Medical Provider Roll Call

#6
Good to see I'm not the only Ritalin Kiddie of the medical world roaming the forums.

EMT-I, Both 911 and Extended transport. Part of the Critical Care crew for when shit gets real and the air crews aren't flying. Donate my time to provide medical support for the LEO side of things.

Where did you pick up your Wilderness EMT cert?
Did my EMT-B with the state. Then got sent to the university for a NOLS WUMP course. After attending the upgrade and working with some of the students that had attended the WEMT in Lander I was impressed by their skill level.

Welcome to the disfunctional family! If you don't have an undiagnosed mental disorder right now, you'll have one by the time you're finished. Seen enough Psyche evals to prove it.

If I understand it correctly Iowa WAS the only state to have EMT-PS. With the new national curriculum we're transitioning the the NREMT-P or PM certification. EMT-PS was pretty much the national standard Medic plus/minus a couple skills. Basically same shit under a different name.

Critical Care Paramedics (CCP's) are still considered PM's or PS's but they are granted an expanded scope (with medical director approval of course). Critical Care is merely an ENDORSEMENT in Iowa. Not an additional license/certification. You still have educational requirements to maintain the CC endorsement but also have to maintain your PM educational requirements. CCP skills used to be limited to only interfacility transports but in the last year or two the state expanded their role to be able to apply their CC scope to the field (such as 911 environments).
