Emergency needs of patients are becoming more complex and demanding on Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT). Emergencies, such as car crashes, natural disasters, and acts of violence, as well as the needs of the elderly, will continue to create demands for EMTs and paramedics. The EMT provides basic life support, including patient assessment; airway management; use of the automatic defibrillator, and; assisting patients with taking some of their own medication. Additionally, the EMT must understand all applicable legal, moral, and ethical issues surrounding emergency medical service.
