EMTP 120 Human Systems and Patient Assessment (5)
Lec-96, (total hrs.)
Credit, Degree Applicable
This course reviews the fundamentals of human anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology and the language and terminology of medicine. Each organ system will be reviewed along with clinical case studies related to dysfunction of the various organ systems. Emphasis will be placed on application of physiology and pathophysiology to the assessment of patients with various emergency medical conditions and the documentation and reporting skills used in the delivery of emergency medical care.
Formerly EMTP 100.
