Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT)

AEMT Overview

The AEMT is considered a Limited Advanced Life Support (LALS) provider. In the State of Michigan, the major addition to the scope of practice for an AEMT compared to an Emergency Medical Technician - Basic (EMT-B) is the ability for the AEMT to administer additional medications such as ondansetron, glucagon, nitrous oxide (NO2)

The AEMT also ads intravenous (IV) and intraosseous (IO) access skills to their scope of practice. This also includes the ability to administer fluids such as dextrose, saline, and lactated ringers. The AEMT is also equipped with the skills to place a laryngeal mask airway (LMA).

Not all medical control authorities allow all of medications in the the Michigan EMS Scope of Practice for an AEMT.

This course is an AEMT course with exit points. This means that students can choose to exit the course at a set point to be eligible to test/license as an MFR. The same option exists for exit and testing/licensure as an EMT-B. Students who complete the entire course and obtain EMT-B licensure in the required time frame, are eligible to test/license as an AEMT. This is not a traditional stand-alone course offering.
