5 YouTube Videos That Will Change How You Think About the NREMT

text says "videos to get you ready for the NREMT" with film strip depicting YouTUbe logo and five screenshots of NREMT prep videos
1.  2 Types of NREMT Questions
The National Registry doesn’t put unnecessary information into exam questions, so pay attention when you see a long NREMT question.

2.  Clues in NREMT Questions (Patient Matching Exercise)
Train yourself to recognize clues within NREMT question stems.

3.  EMT Review Office Hours: Difficulty Breathing
Just some good old fashioned practice questions: Three different patients, three different breathing emergencies.

4.  Upper vs. Lower Airway Sounds on NREMT Questions
A good exercise and review for airway questions on the National Registry.

5.  Vital Sign Trends (5-part Series)
Pathophysiology is a big part of the NREMT. How well do you understand pathophysiology? This short series looks at the ways the body compensates for shock, how that affects vital signs, what happens when the body can no longer compensate for shock, and how to use all this information with your patients (or on a test question).

Bonus Playlist: What’s up with all the new question types the NREMT added in 2024?

We review all the new question styles, what they mean, and how to practice them.
