'EMT Paramedic Training' In California Information is Now Available for Prospective Students to See.

(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 11, 2012 ) Clarkston, Washington -- According to the United States Department of Labor, Employment of Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and EMT paramedics is expected to grow by 19 percent between 2006 and 2016, which is faster than the average for all occupations. Regardless of the current economic challenges for jobs and employment, pursing EMT and EMT paramedic certification is a worthy career path.

California has one of the largest EMT/EMS services in the entire country and the state is continually hiring certified EMT personnel. EMT training and EMT paramedic training, licensing, and certification in the state of California are governed by the Emergency Medical Services Authority or EMSA. This state bureau has the responsibility of managing the entire EMS system for the state of California.

Both EMTs and EMT paramedics must complete a CA EMT training program that is state accredited in order to be certified. California EMT training alone is not sufficient; it requires a state accredited program or courses. The state of California and the EMSA also require the individual who has completed EMT training to pass the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) exam and recognizes the exam certification if taken in other states.
California EMT training applicants who wish to take the EMT certification test are first required to have 110 hours of EMT training instructional study, and another 10 hours of medical training studies. Paramedic training in California requires a minimum of 1,090 hours for training.

It is becoming increasingly difficult for emergency medical services to recruit and retain unpaid volunteers because of the amount of EMT training and EMT paramedic training, and the large time commitment these positions require. Not to mention liability. As a result, more paid EMTs and paramedics are needed. Furthermore, as a large segment of the population—aging members of the baby boom generation—becomes more likely to have medical emergencies, demand will increase for EMTs and paramedics. There will still be demand for part-time, volunteer EMTs and paramedics in rural areas and smaller metropolitan areas.

Job prospects for EMTs and paramedics should be very favorable and job opportunities should be best in private ambulance services. Competition will be greater for jobs in local government, including fire, police, and independent third-service rescue squad departments, which tend to have better salaries and benefits. EMTs and paramedics who have advanced EMT training education and paramedic training, such as Paramedic level certification, should enjoy the most favorable job prospects, as employees and patients demand higher levels of care before arriving at the hospital.

Utah mother sentenced to 15 years to life for murdering six newborns
20 Apr 2015 at 5:16pm

A Utah mother who pleaded guilty to murdering six of her newborn infants over the course of a decade was sentenced on Monday to 15 years to life in prison. Megan Huntsman, 40, confessed to suffocating or strangling the babies while she was suffering from methamphetamine and alcohol addiction, according to police. The six infants' remains were found in April 2014 wrapped in old towels, shirts and plastic bags inside boxes in the garage in Pleasant Grove, about 40 miles north of Provo. The case of serial infanticide came to light when Huntsman's estranged husband, Darren West, later confirmed by DNA tests to have fathered all of the victims, stumbled on one of the tiny bodies while cleaning out the garage and notified authorities.



Mind training as effective as anti-depressants
20 Apr 2015 at 4:58pm

A form of mental training which helps people recognise the onset of depression, and control it, works as well as anti-depressants in preventing relapse, researchers said Monday. Dubbed Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), the method may offer a welcome alternative for people wishing to avoid long-term use of anti-depressants, which can have unpleasant side effects like insomnia, constipation and sexual problems, said a study in The Lancet medical journal. In a two-year trial with 424 depression sufferers in England, researchers found that MBCT users faced a "similar" risk of relapse to those on anti-depressants. The method was not more effective than drugs, as many had hoped, but the findings nevertheless suggested "a new choice for the millions of people with recurrent depression on repeat prescriptions," said study leader Willem Kuyken, a professor of clinical psychology at the University of Oxford.


Iowa reports biggest U.S. outbreak of bird flu in poultry
20 Apr 2015 at 4:50pm
By Tom Polansek CHICAGO (Reuters) - Iowa, the top U.S. egg-producing state, found a lethal strain of bird flu in millions of hens at an egg-laying facility on Monday, the worst case so far in a national outbreak that prompted Wisconsin to declare a state of emergency. The infected Iowa birds were being raised near the city of Harris by Sunrise Farms, an affiliate of Sonstegard Foods Company, the company said. The flock has been quarantined, and birds on the property will be culled to prevent the spread of the disease, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said. The Agriculture Department said the Iowa flock numbered 5.3 million birds.


Prognosis unclear for daughter of late singer Whitney Houston: lawyer
20 Apr 2015 at 4:32pm

(Reuters) - Bobbi Kristina Brown is expected to live a long life, but her prognosis remains unclear, an attorney for her father Bobby Brown said on Monday, clarifying the singer?s remarks at a weekend concert that she was awake months after being found unresponsive in her bathtub. She's watching me," Brown told concert-goers at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Texas, according to a video posted on the website TMZ. "However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come." Bobby Brown's wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, noted in the statement that her husband was "in an emotional state" when he spoke at the concert on Saturday. "He is encouraged by the steps that Bobbi Kristina has made since her hospitalization," she said.


Lawmakers seek FDA review of ingredients used in cosmetics
20 Apr 2015 at 4:19pm
WASHINGTON (AP) ? Two U.S. senators introduced legislation Monday that would require the Food and Drug Administration to evaluate and report on some of the ingredients used in cosmetics and personal-care products such as shampoo and skin cream.

