These Static Cardiology Scripts are designed to be used as scripts for the paramedic static cardiology station in the final phase of testing. They can also be used as guidelines for the dynamic cardiology station, as well as tools to use in scenarios and in class. For many paramedic students, the static cardiology station is one of the most intimidating and, unfortunately, easy to fail stations on testing day, a day which is already filled with anxiety, stress, and fear.
These scripts, based on nationally-accepted cardiac algorithms, will reinforce the information you already know and allow you to take advantage of your long-term memory, rather than just your short-term. The less you have to think about what comes next, the better. The aim should be to rattle off these scripts with ease, efficiency and speed. Feeling confident with these scripts will mean one less thing to worry about on test day!
- Repetitive, consistent wording and formatting to make memorizing easier and faster
- Color-coding to re-enforce similarities and draw attention to differences
- Six separate algorithm-based scripts for the different rhythms, with multiple pathways based on patient presentation
- A full page of instructions, tips, and tricks to make memorizing simple and efficient
Only one script is visible here, to show an example of the formatting. These scripts are a digital product ONLY and will be emailed to you as a PDF. If you need them to be printed and physically mailed to you, please use the Contact Me form to put in a request!
PLEASE NOTE: These scripts are based on Vermont 2018 protocols. Please reference your state/district/national protocols before beginning, to ensure that the procedures and doses are accurate in your area. If there are discrepancies, make sure to correct them immediately to avoid confusion later on.
Also, these are NOT designed to be followed in real patient contacts. They are for testing and educational purposes ONLY. Please follow your local protocols when treating patients.
