Emergency Medical Technician Series. Duty Task List.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Vocational and Technical Education, Stillwater. Curriculum and Instructional Materials Center.
This document contains the occupational duty/task lists for 12 duties in the occupation of emergency medical technician. Each duty is divided into a number of tasks. A separate page for each duty lists the task with its code number and columns to indicate whether that particular duty has been taught and to provide space for comments. The 12 duties are (1) professional aspects of emergency medical care; (2) patient evaluation; (3) respiratory maintenance; (4) cardiopulmonary resuscitation; (5) assessing soft tissue injuries and controlling bleeding; (6) the musculoskeletal system; (7) the nervous system; (8) medical emergencies; (9) environmental emergencies; (10) childbirth; (11) crisis intervention; and (12) emergency vehicle operations. The occupational duty/task lists are the result of an extensive two-step development process in which information on current occupational requirements was gathered from such sources as consortia, trade associations, and current curriculum materials and was then synthesized by industry representatives, vocational instructors, and state-level representatives.
