Emergency Medical Services

 

THE ROLE OF THE EMS PROVIDER

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) and Paramedics are allied health professionals whose primary focus is to provide basic and advanced emergency medical care for patients who access the emergency medical system. These individuals possess the complex knowledge and skills necessary to provide competent care and transportation to those with critical and emergent conditions. 

Both Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics function as part of a comprehensive EMS response under medical oversight. Emergency Medical Technicians are entry level providers of basic emergency care. Paramedics perform interventions with the basic and advanced supplies and equipment typically found in an ambulance. These providers are an essential link from the scene into the health care system.

The Emergency Medical Technician’s scope of practice includes basic life support skills and important patient assessment techniques. The Paramedic’s scope of practice expounds on that of the Emergency Medical Technician and includes advanced life support skills including invasive and pharmacological interventions to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with acute out-of-hospital medical and traumatic emergencies. These providers must focus on the acute management and transportation of the broad range of patients who access the emergency medical system. This may occur at an emergency scene until transportation resources arrive, from an emergency scene to a health care facility, between health care facilities, or in other health care settings. 

Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics must both demonstrate each competency within his or her scope of practice in a wide variety of environmental conditions and for patients of all ages. Emergency care is based on patient assessment and the formulation of a field impression. Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics provide care designed to minimize secondary injury and provide comfort to the patient and family. Their role may include transporting the patient to an appropriate health care facility or appropriately executing other patient dispensation options.  

These providers must demonstrate the willingness to care for people with compassion, an awareness of their abilities and limitations, strong inter-personal and communication skills, and a capacity for calm and reasoned judgment while under stress. They must blend multiple intelligences with common sense and be service oriented.
