ChildBirth Animation

This is a difficult concept for EMT's to learn; most have not witnessed a childbirth. The video is used to elicit discussion and critical thinking.

This animation is used as a summative video to tie together two learning modules

Human Respiration

Students with a visual learning style find this simple video a comprehensive overview or summary of the Airway module

Traction Splinting - Femur

This video will reinforce learning before or after practicing with both types of traction splint.

Circulatory System Rap

Selected especially for those who learn best with music, but also with the intent of memorization

Cardiology - Marian Diamond (Berkeley)

Highly recommended follow-up to a course lecture. Dr. Diamond explains her subject with clarity and depth.

Trauma Assessment

The slight humor at the beginning of the video set EMT testing candidates at ease prior to taking the practical exam
