National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
This instructor's lesson plan guide on telemetry and communications is one of fifteen modules designed for use in the training of emergency medical technicians (paramedics). Two units of study are presented: (1) emergency medical services communications systems (items of equipment and such radio communications concepts as frequency allocation, very high frequency [VHF] communications, ultrahigh frequency [UHF] communications, frequency-modulated [FM] radios, and amplitude-modulated [AM] radios, voice communications, and biotelemetry communications); and (2) communication regulations and procedures (requirements for standard operating procedures including coded communication, locally developed protocols, and dispatch). Each unit contains these elements: behavioral objectives, teaching procedures, a content outline, demonstration outlines, and lists of needed equipment and materials. Student 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 planning and implementing the total training program.) (JH)
