    Psychomotor Exam - EMT-B

    Hello everyone, how many chances does an EMT-B get at the psychomotor exam? I failed some stations because of the bag-valve mask seal, it was really stupid... I just wondered how many retries you officially get? I only have to test off on two, but the proctors did not allow retakes at this...

    Staying at emt level

    Another reason I want to wait is the responsibility and maturity, not for me... for future patients as well, I don't feel quite ready to become a paramedic for school difficulty, funds, and maturity.

    Staying at emt level

    No other medications tbh I am not familiar with enough, but yes the answer was COPD and ultimately headed towards respiratory failure at some point. Progressively continuing to smoke given the scene appearance, and that he happened to be on the porch when it happened. Well done, great job.

    Gotcha, if you could convince him to go to the ED and you were calling ahead. What is his condition?

    Basic Life Support - Question of the Day - Medic 27 (#3)

    Chief complaint is difficulty breathing, he can speak partial sentences but has to stop to catch his breath. He does purse his lips when exhaling, onset of symptoms were when he was sitting on his porch. Temperature is 100, he does not take any meds other than his portable oxygen. 12 lead shows...
