This student study guide is one of three documents prepared for the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), National Standard Curriculum. The course is designed to develop skills in symptom recognition and in all emergency care procedures and techniques currently considered to be within the responsibilities of an EMT providing emergency medical care with an ambulance service. The study guide provides an overview of the objectives and content of each course lesson and includes study suggestions to aid trainees in achieving course objectives. The study guide includes a section for each of the 33 course lessons. For lessons in which new skills and knowledge are taught, the following are included: (1) an introductory paragraph describing the purpose and need for the lesson; (2) objectives that students should be able to achieve upon completion of the lesson; (3) an overview of lesson contents, with emphasis on sign and symptom recognition and emergency care procedures; and (4) study suggestions directed largely toward simulation of performance required on the job. A synopsis of the 33 lessons appears in the introduction to the study guide. Appendixes to the guide include the American Heart Association cardiopulmonary resuscitation guidelines, a bibliography, and in-hospital clinical guidelines. (KC)
