Paramedicine Principles 2 is the second course that specifically addresses common medical and surgical conditions and emergencies that are encountered in paramedic practice. This course will enable students to further develop essential knowledge and skills in assessment, provisional and differential diagnosis as well as management of individuals who may present with an undifferentiated medical condition. Therefore, a broad range of topics related to practice are presented.
Medical and surgical emergencies account for a significant portion of the cases attended by paramedics. Therefore, this course will examine a diverse range of conditions including neurological, endocrine, metabolic, renal and gastrointestinal. The epidemiological, pathophysiological and clinical presentations of these conditions will also be covered. This course will also develop the students' ability to acquire and critically appraise evidence and determine the relationship between provisional and differential diagnosis.
