    For some reason, I can’t click start for Exam Four- it’s grayed out. All of the other exams appear to be working fine. I even tried using other browsers. Thanks

      Please try and check the resolution in your browser in the tools area of your browser settings. This exam is a little larger than the others due to the 12 lead tracings.

    I can not get a full screen on the questions

      Some users have issues viewing the start buttons or the full exam player. This is a user end browser issue and not controlled by the website. To view how to adjust and fix this issue please click here for a short video.

    Question 8 “using 2 pam under protocol 400 is designed to?” While I understand the Physiologic effect of the 2-Pam, Page 3 of the BLS protocols, or page 2 of BLS 400 Protocol, States “The end point of treatment is drying of secretions and resolution of other symptoms. this is a fuzzy question!!

    • JimH April 22, 2012 at 10:36 pm #

      Hey Joe – I do see what you mean, but keep in mind you are looking for the best answer provided, not necessarily a better answer that isn’t shown.

      In addition – 2-PAM primary goal is to reverse respiratory depression and paralysis. When combined with Atropine is acts as well to dry secretions. See some of the excerpts I pulled from the NYS DOH site.

      Pralidoxime has an important role in reversing paralysis of the respiratory muscles

      When atropine and pralidoxime are used together, the signs of atropinization
      (flushing, mydriasis, tachycardia, dryness of the mouth and nose) may occur earlier than might
      be expected when atropine is used alone. This is especially true if the total dose of atropine has
      been large and the administration of pralidoxime has been delayed.

      1.Atropine stops the effect of the nerve agent by blocking the effects of over-stimulation. It effectively counters the actions of the nerve agent at nerve receptors.
      2.Atropine relieves the smooth muscle constriction in the lungs (wheezing, respiratory distress) and gastrointestinal (diarrhea, cramps) tract, and also dries up respiratory tract secretions.
      3.The companion drug to Atropine is 2-PAM CL; this drug complements the action of Atropine.
      2-Pam Chloride acts to restore normal functions at the nerve ending by removing the nerve agent and affecting toxin irreversibility. This antidote is effective at re-establishing normal skeletal muscle contraction (relieves twitching and paralysis of respiratory muscles).

      No matter what look for the best answer from the choices given. Good luck

    Thank Jim. Appreciate the feedback

    Very helpful site…!

  10. Greg Jackman May 10, 2012 at 9:52 am #

    …and now question 11 in Paramedic General Knowledge Four says that “POTASSIUM” is the primary extra-cellular electrolyte. I thought it was “sodium,” and when I looked it up, my textbook said the same thing. Did I misinterpret the question?

    • JimH May 10, 2012 at 11:30 am #

      Hey Greg – I appreciate your input on this. You are correct that Sodium is the correct answer. It looks like this is a just a data input error. I will get this corrected.

  11. JimH May 10, 2012 at 11:28 am #

    Thanks Greg – This is really should be worded better. I will make changes on this. Jim

  12. Greg J May 14, 2012 at 7:43 am #

    Sorry, I just realized I became one of those annoying guys you find every group. But thanks for all your help with this site. This is a great product. The guys see me studying and they’re getting subscriptions too. Is there a portion of the site designated for inquiries about some of the practice questions? Thanks again.

    • JimH May 14, 2012 at 8:14 pm #

      No bother or annoyance. I love to help as much as I can and if mistakes or confusing issues are seen I want to know. I may not be able to fix them all right away but they do get noted. Comments can be placed here in the website or sent via email to admin(at)emsseo.com

  13. scott waryold July 13, 2012 at 11:58 pm #

    found the question involving aystole arrest the next step after vasopressin is dextrose per the protocol, the question calls for epi next thanks scott waryold

    • JimH July 15, 2012 at 3:33 am #

      Scottt the question asks “After beginning an IV and administering Vasopressin 40units, if there is no change in the rhythm within 3-5 minutes you may” While the protocol does read Dextrose as a next step, the question is not aksing for a step sequence but an action based on the rhythm. The protocols states –

      If there is no change in the rhythm within 3 – 5 minutes after administration of Vasopressin, administer Epinephrine 1 mg (10 ml of a 1:10,000 solution), IV/IO/Saline Lock bolus, every 3 – 5 minutes

      Which is inline with the way the question is asked.
      Dextrose will not fix the rhytm.

      Hope this helps.

    I don’t see the start button to take the test

    • Jim Hoffman December 12, 2012 at 7:31 pm #

      If you cant see the start button you need to adjust your screen size on your computer.

      In your browser go to the View tab and either zoom in or out

  16. Lori Waters January 4, 2013 at 2:37 am #

    hey on question number 3 NYC REMAC exam 6 it asks how dexamethasone can be given in our protocols it says IV and IM but the correct answer on the exam is IV only?

    • Jim Hoffman January 4, 2013 at 4:08 pm #

      Hey Lori –

      The question asks for this drug via ANAPHYLACTIC REACTION the protocol shows:
      ——
      8. If the patient has signs of decompensated shock:
      a. Administer Methylprednisolone 125 mg, IV/Saline Lock bolus, slowly, over 2 minutes.
      OR
      Administer Dexamethasone 12 mg, IV/Saline Lock bolus, slowly over 2 minutes.
      ——

      However – for the Asthma and COPD guidelines it is IV or IM.

    Exam 2 quesion 15 in the answer Should be total Max 10ug/kg/min 505-D Protocol

    • Jim Hoffman March 4, 2013 at 7:54 pm #

      Thanks for the feedback Thomas Guttman Of teh choices the best answer is “Dopamine 2ug/kg/min IV/saline lock drip”
      You are correct that the entire protocol option reads – “OPTION B: Administer Dopamine 2 ug/kg/min, IV/Saline Lock drip. If there is insufficient improvement in hemodynamic status, the infusion may be increased until the desired therapeutic effects are achieved or adverse affects appear. (Maximum dosage is 10 ug/kg/min, IV/Saline Lock drip.)”
      But the question asks for a Medical Control option only and not a full dosage, route etc. Hope this makes sense.

  20. ROBIN PARISO March 16, 2013 at 6:06 pm #

    I don’t see where the practice exams are located. All I am getting are audio files. I have a Mac and wonder if there is an issue because of this.

    • Jim Hoffman March 17, 2013 at 4:17 am #

      ROBIN PARISO – the videos are in Flash format so as long as you have that on your mac you can view the videos. The practice exams are on the main NREMT Success page. There is a button on that page for the NRE-SIM software that has all the exams included for that content.

  21. Steven Phillips March 25, 2013 at 2:02 am #

    Great site, very educational and helpful. Love the NRE_SIM software… Thank you..
