This course is a co-requisite for the EMT-Paramedic Program, following the DOT EMT-Paramedic program guidelines. It utilizes a systemic approach, beginning by formulating a basic picture of the human body then moving into more anatomic detail. Lectures and labs discuss body systems, both how they function individually and together as a unit. In addition to the overall picture of each system, this course presents the gross anatomy and the microscopic anatomy of vital structures, with special emphasis on how these structures function in diseased states during medical emergencies encountered by the paramedic in the prehospital environment. 3 class/2 lab hours.
