Midterm Study Guide
Assembled by the Shit Happens Ambulance Crew
Mid-Term Study Guide
- Part of blood that are responsible for clotting.
- Systolic BP
- Top number. Pumping pressure of left ventricle.
- Diastolic BP
- Resting pressure of circulatory system
- Works with immune system to get rid of viruses.
- Circulation of blood within organ or tissue to supply with needs. (oxygen, remove carbon dioxide, getting enough blood to live)
- Assuming care and leaving without proper handoff to equal or higher care.
- Airway Obstruction
- Obstruction in airway such as tongue liquid
- A reason not to administer something
- Agonal Respiration
- Gasping sounds dead people make. On edge of death.
- Normal Blood flow through the heart
- Left ventricle pumped to body oxygen, returned to right atrium as deoxygenated, down to right ventricle, out to lungs, back to left atrium, another valve to left ventricle. Repeat.
- Skin blue, lack of oxygen in tissue.
- Myocardial infarction
- Heart attack. MI. Blood Clot in heart. Blockage of coronary arteries that prevents oxygenated blood that reaches myocardium.
- Process of ventilation
- Exchange of air between the lungs and environment spontaneously or with assistance from EMT.
- What to do when you receive order from medical direction?
- Provide vitals, repeat back info, and follow directions if in scope of practice.
- Upper airway obstruction
- Tongue, choking, food, vomit, epiglottis, nose mouth trachea.
- Why give report in radio and in person.
- Over radio to give advance info to prepare. In person more detailed to hand off patient.
- Where are oxygen and carbon dioxide exchanged?
- In the alveoli
- What is area behind mouth called?
- Collection of liquid in the lungs, presence of abnormally amounts of fluid between cells and body tissue causing swelling.
- Implied consent
- Consent through body language or, if minors, or if unconscious or diminished mental capacity.
- What does pancreas do?
- Creates insulin for regulation of sugar in blood.
- Positions of organs
- See page 180 Large intestine and small are on all four quadrants.
Upper left quadrant
i. Stomach ii. Pancreas iii. Spleen iv. Left kidney
- Upper right quadrant
i. Liver ii. Gall blatter iii. Right kidney iv. Part of pancreas
- Lower Right Quadrant
- Organ that regulates body temp
- Difference between cardiac and skeletal muscle
- Skeletal muscle is voluntary, cardiac is involuntary
- Normal range of vitals in adults
- Pulse – 60-100
BP: 120/80 up to 140/90.
- Breaths: 12-20
- Where blood supply to heart and lungs come from
- Pulmonary artery and pulmonary vein.
- Know skills for OPA/NPA
- OPA is for unconscious without gag reflex.
- NPA is for if OPA cannot be used. Do not use if facial trauma.
- How to use NRB
- Non-rebreather mask at 15lpm, press on one-way valve to inflate bag.
- Know what is a Epinephrine pen
- Must call medical control prior. Used for allergic reaction. Lasts about 20 minutes. Epinephrine auto injector. Causes rise in heart rate. Careful with cardiac arrest. Hold for 15 seconds.
- What are standing orders
- Protocols written by medical director.
- Do not resuscitate. Must be signed by doctor and patient and carried with patient at time of incident.
- Lung sounds
- Crackle: thin fluid in lungs. Congestive heart failure, drowning, internal bleeding, and aspiration.
- Wheezing: construction of airway from swelling, such as burns, asthma, and allergic reactions, ie anaphylaxis.
- Strider: High pitched noise. Indication of mild upper airway obstruction.
- Ronchi: thick liquid in lungs, sounds like pudding bubbles, bronchitis, enphazema, pneumonia (dead spots).
- How to open an airway
- Head tilt chin lift, jaw thrust, suction, Log roll for vomit or liquid. OPA.
- Difference between Signs and symptoms
- Signs are visible through body
- Symptoms are something they are feeling or effects of illness.
- Protocols are?
- Scope of work as defined by the medical director.
- Emergent move
- Bypass of proper step such as backboard due to high risk if time will kill him.
- Constriction of the bronchial.
i. Wheezing, bronchial spasm, increased respiratory rate
- CPR for infant
- 1 person 30/2 2 fingers, 2 person is 15/2 with 2 thumbs,
- Order of operations like NREMT questions
- BSI Scene Safe
Nature of Illness/mechanism of injury
How many patients and help needed
- Consider C-Spine
- General Impression
ABC Skin and Transport
Secondary Assessment – revisit problem area
Get new vitals
- Field impression
- Call medical control for interventions
- Know anatomical directions of things
- Prone – face down
Supine – face up
- Fowlers – upright at 45 degrees
- High fowlers – upright at 90 degrees
- Shock – laying down with legs elevated
- Recovery – laying on left side with left arm up, right leg over left like kickstand.
- Superior: up
- Distal: away from midline
- Proximal: closer to midline
- Anterior: in front of you
Posterior: behind you
- Medial: closer to center
- Lateral: further out from center
- Know bones of spine and order
- Cervical -7, Thoracic – 12, Lumbar – 5, Sacral – 5, Coccyx – 1.
