What are Paramedics?

Paramedics are healthcare professionals who render advanced care on the scene of an emergency and in transit from an emergency scene to the hospital. Emergency medical technicians, or EMTs, are very capable of assisting paramedics as they utilize defibrillators, pacemakers and IV lines to stabilize emergency patients.
