HCI’s Paramedic Refresher course is important for several reason; as stated above, standards and medicine continue to grow as we are faced with new technology, so as healthcare professionals it is our duty to keep up with the times.
Paramedics are the first on scene in an emergency situation, so it’s important that we are knowledgeable and up to date on protocol. For instance, CPR guidelines are reviewed and updated every 5 years. In the past decade, there have been many changes, so chances are if you learned CPR years ago, it has changed.
As a healthcare provider, CPR certifications must be renewed every 2 years for this reason. In terms of CPR, new advances have taught medical professionals what parts are most essential to the survival of your patient. The Paramedic Refresher course is also important because you may need to be trained in new equipment. Similarly, with scientific advances, the medical field also updates their technology, providing healthcare professionals with new or additional materials that may be needed on a daily basis.
