Learn about OTC emergency medical technician, registering for degree programs, and taking free tests online. Nursing is one of the fastest-growing job areas, and for good reason. As the population ages, medical care will continue to expand. If you complete the emergency medical technician (EMT) program, for example, there are a variety of nursing concentrations that may appeal to you, such as emergency care, nursing management, or occupational rehabilitation. Check with the emergency medicine department for an updated schedule of classes, registration deadlines, and a list of emergency medical technician program requirements. Due to advances in medical systems, there is a growing skill-shortage of trained EMTs, and of medical personnel in general. Please use the form above to request admissions info for OTC.

EMTs and paramedics work both indoors and out, and in all types of weather. In general, there's a high risk for contracting illnesses or experiencing work-related injuries. In addition, emergency medical technicians and paramedics may be exposed to communicable diseases, such as hepatitis-b and AIDS, as well as to violence from mentally unstable or combative patients. The work is not only physically strenuous but can be stressful, involving life-or-death situations. Many EMTs and paramedics are required to work more than 40 hours a week.

The job prospects for paramedics and emergency medical technicians are good, particularly in larger cities. EMTs and paramedics who have advanced education and certification enjoy the best job prospects. Growth in employment opportunities for paramedics is largely due to increased call volumes of medical emergencies. In addition, the time that emergency medical technicians and paramedics spend with each patient is increasing. As a result, when an ambulance arrives, it takes longer to transfer the patient from the care of paramedics to the staff of the hospital's emergency room.

Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens that causes decreased vision. A cataract develops when some proteins clump together and starts to cloud an area of the lens. A cataract won't spread from one eye to the other, although many people develop cataracts in both eyes. As the cataract matures and gets cloudier, it may become difficult to read and do other normal tasks. A number of factors are known to contribute to the formation of cataracts, including aging, certain eye infections, and excessive exposure to bright sunlight.

Cataract surgery is usually done under local anesthesia, and most often takes less than one hour to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial one. There are two primary types of cataract-removal surgery. The first is Small Incision Cataract Surgery, where a tiny probe is inserted into the eye. The probe emits ultrasound waves that break up the cloudy lens into small fragments able to be removed by suction. The second type of cataract surgery is called is Extra-capsular Surgery, where an incision is made in the eye, and the hard center of the lens is removed.
