National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
This instructor's lesson plan guide on general pharmacology is one of fifteen modules designed for use in the training of emergency medical technicians (paramedics). Five units of study are presented: (1) the sources of drugs, drug names, solids and liquids, and the different forms in which drugs may be dispersed; (2) the action (effects) of drugs; (3) the metric system and how to calculate drug dosages; (4) safety considerations and procedures when administering drugs in the field; and (5) practice skills in drawing up solutions in a syringe and making intravenous injections, subcutaneous injections, and intramuscular injections. Each unit contains these elements: behavioral objectives; teaching procedures, a content outline, demonstration outlines, list of needed equipment and materials, and guidelines for activities to be performed by students applying the skills. Skill evaluation sheets are provided. It is suggested that each module can be presented individually or combined with other modules to construct a course for a selected group of students. (CE 017 514 is a course guide for use in program planning and administration of the modules.) (JH)
