Paramedic Information
February 26th, 2014

A paramedic is a medical professional, usually working as part of the emergency medical services provision in a given area. Their primary role is to provide pre-hospital advanced medical and trauma care, followed, where appropriate, by transfer to definitive care. Although most paramedics are field based in ambulances or response cars, some may undertake hospital based roles, such as the treatment of minor injuries.
