Paramedic Job Description

Have you ever wanted to save another person’s life? Such a great act is a daily occurrence in the life of a paramedic. So what exactly composes a paramedic job description? One of the principal duties carried out by paramedics is, of course, driving an ambulance. Paramedics must be expertly trained to drive extremely quickly and safely while under extreme pressure. At the same time, a paramedic also functions as an emergency room doctor and must be able to make split-second decisions as to how to treat a dying patient and keep them alive on the way to the hospital. To become a paramedic, the educational requirements include extensive medical training and certification.
