A site for EMT-b practice scenarios
April 6, 2016 6:59 PM   Subscribe

Can anyone recommend a place to find well outlined EMT-b test scenarios for practice purposes? I have a number of people who are current EMT's who I am trying to help prepare for testing for NREMT, and looking for scenarios for Oral Stations as well as the Medical and Trauma assessment. Something without a lot of plot and character development is preferable to too much story. Pt condition, vitals, secondary vitals, the basics to fill out a run sheet and make a field diagnosis. Thanks

The method that worked for me on my NREMT-P exam was to look at calls I was already running at my job and during my medic internship with an eye toward the skill sheet for the relevant skill stations. Here is the NREMT site where you can download those. (Side note: does NREMT-B have true oral stations like the NREMT-P? I didn't see them there.)

That was the best way for me to prepare for a real diversity of scenarios, but I understand this only worked because I had a strong background in 911 EMS and was working during school, etc. This may not be the case for your students. With that in mind:

This pdf has some sample medical scenarios on pages 14 to 17 and a brief trauma scenario on page 12. The rest of the text is outdated, including the scoring, so disregard most of it, but the scenarios look good.

Here (another pdf) are some more, but they include some EMT-I level things so you will have to tailor them a little to the EMT-B scope of assessment and treatment.

Ultimately I don't think there is a comprehensive free resource for this, other than the brains and imaginations of experienced providers. I could be wrong--my Google-fu is weak coming off a night shift rotation! But it looks like you may have the most luck with something like this book, which I know a few of my medic classmates used to good effect.

If you want, shoot me a MeFi mail and I can come up with some scenarios on the fly and send them your way over the weekend.

Good luck to your students!
