Provide first response for 911 calls. Paramedics travel in ambulances and deliver medical aid in emergency situations. Some common duties for these healthcare professionals include CPR, shock prevention, bleeding management, and spinal protection. They monitor patients’ conditions and transfer them to hospital care.
