 Abstract
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to provide an appropriate direction for an effective field practice program by analyzing the factors related to practical procedures in the ambulance ride practice of paramedic students in Korea. Methods: Questionnaires were answered by 202 paramedic students from March 28 to April 15, 2014. The collected data were analyzed with SPSS WIN 18.0 program. Results: The general level of procedural exposure during ambulance ride practice was 59.0% on average. Considering the practice of specific areas, vital sign checking, patient assessment, and oxygen supply showed relatively high percentages of 92.3%, 77.4% and 72.6%, respectively, whereas the areas of fluid and drug, airway, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation recorded relatively low percentage of 25.8%, 24.1% and 50.2%, respectively. The level of direct practice was significantly high in the group that included the largest number of paramedics. Conclusion: For an effective field practice, the place of practice needs to have various cases of patients to ensure a wide experience of procedures during the practice, and ambulance workers with a high level of expertise should be selected to ride with students.