New U.S. mammogram guidelines stick with screening from age 50
20 Apr 2015 at 4:10pm
By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - New mammogram screening guidelines from an influential panel of U.S. experts reaffirm earlier guidance that breast cancer screening should begin at age 50 for most women, but they acknowledge that women in their 40s also benefit, something experts say is a step in the right direction. "They made it really clear this time around, unlike 2009, that the discussion between a woman and a clinician about breast cancer screening should begin at 40," said Dr. Richard Wender, chief cancer control officer at the American Cancer Society. The Department of Health and Human Services provided for mammogram coverage for women age 40 to 49 after the health panel made its recommendation in 2009. The department said on Monday that the guidelines are only in draft form and that nothing has changed regarding access to mammograms or other preventive services.    Critics stressed that keeping 50 as the starting age for screening ? a change first introduced by the panel six years ago - could threaten insurance coverage for millions of women age 40 to 49.     "If this becomes the final guideline, coverage of mammograms would no longer be mandated under the ACA," said Wender.

Mindfulness therapy as good as medication for chronic depression - study
20 Apr 2015 at 4:07pm
By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) may be just as effective as anti-depressants in helping prevent people with chronic depression from relapsing, scientists said on Tuesday. Depression is one of the most common forms of mental illness, affecting more than 350 million people worldwide. It is ranked by the World Health Organization as the leading cause of disability globally. Treatment usually involves either medication, some form of psychotherapy or a combination of both.


Type, frequency of e-cigarette use linked to quitting smoking
20 Apr 2015 at 4:03pm

By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - Two new studies looking at whether electronic cigarettes help smokers to quit their deadly habit have found that while some of them can, it depends on the type and how often it is used. Many experts think e-cigarettes, which heat nicotine-laced liquid into an inhalable vapor, are a lower-risk alternative to smoking, but questions remain about their use and safety. The charity Action on Smoking and Health says more than 2 million adults in Britain use e-cigarettes. So-called "cigalike" e-cigarettes are disposable or use replaceable cartridges, while "tank" models look quite different and have refillable containers of nicotine "e-liquid".

Florida governor, state employees end drug testing dispute
20 Apr 2015 at 3:40pm
By David Adams MIAMI, (Reuters) - Florida Governor Rick Scott and the state's largest union of public employees agreed to end a long-running dispute over the broad use of random drug testing of state workers, according to a court filing on Monday. If approved by a federal judge, the agreement would end the court battle over Scott's 2011 executive order requiring state employees to submit to mandatory urinalysis drug testing without suspicion of wrongdoing. The order was aimed at state workers in agencies under the governor's authority, accounting for about 77 percent of the state workforce. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Florida, on behalf of AFSCME Council 79, the state's largest union of public employees, said the order violated the U.S. Constitution's Fourth Amendment, which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures.

Indiana governor extends needle program to fight HIV
20 Apr 2015 at 2:54pm

By Steve Bittenbender LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Reuters) - The governor of Indiana on Monday said he would extend an emergency health order, including a needle exchange, in response to an HIV outbreak caused by intravenous drug abuse which has reached 134 confirmed and preliminary cases. The outbreak, centered in rural Scott County near the border with Kentucky, is up from 106 cases 10 days ago, health officials said. The outbreak is the biggest in the state's history - typically, Scott County has fewer than five new HIV cases in a year.

Novartis solid tumor 'CAR T cell' still holds promise: researcher
20 Apr 2015 at 2:48pm

A new type of immuno-oncology treatment from Novartis AG proved safe in a tiny study of three types of solid tumors, but the trial included too few patients and used too small a dose of the experimental product to prove effectiveness, according to data presented at a cancer meeting on Sunday. The so-called CAR T cell is among a wave of new cancer treatments created by removing T cells, powerful immune system cells, from a patient's body and attaching an antibody fragment that enables them to recognize and target specific proteins on cancer cells. In clinical trials by Novartis and other drugmakers, CAR T cells have proven highly effective and relatively safe against blood cancers, such as leukemias and lymphomas. The new Novartis-sponsored study, conducted by scientists at the University of Pennsylvania and presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, enrolled six patients who had failed to benefit from standard treatments for ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer or mesothelioma (a cancer in the protective lining covering many of the body's internal organs).


Fog blamed for fiery Wyoming traffic pileup that killed one
20 Apr 2015 at 2:07pm
(Reuters) - Dense fog and slush are blamed for a massive Wyoming traffic pileup on Monday that killed one person and injured dozens, ignited a 22,000-gallon tanker containing a hazardous chemical, and closed part of a federal highway, authorities said. The pileup on U.S. Interstate 80 west of Laramie began about 8 a.m. when two semi-trailers collided, causing one to jackknife in both lanes of a roadway that serves as the main east-west artery across the southern part of the state, the Wyoming Highway Patrol reported. Between 21 and 40 cars and trucks were involved in the pileup, and heavy fog and light slush contributed to the crash, Wyoming Highway Patrol Sergeant David Wagener said in a statement. It was the fourth such pileup in less than a week on the 50-mile stretch of I-80 between Laramie and the capital city of Cheyenne in the southeast corner of the state.
