The Emergency Medical Technician Basic (EMT-B) Psychomotor Skills and Assessment set includes eight psychomotor skills, eight medical assessment, and two trauma assessment scenarios that were created by HealthCare Simulation South Carolina (HCSSC) and the National Association of EMS Educators (NAEMSE). These scenarios incorporate the EMT- Basic/EMT Psychomotor Exam grading metrics (with permission) used by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) within the certification process and are intended to support standardized, quantifiable educational practice to prepare students for the certification exam. The psychomotor examination is an end of course examination administered by a state approved organization. The programmed scenarios in this set are designed for practice or during the actual examination, where allowed.
Each scenario takes full advantage of Laerdal programming capabilities. As a result, the scenarios are easily run from a well-structured menu. Debriefing logs include color-coded check marks to provide easy-to follow, objective-based debriefing guides. In addition, multimedia is embedded throughout the scenarios to provide enhanced fidelity and “just-in-time” participant feedback. At the conclusion of each scenario, the debrief log shows the number and percentage of correct steps completed.
