport.

EMS Operations Part III

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course will highlight special populations like human trafficking and domestic violence; focusing in on recognizing the unique characteristics of at-risk populations. It will conclude with a review of EMS research and the use of research in current clinical practice for EMS.

Medical Emergencies - Section A

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course covers various neurologic emergencies including: stroke, seizures, and dementia. Because some neurologic conditions are not easily detected, the provider must have a high index of suspicion with patients who present with altered states of consciousness. This session will remind the provider of the variety of signs and symptoms associated with neurologic emergencies and disorders, and what treatments the provider can provide. Coupled with this session it will include safe and effective treatment for patients experiences a psychiatric emergency and a review of toxicological emergencies – opioids.

Medical Emergencies - Section B

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course includes injuries/illnesses associated with the abdominal and gastrointestinal systems. Though rarely life threatening, a host of systemic issues can arise from undetected/untreated conditions related to the patient’s abdomen and/or GI tract. This session also serves to remind the provider of the location of the various abdominal organs, as well as signs and symptoms associated with the inflammation of certain organs.

Also reviewed in this course is heat-related emergencies and their correlated treatments.

Medical Emergencies - Section C

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course includes emergencies associated with obstetrical emergencies, including an overview of neonatal resuscitation. Also covered within this section is an overview on communicable diseases to include correlated vaccines that are available and approved by the CDC. It will conclude with a review of pathologies and treatments for other nervous system diseases.

Medical Emergencies - Section D

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course will review medication delivery routes and benefits too each. It will also include a section on pain management and ways EMS providers can be better advocates in treating patients presenting with pain.

Trauma - Section A

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course covers hemorrhage control, the role of EtCO2 in CNS trauma, and fluid resuscitation for trauma and burn patients.

Trauma - Section B

Credit Hours (CEUs): 2

This course will review trauma systems, scoring and assessment, discuss the Model Uniform Core Criteria, discuss the CDC Trauma Triage Decision Scheme and provide an overview of SALT Triage.
