COURSE DESCRIPTION:
In this course the student will learn to identify, assess, and manage illnesses and injuries
involving the following body systems:
        Respiratory
        Cardiovascular
        Endocrine
        Genitourinary
        Reproductive
Within the body systems, specific attention is given to the following topics:
        Acute Abdomen
        Anaphylaxis
        Toxicology
        Alcoholism and Drug Abuse
        Infectious Diseases
        Environmental Concerns
        OB/GYN
        Behavioral
Although this class covers the entire lifespan, special attention will be given to the geriatric and
pediatric populations.
During this course students will also take the American Heart Association Advanced Cardiac
Life Support Provider Course. Successful affirmation as a provider in this class is a requirement
for completing this course.

FEES:
There is a $150.00 lab fee for this course.


METHOD OF INSTRUCTION:
A variety of instructional methods may be used depending on content area. These include but are
not limited to: lecture, multimedia, cooperative/collaborative learning, labs and demonstrations,
projects and presentations, speeches, debates, and panels, conferencing, performances, and
learning experiences outside the classroom. Methodology will be selected to best meet student
needs.

Online Sections: Online courses rely on the use of the Internet and a course management system
for content delivery. Courses are accessible both on campus and from most remote sites.
Specific information regarding computer skills and system requirements can be found at
http://www.kckcc.edu/online/index.html

Honors Sections: An honors section of this course provides a non-traditional environment for
learning that incorporates active student participation, critical reflection, use of primary sources
and innovative teaching methods. Classes are designated as honors on the transcript. Enrollment
in the honors section of this class requires the permission of the Director of Honors Education

Telecourse Sections: The telecourse section of this course combines classroom instruction, 30
half-hours of video viewing and outside independent work. Classroom seat time is reduced due
to the more rigorous study required outside the classroom along with the video viewing time.
Videos can be checked out from the KCKCC library or can be viewed on Cable Channel 17.

Computer Assisted Sections: A computer assisted section utilizes software developed by
Academic Systems, a division of Plato Learning, Inc. These sections are structured and student
centered. The computer provides lectures with the instructor available for one on one instruction
and small group work as needed to facilitate student learning. The CD’s included with the
textbook allow the system to be accessed from home if computers meet the minimum system
requirements.

ASSESSMENT OF LEARNER OUTCOMES:
In order for an MICT student to provide optimum emergency care to patients, it is necessary for
the student to possess an understanding of the fundamentals of the profession, rationale and
philosophy of emergency mobile intensive care technician techniques.

Examinations provide feedback to both the instructor and student on the ability of the student to
understand the material presented.

Weekly quizzes will be given. Every Monday and Tuesday students can anticipate a quiz over the
material covered from the previous week’s class sessions. These weekly quizzes will not be
given on the Mondays and Tuesdays when a more comprehensive exam is scheduled.

Written exams and a Final examination will also be given (See course outline for scheduled
dates). All exams will be comprehensive. Students must pass the final examination with at least
an 80% score. If the final exam is failed, the student will be allowed to take an equivalent exam.
 The repeat exam will be pass/ fail with a maximum grade of 80% used to compute the student’s
course grade. If the student fails to score at least 80% on the retake exam, the student will
receive a failing grade for the class.
All missed quizzes and exams must be taken within five (5) working days of the original exam or
quiz. If the student must miss a scheduled major exam, every attempt should be made to notify
the instructor in advance of the exam date.

GRADING POLICY:
A student’s grade in the course will be determined based on the student’s scores on the quizzes
and examinations. Points are distributed in the following manner:

               Quizzes                        20%
               Classwork/Homework             15%
               Exams                          45%
               Final Exam                     20%

Grades will be awarded according the following scale, based on the total available points for the
course:

               94.00 - 100% + pass practical skills =        A
               86.00 – 93.99% + pass practical skills =      B
               80.00 –85.99% + pass practical skills =       C
               70.00 – 79.99% + pass practical skills =      D
               69.99% or less or fail practical skills =     F
