What can emergency medical technicians do in ambulance? In the States, what can emergency medical technicians do in ambulance? Can they suture? Do they use surgical knife in ambulance like a doctor?
No. We don't suture in an ambulance. EMTs cannot do nearly as much as paramedics, so I think you're thinking paramedics. There are medics that work in EDs that do more, but the only thing we have scalpels for are in the OB kit and to perform a cricothyrotomy. But my company uses needle crics instead. I believe most ambulance companies just do needle crics because the theory is they are less messy.
