REQUIRED TEXTS/RESOURCES:
      American Red Cross Responding to Emergencies, 2012
      American Red Cross CPR for the Professional Rescuer, 2011

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
     A one semester course intended to provide the citizen responder
     with the knowledge and skills necessary in an emergency to
     help sustain life and minimize pain or sudden illness until medical
     help arrives. Included in this course are rescue breathing, relief of
     obstructed airway, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation(CPR)for the
     adult, child, and infant; medical emergencies, wounds and
     bandaging, fractures with splinting, moving injured victims and
     emergency child birth. Cost of the certification is negotiated yearly.
     Students must have a 2.5 GPA to enroll in this course

COURSE OBJECTIVES:
  1. At the completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  2. Explain how the EMS works and the citizen responder’s role in the EMS system.
  3. Identify the signs and symptoms of breathing emergencies, and demonstrate how to
      provide rescue breathing and first aid for choking.
  4. Identify the major risk factors for cardiovascular disease and describe how to minimize
      them.
  5. Identify the signs and symptoms of a possible heart attack, and describe how to care for
      someone who is experiencing persistent chest pain.
  6. Identify the signs of cardiac arrest and demonstrate how to perform CPR until emergency
      medical help arrives.
  7. Identify life threatening bleeding and demonstrate how to control it.
  8. Identify signs and symptoms of shock and describe how to minimize its effects.
  9. Identify the signs and symptoms of soft tissue injuries and
      musculoskeletal injuries, and demonstrate how to care for them.
  10. Identify the signs and symptoms of sudden illness, including poisoning, bits and stings
      and heat and cold emergencies and describe how to care for them.
  11. Describe when and how to move a victim in an emergency situation

ATTENDANCE & EVALUATION:
     The student is responsible for his/her attendance in class. Students are to sign in each
     day. It is strongly suggested that the student not miss more than 2 classes. Lectures
        and demonstrations CANNOT be made up. Missing three(3) classes will result in
        lowering the grade and NO certification. Random quizzes may be given at the discretion
        of the instructor to verify reading comprehension. Quiz scores may be used to bolster the
        student’s grade. Your final grade will be based on skill testing(pass/fail), pop quizzes,
        and the written Red Cross examination. All skills testing must have 100% to pass. Each
        written exam must be passed with 80% or better to obtain certification. If a student is
        absent from class on exam day, he/she has 3 days from day of return in which to make
        up exam.

                       77-78          =       C       2.0
                       74-76          =       C-      1.6
                       72-73          =       D+      1.2
                       70-71          =       D       1.0

Academic Honesty: the importance of reinforcing academic honesty cannot be stressed
enough. An Academic Honesty Code is used by students and faculty to promote an atmosphere
of integrity and honesty.

Examples of academic dishonesty that would require review by an Academic Honor Board are:
      1. Taking an exam for another student.
      2. Forging or altering an official.
      3. Paying someone to write a paper to submit under your name.
      4. Copy ( with or without another person’s knowledge and claiming it as your own
           work.)
      5. Including items on a list of references that were not used.
      6. Doing assignments for someone else.
      7. Obtaining a copy of a test before it is given.
      8. Working with other students on an assignment when not expressly told to do so.
      9. Cheating: intentionally using unauthorized material, information, or study aids in any
           work submitted for credit
      10. Fabrications: intentional and unauthorized falsification or invention of any information
           or citation
      11. Plagiarism: deliberate use of ideas, words, or statements of another person as your
           own without acknowledgment being given.
      12. Facilitation: knowingly helping someone else do any of the above.

Students with Disabilities: If you require special assistance to accommodate a disability,
please see me immediately so appropriate adaptations to the class may be made.


Addendum to Syllabus:
Students may choose to enroll in USI’s College Achievement Program, CAP, to earn college
credit for PED 282, First Aid Responding to Emergencies, from USI at a reduced rate of tuition
($80 per credit hour or $160 total). Students who are eligible for free or reduced lunch this
academic year may enroll at no charge by indicating eligibility on the application in question #14.

PED 282 is a two credit hour course that is highly transferable. To enroll in CAP., students
should have at least a 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale and submit the completed application to the
instructor on or before the given deadline. USI will bill student at their home; no money should be
submitted to the high school. College credit can only be earned during the semester (or, in the
case of year-long courses, during the academic year) in which the student is enrolled. No
paperwork will be accepted after the last meeting day of the class.

Whether college credit earned through dual or concurrent credit courses will be accepted by
another institution of higher education is determined by the college or university to which a
student is seeking admission. Each college/university evaluates transfer courses based upon
their specific curriculum requirements and the student’s intended major. From time to time
curriculum requirements change which means the acceptance of transfer courses may change.
A student wanting to transfer credit to a specific college or university should check directly with
that institution (their registrar’s office, office of admissions, or academic school of a student’s
intended major) to determine if a course will be accepted and how it will be counted toward
graduation requirements.
Students who plan to attend a public Indiana institution can visit the Core Transfer Library, or
CTL, (http://www.transferin.net/CTL.aspx) to see how various USI/CAP classes will transfer
around the state. Although PED 282 is not part of the CTL, it still has a high likelihood of
transferring to many public and private institutions.

In most cases, students will need to earn a C or better to transfer credit from USI to another
institution. Grades of D or lower earned in CAP courses are recorded on the student’s USI
transcript but may not be able to transfer.

It is the student’s responsibility to determine transferability of USI credits before enrolling
in CAP courses. Refunds will not be issued if USI credits are not able to be transferred
