EMT is the first level for entry into pre-hospital care, using a sophisticated ambulance and its equipment, in saving lives. EMT’s are trained in bleeding control, positive pressure ventilation with a bag valve mask, oropharyngeal airway, nasopharyngeal airway, supplemental oxygen administration, taking vital signs, pulse oximetry, glucometry, oral suctioning, eye irrigation, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), splinting (including full spinal immobilization), traction splinting, deliver in a normal childbirth, assist with a complicated birth, and medication administration (such as epinephrine auto-injectors, oral glucose gel, aspirin, nitroglycerin, and albuterol). Some areas may add to the scope of practice for EMT's, including intranasal nalaxone administration, use of mechanical CPR devices, insertion of additional airway devices, and CPAP. Training requirements and treatment protocols vary from area to area.
