Well, we are on the home stretch. On one hand, it’s hard to believe it’s almost May. On the other hand, it may seem like May was never going to get here, as quarantine days blend into more quarantine days.
Anyway, hopefully you were pleased with your 4th quarter progress grades. Those of you who have chosen to continue learning and completing assignments have seen a definite improvement in your grades. Keep up the good work! This week we will complete two more chapters in the EMR textbook. Read and answer the “You are the Emergency Medical Responder” prompts at the beginning and end of each lesson. Chapter 18 is “Shock” an is pages 418-424. Chapter 19 is “Bleeding and Trauma” and is pages425-438. Below is the link for the EMR e-textbook:
I sincerely miss each and every one of you and can’t wait for this crazy pandemic to be over. I’m sure you and your families all feel the same. In the meantime, stay safe and stay healthy!
First of all, I want to congratulate those of you who have chosen to continue learning in sports Med lab. You have completed six EMR lessons and produced quality assignments that are thoughtful with answers that are well written. I commend your efforts!
This week we will complete two more EMR lessons. Read chapters 16 (“Environmental Emergencies”, pages 372-396) and 17 (“Behavioral Emergencies”, pages 404-416). Read through the material and answer the “You are the Emergency Medical Responder” prompts at the beginning and end of each chapter. Email me your completed bell work when finished. Below is the link to the EMR e-textbook.
Thanks and as always, stay safe and healthy!
As you know, TUSD is allowing students and parents to choose to accept 3rd quarter grades as semester grades for the final spring semester grade. I hope you will choose to continue completing the EMR assignments I post here because doing so can only help, not hinder your semester grade and it may give you an opportunity to receive EMR certification from the American Red Cross. That certification will depend on your completion of the assignments, your ability to pass the certification exam and your willingness to demonstrate hands-on skills such as CPR chest compressions and using an AED for the CPR portion, and skills like applying splints and using a tourniquet for the first aid portion once the Covid 19 quarantine is lifted. For those of you who choose to complete the EMR lesson assignments and wish to qualify for certification, I will schedule a time next fall with you for demonstrating the skills and taking the certification exams.
For this week’s lesson assignments, please read Chapter 14 “Medical Emergencies” which begins on page 428 and Chapter 15 “Poisoning” which begins on page 442. Respond to the “You are the Emergency Medical Responder” prompts at the beginning and end of each lesson and email your written responses to me for bell work. Below is the link for the EMR e-textbook.
Hope you all had a blessed Easter with your families. Stay safe and stay healthy!
First I want to say great job completing last week’s bell work assignments! I have received most of your assignments by email, so thanks for staying on top of reading through the EMR e-textbook chapters and answering the “you are the Emergency Medical Responder” prompts. This week we will have you complete two more lessons and bell works. They are Chapter 12, “Emergency Oxygen” which begins on page 277 and chapter 13, “Circulation and Cardiac Emergencies” which starts on page 290. Read through the text and answer the “you are the EMR” prompts at the beginning and end of the lesson.
Thanks for staying diligent and here’s hoping you all are staying safe and healthy!
