This material is intended for educational use by pre-hospital medical emergency responders. It should be read in conjunction with traditional relevant educational programs that provide for Australian first aid and emergency medical and trauma response. It does not intend to replace other education or training. PrehEMT makes every effort to ensure the quality and currency of this information. It intends to provide guidance to applying appropriate pre-hospital emergency care to common medical and traumatic emergencies. It cannot cover every situation specifically as each patient and circumstance can vary from case to case. Before implementing any clinical practice or patient care the appropriate clinical practice guidelines, protocols and work instructions for the relevant organisation should be consulted and deferred to in all situations.
The text book will get you well started but it will be years before you learn all the fine print. There will be many hard lessons since experience usually comes just after you need it. The experiences of others can be shared though. These hypotheticals share the experience of others who’s path you will be following.
You will have to become more than a bystander, more than a first aider. You are the person who has been sent by the 000 emergency call and in whom the caller is relying. These hypotheticals discuss what is expected from the first on the scene paramedic in all manner of real callout situations
These hypotheticals are all based on real call outs, real patients and real situations. These are the cases where experience came just after it was needed the first time. It doesn’t have to be this way for others though.
These experiences are those of a paramedic. They are directly applicable though to a range of others. The pre-hospital responder is paramedic, military medic, advanced first aider, fire rescuer, emergency or remote area nurse and a range of others who can be called upon as the first to respond to medical or trauma emergencies whether paid or volunteer.
They encompass typical medical and traumatic emergencies as confront pre-hospital responders and look beyond the simple written guidelines and protocols provided.
