As a paramedic my duties included initiating a “work up” on a patient, whether a pediatric patient or an adult patient. I start intravenous lines, draw blood, analyze the blood through our STAT diagnostic machines, I obtain urine for a urinalysis, step tests, and perform 12-lead EKG’s. When the patient is stabilized we transport the patient to the floor or unit Another aspect of my duties include bandaging and splinting pediatric patients and adult patients. That includes de-breeding the wound, and developing a strategy to isolate the wound from contamination. I have become proficient in splinting patients. Splinting includes knowing how to properly align the patient’s limbs and joints while the ortho-glass sets in and hardens to air. The positions we splint patients in are posterior, short, long- posterior, sugar-tong, ulnar gutter, thumb spica, aluminum finger, and finally an above or below the knee stirrup.
Triage is another place that I have experience in. This includes pediatric care. We observe patients that are in distress as a level 1-5 and assist the nursing staff in deciding appropriate triage designations. Pediatric psychiatric cases are robust in our emergency room along with trauma, and common viral, congenital, and cancerous diseases
