    I am taking my REMSA medic test next week, I know its 200 questions, anyone know what I should focus my studying on? I already feel pretty confident about it, having passed my NREMT-P in 80 questions...just looking for a little info!

    No, REMSA is Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority, in the Reno area. Sister type agency to EMSA, MEMS, RAA, MedStar, Sunstar and a few others.

    Ah! Thanks. Our agency now insists on being referred to REMSA so it's stuck in my head.

    Nope. It's been changed...It is now REMSA.

    Yeah, it was recent. Had a conversation with their staff and it has something to do with respect as an "agency" or some such thing like that...but the county has a bit of hx with such things...starting with its initial seperation from ICEMA so many moons ago...:blink:

    From what I hear it's more like a medic school final/NREMT than protocols. Also might be worth reviewing home meds and 12-lead interpretation.
