Paramedic Cardiac Examination Assessment

Here’s an interesting video brought to you by Pro EMS Center for MEDICS in Cambridge, MA. Clearly, this physical exam wasn’t gleaned from a paramedic textbook. I personally think paramedics need to do a much better job when it comes to performing a physical exam. Auscultating valve sounds in the field? Not realistic, IMHO. But I give them an A for effort!

    Classic site for monitoring the pulmonic valve is the left sternal border of the 4th ICS, not MCL (given that variation does occur).
