ABSTRACT

This study aims to analyze rate of implementation of basic and paramedic emergency care and the aspects of emergency care by EMT-Paramedics. For the study methods for this purpose, comparison groups for rural and urban models of each centers were selected to analyze the administration of the paramedics emergency care. And opinions of EMT-Paramedics on paramedics emergency care were collected through a survey and proposed obstacles and items for improvements in the paramedic emergency care. The statistical analysis on emergency activity by selecting rural and urban model showed that the rate of administration for basic emergency care was high in both models, whereas paramedic emergency care was very poor both models. According to the survey analysis of emergency medical technicians, they proposed that when transporting the patients within the short distance of 20 minutes of EMS activity time, quick transport to the hospital is required after basic emergency care. In the next study, our purpose was to analyze the obstacles to the paramedics emergency care and propose solutions for improvement through analysis of survey. First of all, many technicians appealed about the shortage of emergency technicians who can perform emergency care in the ambulance vehicle for two people including the driver and the legal limitations of the EMT-Paramedic's sphere of work and administration of basic emergency care. To improve the current situation, proposals have been made in the order of : placement of three qualified person(s) per ambulance vehicle, legal reformation of EMT-Paramedics' sphere of work, improvement of emergency care performance through participation in professional education, necessity of indirect medical control based on service guidance and stimulation of direct medical control and improvement in the awareness on emergency care for emergency medical technicians.
