1 Emergency Medical Services Professional Faculty: Bobby Valles, director Fire/EMS; Oscar Menchaca, EMS instructor/coordinator; Kyle Vaught, clinical coordinator, Quentin Dobmeier, Fire/EMS instructor; Jeff Pinnow, medical director The Emergency Medical Services Professional program prepares students for careers in paramedicine, a fastpaced and challenging health care field. Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics provide immediate, life-saving care to the sick and injured. Entry-level First Responders (EMT-Basic) are trained to provide basic emergency medical care because they tend to be the first persons to arrive at the scene of an incident. Many firefighters, police officers, and other emergency workers have this level of training. An EMT-Basic is trained to care for patients at the scene of an accident and while transporting patients by ambulance to the hospital under medical direction. The EMT-Paramedic has more advanced training and assessment skills that allows the administration of intravenous fluids, interpreting electrocardiograms and giving lifesaving shocks to a stopped heart, as well as performing advanced airway techniques and using equipment to assist patients experiencing respiratory emergencies. Odessa College offers two levels of EMT training: Basic and Paramedic. The Odessa College Emergency Medical Services Professional Program grants two levels of awards: a level one certificate in Emergency Medical Services Professional Paramedic and an Associate s Degree in Applied Science in Emergency Medical Services Professional. All courses in the level one certificate apply to the associate s degree. Depending upon individual circumstances, students may be required to repeat courses or complete competency exams prior to acceptance into the program they stop-out after completing an award or are transferring from another institution. The program combines classroom and/or online instruction with supervised laboratory, clinical/practicum, and ambulance experiences to prepare the graduate for certification. EMT classes are exciting and challenging courses. Students are expected to spend a large amount of time outside of class studying and applying the material that is presented in class. With department approval, students can take EMT-Basic classes even if unsure of future plans to continue with paramedic level training. Although students do not earn an Odessa College certificate at this level, successful completers can become certified through the credentialing agency. Skills include: CPR, bandaging and splinting, traction splints, mechanical aids to breathing (oxygen, bag-mask, suctioning, oral and nasal airways, and pocket masks), patient assessment, vital signs, spinal immobilization, automated external defibrillation, pneumatic anti-shock garment, epinephrine auto-injector, and nebulizer bronchodilators. Certification requirements: Minimum age 18; high school diploma or GED; EMT-Basic skills proficiency verification by training program; stateadministered National Registry certification exam; and submission of EMS Personnel Certification Application and fee. With department approval and certification as a DSHS EMT-Basic provider, students can continue with paramedic level training. Odessa College includes intermediate and advanced skills in the paramedic curriculum. Skills include: EMT-Intermediate skills, medication administration, EKG interpretation, cardioversion, and cardiac arrest simulation (megacode). Certification requirements: Minimum age 18; high school diploma or GED; DSHS EMT- Basic, Intermediate and Paramedic skills proficiency verification by training program medical director; and written and practical exam administered by National Registry. A licensed paramedic has an associate s degree (or higher) and tests on the same skills for EMT- Paramedic. Once a student successfully completes requirements for the National Registry, he or she may become certified by the Texas Department of State Health Services EMS Division. Both levels of certification require periodic and specific recertification hours and activities to continue to practice as an emergency medical technician. Students considering registering for emergency medical services professional (EMSP) courses must have approval from the EMS department before enrolling. Enrollment in paramedic level EMSP courses is limited, and students are urged to contact the department early to ensure acceptance to the program. Applicants, or those seeking additional information, should contact the EMS department or a Student Success Coach in the Help Center. The student must purchase required equipment and supplies in order to participate in laboratory and clinical/practicum training. To obtain a list of the necessary equipment, the student should contact the department director or one of the faculty members before enrolling in the class. Back to ToC 146

2 Students enrolled in any EMSP practicum or clinical course are required to have liability insurance as well as health and accident insurance each semester. Liability insurance is included in course fees. If the student does not have a health and accident policy, student health insurance can be purchased. Students must have a health check-up and pass a background check and a drug screen to participate in the EMS program. All immunizations must be on file in the EMS department, in compliance with state regulations, before the student can participate in clinical or practicum courses.
