'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.

EU should halve meat, dairy consumption to cut nitrogen-report
24 Apr 2014 at 4:10pm
By Nina Chestney LONDON (Reuters) - People in the European Union, who according to a United Nations body eat way more protein than necessary, could prompt big cuts in nitrogen pollution if they halved their meat and dairy consumption, a U.N.-backed report said on Friday. Nitrogen is used in fertilizer to replace nutrients which are removed by soils during plant growth but excess nitrogen can harm the environment by polluting water, air and soil. That represents around 80 percent of nitrogen emissions from all sources, said the study by the United Nations' Economic Commission for Europe's (UNECE) Task Force on Reactive Nitrogen. "If all people within the EU would halve their meat and dairy consumption, this would reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture by 25 to 40 percent, and nitrogen emissions by 40 percent," lead author Henk Westhoek, program manager for Agriculture and Food at the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, said in a statement.

'Vapers' relieved FDA won't restrict popular e-cigarette flavors
24 Apr 2014 at 3:28pm

Mcshalonic Martinez, 25, puffed on a caramel mochachino flavored e-cigarette at the Henley Vaporium in lower Manhattan, saying the device helped him kick his three-pack-a-day smoking habit. He can't imagine going back to traditional cigarettes. It does not recommend restricting flavored products or online sales and advertising, which public health advocates say make the products more attractive for children and teens. The announcement comes on the heels of a New York City law passed last year that banned e-cigarette usage anywhere that traditional cigarettes are prohibited.


Caregivers Are Key In Protecting Kids' Dental Health
24 Apr 2014 at 3:24pm
By Kathryn Doyle NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Many kids on Medicaid are not receiving dental care, and those who do often first show up with a dental emergency, according to a new study. Less than half of a group of four-year-olds the researchers followed had ever visited a dentist, and caregivers who neglected their own oral health tended to neglect that of their children too. "We know that both good oral health and dental problems tend to cluster and co-occur in families," said Kimon Divaris, who led the study at the UNC School of Dentistry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Utah sperm swap 'unacceptable' but still unexplained -university docs
24 Apr 2014 at 3:23pm
A University of Utah committee investigating reports that a Salt Lake City fertility clinic worker artificially inseminated a patient with his own sperm called the action "unacceptable" on Thursday, but said it could not determine whether the switch was intentional. Practices at two now-closed Salt Lake-area clinics came into question last year when Pamela Branum, who was artificially inseminated at Reproductive Medical Technologies Inc, claimed genetic testing revealed that, instead of her husband, a lab technician had fathered their daughter in the early 1990s. The technician, Tom Lippert, has since died. He was also a registered sperm donor at the clinics and frequently supplied samples.

Behavior therapy works over short term for young kids with OCD
24 Apr 2014 at 2:27pm
By Andrew M. Seaman NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - A family-based cognitive behavioral therapy markedly improves symptoms in children as young as five years old with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), according to a new study. The behavioral treatment, which involved parents heavily and is already known to work for older kids and teens, left almost three quarters of the young children significantly better off, according to objective measurements. "I really think that the results highlight this family-based cognitive behavior therapy model as the first-line treatment for children with OCD," Jennifer Freeman, the study's lead author, told Reuters Health. People with OCD have a set of compulsions - feeling compelled to do something - that cause them distress or disrupt their daily lives.

In fight with opiate overdoses, N.J. county issues antidote to police
24 Apr 2014 at 2:24pm
Police in coastal Ocean County in New Jersey, faced with a doubling in deaths from drug overdoses in the past year, have issued all police officers an anti-opiate drug in a pilot program aimed at combating deaths tied to painkiller addiction. Police have already saved six people from overdoses since launching early this month a test of the anti-opiate drug naloxone, which helps restore breathing in people who have overdosed on opiate drugs. "We're on a roll," said Al Della Fave, a spokesman for the county prosecutor's office, which led the effort. In almost every case, their first comment is how great it will be to do something except stand there." The county, home to about 583,000 people, saw 112 overdose deaths in 2013, more than double the 53 recorded in 2012, Della Fave said.
