An Emergency Medical Technician is educated in assessing a patient and determining if any life-threatening injuries or illnesses may be present on the spot. An EMT has the skills to assess a patient's condition, manage respiratory, cardiac, and trauma emergencies, and transport the patient to a hospital. Everyday duties can include splinting injuries for a patient following a motor vehicle collision, administering life-saving epinephrine for a patient suffering an allergic reaction, or even administering CPR to a patient in cardiac arrest. An EMT’s ability to quickly recognize if someone is injured or dying is
a huge step forward into the medical field.
