The scenarios available on this CD-ROM are designed to help First Responder, EMT-Basic, and Paramedic instructors by providing detailed case studies to practice and test with.  Integrating scenarios into the classroom allows instructors to reinforce the didactic curriculum with hands on practicum. Research indicates that 80% of what is learned by the “hands on” method is retained. 

BLS and ALS skills scenarios for all skills in the National Registry are included.

  • "Just a quick note to say thank you for publishing the EMS Scenarios CD-ROM. It is awesome! We were able to receive it as we began teaching patient assessment to our paramedic class.  We have been looking for some up-to-date patient scenarios that have a variety of patient care experiences.  The scenarios can be used as either stand alone from start to finish without prompting, or use the Q&A as teaching points.  This is an invaluable resource!"
