Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs)
CareFlite EMTs have the knowledge and skills necessary to stabilize and safely transport patients ranging from non-emergency and routine medical transports to life-threatening emergencies.
CareFlite Paramedics are health professionals whose primary focus is to provide advanced emergency medical care for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system. These individuals possess the complex knowledge and skills necessary for patient care and transportation.
- 2 EMTs on a ground ambulance make it Basic Life Support (BLS) capable. The main components of BLS are initial patient assessment, vital signs, basic airway management, oxygen therapy, chest compression, first aid, childbirth, and utilization of an AED. All CareFlite EMTs are trained in IM epinephrine administration (for use during anaphylaxis), and CareFlite 911 EMTs are trained to initiate IV therapy under the supervision of a paramedic.
- 1 Paramedic and 1 EMT or 2 Paramedics on a truck make it Advanced Life Support (ALS) capable. The main components of ALS include all BLS care in addition to cardiac monitoring and use of a defibrillator, administering medications, starting IVs, advanced airway interventions, and management of mechanical ventilators.
- Critical Care: Our Critical Care Paramedics (CCP) undergo an advanced internal training and credentialing process. They are also certified as Critical Care Paramedics by the International Board of Specialty Certifications. CCPs are capable of caring for patients utilizing specialty care devices such as intra-aortic balloon pumps, external ventricular drains, Impell devices, and intravenous pacing devices. In addition, our CCPs operate under advanced practice guidelines and carry over 50 medications, perform several advanced procedures, and can monitor all invasive lines such a pulmonary artery catheter. All CCPs are also Field Training Officers and providing training and clinical oversite over primary paramedics within our system.
