NREMT Paramedic Oral Station scenario


Do they use the one you see on the national registry website as the first one then use a random on the second? If not what was your Oral Station scenario?

No. There are quite a few.

When, when, when...

...when will the health profession and the legal profession learn the difference between "oral" and "verbal"?

Or were we looking into mouths? If so, comment retracted.

No, as PJ said, there are quite a few different scenarios they can pick from, the best bet is to be prepared for all of the possibilities like you're supposed to be. Both of my scenarios had to do with some sort of disease process, that's as specific as I'll be.

Well got'er done today but I have to retest on Static Cardiology and I am not sure why I failed either, I felt very strongly about both. For my Oral Stations I had CVA and Hypothermia patients, nailed both. Just wish I knew what I messed up on in Static Cardiology. BTW I have ZERO Experience as an EMT-B, I am sure you were "Ready for ALL possibilities" as a New Paramedic with Zero experience even as a Basic right? I wish I was as good as EVERYONE on here seems to be at being a soon to be NEW Paramedic! I see everyone here seems to have their MD (it seems like it anyways).

National Registry gives you 6 minutes for 4 strips. I didn't think I went over time, I don't think I have been over time since like the first few times I ever did static but that is possible. During my redo I swear I had a 2nd Degree type 1 because the PRI Got longer and longer until it dropped a QRS and he marked it wrong, but there was nothing I could do about it.

Static Cardiology

For the static cardiology you must get the rhythm correct in order to get credit for the treatment. It is possible that you called the wrong rhythm. Let's say you called it a sinus brady first degree block when it was just sinus brady. In this case, even though you did the vitals, O2, monitor (12-lead), IV, atropine, pacing, dopamine and then epi if needed, none of this would count since you had the wrong rhythm.

I have been conducting NREMT-P exams for 10 years and this is usually the cause of failures on the static cardiology, besides running out of time.

I am pretty sure that a Second Degree type 1 aka Weinkeback is where the PRI gets longer and longer until a QRS is dropped, right? Well that's one of the strips I had and I know I said Second Degree type 1 and gave the correct treatments for it and he gave me a zero for it. But by the time I realized it it was to late to say anything about it, but oh well I will get it next time when I retest in January in Des Moines Iowa.
