National Training Course. Emergency Medical Technician. Paramedic. Instructor's Lesson Plans. Module II. Human Systems and Patient Assessment.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
This instructor's lesson plan guide on human systems and patient assessment is one of fifteen modules designed for use in the training of emergency medical technicians (paramedics). Four units are presented: (1) medical terminology, which covers some common prefixes and suffixes and the use of the medical dictionary; (2) an overview of the functions of the human body and its systems (anatomy and physiology); (3) patient assessment, including the patient's medical history, physical examination, and transfer of collected information to the supervising physician; and (4) clinical experience in the emergency department, the intensive care/coronary unit, the morgue, and the mobile intensive care unit. Each unit contains these elements: behavioral objectives, teaching procedures, a content outline, demonstration outlines, a list of needed equipment and materials, and guidelines for activities to be performed by students applying the skills. For skills taught, student 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)
