    Differential Diagnosis - How do I study for it?

    I did not know that. I thought I was following the advice of the people on this forum to focus on cardiovascular/respiratory/nervous system. It is not something I particularly wanted to learn. I thought that is what I had started to do with the heart. I did not seek to learn ECG. It was just...

    Differential Diagnosis - How do I study for it?

    Thanks, that is very kind of you to say and I appreciate it. I am not a very academic person and I struggle in formal education settings (not speculation - I have the academic transcript to prove it). It is likely that when my course starts I will struggle a lot with procrastination. I tend to...

    Differential Diagnosis - How do I study for it?

    Didn't quite understand? You mean my spelling was bad? I am sure it will improve over time. I typed my posts out quickly. Also, what is a long hose job? Why do you think so?

    Differential Diagnosis - How do I study for it?

    Okay, I suspect that I am confusing what I am trying to achieve with differential diagnosis. Really I am just trying to make a game that I can use to help me study medical conditions and get used to asking OPQRST and SAMPLE questions. I understand from responses so far that once I become a...

    Differential Diagnosis - How do I study for it?

    Yea, I am absolutely grateful for the advice and I have taken notes of what people have told me. Unfortunately, I have already memorised the snakebite stuff so it is too late to not learn it. In all honesty, I actually found the snakebit stuff interesting. Even though it will never be of use...

    Differential Diagnosis - How do I study for it?

    Thanks for your advice, I have completed my first aid requirements for the course. I have learned this already - still a bit to go with the more advanced aspects of cardiovascular and respiratory stuff. I learned this. I can name the two atria and ventricles of the heart, the two layers of...

    Differential Diagnosis - How do I study for it?

    The course has not started yet so there is no way to get on to it sooner. It starts in May. Surely it is better to do some study now before the course starts. I have actually been able to find a lot of course work online already - there are youtube playlists that cover EMT training (for the US)...

    Differential Diagnosis - How do I study for it?

    No formal training, not an EMT or anything. I am going to begin training in a couple of months. I have been self learning. Are you saying at this stage I am doing GCS (for mental status?), and listening to breathing via a stethoscope for the respiratory effort? Checking pulse seems straight...

    EMTs and Paramedics: What would you change?

    I am not an EMT/Paramedic/Firefighter so I might be a bit ignorant. But are you saying that paramedics who work for fire departments are poorly trained? I thought the EMT qualifications were uniform across the board and Fire Service EMTs drive ambulances - it just so happens that the fire...

    Differential Diagnosis - How do I study for it?

    Hi team, I am waiting for training to begin so at the moment I am technically not even a student. However, I am fascinated by Paramedicine and have been studying it in my spare time. I understand general anatomy and physiology terms/directions as well as some of the anatomy of the...
