Introduction

You are about to enter an exciting field. As an emergency medical technician (EMT), you will be a critical part of the emergency medical services (EMS) system. EMS is a team of health care professionals who are responsible for and provide emergency care and transportation to the sick and injured (FIGURE 1-1). While not every call for care will involve a life-threatening emergency, the compassion, professionalism, and skill you bring will have a tremendous positive impact on each patient you encounter.

Description

This course is the initial step in acquiring the critical knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) you will use to help with emergency and nonemergency prehospital medical problems (FIGURE 1-2). The National EMS Scope of Practice Model describes the four levels of EMS practice. The National EMS Education Standards outline the knowledge and competencies that should be taught to students in each of these four levels of EMS practice. This education incorporates all the KSAs needed to become a competent, entry-level EMT. Education must continue long past the end of this course as you refine your KSAs, learn the details of working in a particular part of the health care system, and grow and adapt to keep up with the health care industry overall. For any role in emergency services and health care, education must continue throughout your career.
