Objectives

 

This continuing education topic goes over the basics of allergic reactions and the progression to anaphylaxis. It also discusses common allergens and treatment.

At the end of this lesson, students should be able to discuss appropriate signs, symptoms, and treatment for a patient having an anaphylactic reaction.

Exams

 

For CE courses there is no exam. Once the student views the course content, they must complete the "objectives learned assignment" and conduct a course evaluation.

Additional Training

EMTs require constant training and continuing education.

While online training can assist in an EMT's training, receiving hands-on training is also important.

Training Providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment an employer's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training that is supplied by their own company. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.

Mobile Pros and Cons

Mobile versions of this sort of training are new, but below are some Pros and Cons that we have noticed during our extensive testing.

Pros

  • No computer needed
  • Tablet mobility
  • Tablet screen graphics

Cons

  • Smartphone screens can be too small to see
  • Mobile browsers react differently than computer browsers
  • Phone calls can interrupt training

During our testing we noticed that tablets work much better than smartphones, simply due to their screen size. The newer the device, the better the result. We are also aware that the course will not work on the first generation iPad, nor older Android Tablets.
