Patient Assessment – Lessons

EMS Care Chapter 14 | EMT Patient Assessment starts with an introduction to the topic and has presentations on various aspects of  Scene size up and how to go about the primary and secondary assessment. We subsequently explore  in-depth the following lessons:

  • Scene Size-up and Safety.
  • Primary Assessment.
  • Secondary Assessment.

Core Concepts & Takeaways

  • Size-up the scene and determine if additional or specialized resources are required.
  • Quickly identify and protect oneself from violent or hazardous situations.
  • Assess the patient to understand the problem, so appropriate care can be given.
