Emergency Medical Services Class Supplies
My students need trauma and oxygen bags along with penlights and blood pressure cuffs (aneroid sphygmomanometer) to support hands-on learning and enhance their education.
Have you ever tried to teach hands-on without sufficient materials? To properly teach a hands-on course, especially in the medical field, sufficient materials are required.
High school students share fairly well, but they learn a lot more when they have enough supplies to get engaged in their learning.
Students will use the trauma bags to carry equipment during clinicals, ride-alongs, and simulated events. Penlights will be used to check pupil responses and neurological deficits during classroom and real world training by students learning to be Emergency Medical Responders (EMR) and Certified Medical Administrative Assistants (CMAA). During the school year, these students learn about Emergency Medical Services, Fire Fighters, Police, hazardous materials, patient treatment, health and wellness, first aid, CPR, and they earn the American Heart Association's Basic Life Support card. Those students passing practical skills and National Tests exit the class as EMR's and CMAA's. Many students continue their education and become Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics, Firefighters, Police Officers, Nurses, and Doctors.
Students will use these items to support their learning; allowing each student the necessary hands-on time to learn the processes and procedures plus bags to carry their equipment more efficiently. They will use these items during class, ride-alongs, clinicals, local, state, and national competitions, including the HOSA-Future Health Professionals competitions.
These bags and other equipment are invaluable in the classroom.
They will permit smaller groupings for practice and skills improvement. I currently have only one set for twenty-four students, so increasing equipment is extremely necessary to properly educate our future medical professionals.
