Quiz: How Good Is Your EMT Vocabulary?

In any job in the world, you're going to need to get to know the tools and the terms of the trade. Being an EMT is no different, and, in fact, it's likely got more lingo, jargon and vocabulary to nail down than most professions. Jut think about it — have you ever heard a group of medical professionals taking on the job? Half of the terms they use fly right over your head if you've never heard them before because nearly everything they discuss is specialized. EMTs have to understand several hundred terms that they're likely to use in their day to day lives, and those terms are just as important as the knowledge they need to save lives. After all, without communication, it's hard to coordinate your medical treatment, right? Everything from CPR to pulse oximetry to supraventricular tachycardia are all terms an EMT needs to know right off the top of their head. Every day is bringing them to new patients and new situations that require medical assistance and the vocabulary to describe and treat what they're dealing with properly. An EMT should be able to do it, but what about you? Take the quiz, and we'll see just how good your EMT vocabulary is.
