Becoming a Flight Paramedic or Flight Nurse is a dream job, but passing your advanced certification exam can be a nightmare. You have to have experience and really enjoy power-reading all those textbooks. Then you have to hope you studied the right content and remember it all long enough to pass the test. It’s not easy!

A lot of people fail their certification exams on the first try because they don’t know how to study, or don’t have a good study system in place. They either just read textbooks or just use practice exams but neither one is very effective at helping them retain this vital information so they can pass their exam on the first try when used by themselves, or used without someone to guide them on the right way to use them.

Our online Flight Paramedic, Critical Care Paramedic, and Certified Flight Nurse (FP-C, CCP-C, and CFRN) Exam Review Course was specifically designed by seasoned educators with decades of experience teaching critical care paramedics and nurses how to prepare for these difficult exams. We’ve combined study tools and techniques that work best for every student into a comprehensive learning system that makes studying easier than ever before while exponentially increasing your chances for success on your advanced certification exam!

Course Content

Flight Physiology is a core subject that encompasses concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. The section will cover gas laws, gas law implications, stressors of flight, atmospheres, stages of hypoxia, decompression, and time of useful consciousness.

Oxygenation Physiology is a core subject that encompasses concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. The section will cover aerobic and anaerobic respiration, oxygen delivery, oxygen consumption, and carbon dioxide (CO2) diffusion.

This is an extensive look at acid-base balance, with a deep focus on the critical care medicine application. Acid-base balance is a core subject that encompasses concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. The section will cover the four metabolic disorders, labs that dictate acid-base balance, extensive base excess evaluation, with a focus on what fills the anion gap, and the anion gap calculation formulas.

Respiratory emergencies are standard core subjects that encompass concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. The section will cover standard respiratory emergencies, assessment, treatment, and chest X-Ray evaluation and diagnosis.

Advanced Airway Management is a core subject that encompasses concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. The section will cover advanced airway management and rapid sequence intubation, with clinical application, test-taking tips, and new evidence-based practice discussion

Mechanical ventilation is a core subject that encompasses concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. The section will cover basic and intermediate ventilation concepts, techniques, and approaches related to the transport environment.

This is an extensive look at acid-base balance, with a deep focus on the critical care medicine application. Acid-base balance is a core subject that encompasses concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. The section will cover the four metabolic disorders, labs that dictate acid-base balance, extensive base excess evaluation, with a focus on what fills the anion gap, and the anion gap calculation formulas.

Endocrine, Hematology, Renal, and Sepsis topics encompass concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting.

This is a full Master Class on Cardiac Physiology, with a comprehensive look into 12 lead interpretations. This module will give you a great foundation, from basic to advanced 12 lead interpretation, with a huge focus on current evidence-based practice and the newest diagnostic equivalents seen in cardiology today!

The topic of advanced hemodynamics encompasses concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. This section will cover pressure line setup, central lines, pulmonary artery catheters (swans), hemodynamic parameter evaluation, and application (CVP, RV S/D, PA S/D, PCWP, SVR, Q, CI), shock evaluation, and core resuscitation application in the transport environment.

IABP therapy is a core subject that encompasses concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting.

Trauma is a core subject that encompasses concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. The section will cover mechanism of injury considerations, airway management assessment in trauma, penetrating and blunt trauma assessment, burn assessment, burn management, the consensus formula, the Parkland formula, and core resuscitation endpoints utilized in trauma.

Environmental-Toxicology is a core subject that encompasses concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. The section will cover heat and cold emergencies, near drowning, drowning, and other common environmental treatments.  In addition, we cover toxicological and metabolic ingestion, environmental toxicology, bites, stings, and common antidotes seen in the emergency environment.

OB/GYN is a core subject that encompasses concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. The section will cover a variety of topics related to the emergent OB emergency that’s often seen in the pre-hospital environment.

Neonatal and pediatric emergencies are both core subjects that encompass concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting. The section will cover differences seen in the neonatal and pediatric patient population, common treatment considerations, birth defects, heart defects, and core resuscitation concepts.

The Interpreting Laboratory Values Master Class takes an in-depth look into the Basic Metabolic Panel, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, Complete Blood Count, and many ancillary labs such as Serum Osmolality, Urine Specific Gravity, Troponin, CK-MB, and more.  In addition, we finish off this laboratory study with our acid-base balance blitz, with a deep focus on the critical care medicine application. Laboratory values, including acid-base balance, are core subjects that encompass concepts consistently applied in both testing and clinical environments within the critical care pre-hospital setting.

Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) is a core topic related to the advanced certification exams including FP-C, CCP-C, CTRN, and CFRN. This module is worth based on the newest updated 12th edition standards that will be published in October, 2022.
