Paramedicine (PARA)
  FCC
Program Overview:
Graduates of the Paramedicine program will have the knowledge and skills needed to perform pre-hospital medical and trauma advanced life support. With hands-on experience, students will learn how to accurately assess a patient’s condition, operate a cardiac monitor, interpret EKGs, initiate intravenous solutions, and administer lifesaving medications. With the use of advanced patient simulators, students will learn and develop lifesaving skills such as surgical cricothyrotomy, needle thoracostomy, and endotracheal intubation. This program follows the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and fulfills the prescribed requirements that are currently approved by the EMTP practice by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).
