Delivering Your Continuing Education Needs
An evolving model of community-based health care in which paramedics function outside their emergency response and transport roles in ways that facilitate more appropriate use of emergency care resources and/or enhance access to primary care for medically underserved populations.
Emergency medical services are dedicated to providing out-of-hospital medical care, with transport to definitive care for patients. The goal of emergency medical services is to provide treatment on scene to those in need, arrange timely removal of the patient, and provide emergent care en route to the care destination.
The movement and transportation of patients from one healthcare facility to another health care facility. The inter-facility transport of patients between medical facilities is a fundamental component of the healthcare system to ensure continuity of care is provided by appropriately qualified EMS personnel.
Critical Care Transport
The transport of a critically injured or ill patients by a ground or air ambulance, at a level of service beyond the scope of the EMT or Paramedic. Critical Care Transport is necessary when the required ongoing care must be furnished by one or more health professionals in an appropriate specialty area.
