NREMT-P Oral Stations

What sort of questions or scenarios do they present or is it a hodge podge, or Cracker Jack box if you will, of anything?
Thanks in advance for any insight.

I'm not sure yet. I'm hoping there will be a skills testing site in Greenville by the time I have completed classes. According to the NREMT website, there isn't one listed that I could take as we won't be done by the deadline to apply.
Where are you taking the test?
There is a CBT testing site about 2 miles from me in Greenville so that isn't a problem.

The seem to want you to ask about the environment simply from the point of view of covering your "additional resouces" concern. Is there a crowd? A bunch of steps? Bariatric patient? I simply asked "Are there any issues to ingress or egress or any reason to believe I will need additional resources?" and that seemed to cover it.
You can get the proctor info off of the NR site. What's allowed and what's not. One thing I found interesting (per a classmate) was that they can deteriorated a patient's condition, but can't take them to a point where you can't recover them. So if they go down a slippery slope...it's a very, very long slope with lots of time to recover.
I also won't mention my scenarios as we're asked not to...but I will tell you they were amazingly straight forward. No tricks, traps or ambiguities.
Take lots of vitals. A trick one of my MD instructors taught me (though I didn't use it...I hate tricks meant to allow me to be lazy or foolish) was "I'd like Person "A" to take a set of vitals, repeat them every 5 minutes or after any interventions and report those findings to me" Supposedly that can CYA in case you forget to take a set at some point.
Mainly, don't stress. If you passed ITLS (or one of it's incarnations) and ACLS, have a handle on treating common respiratory issues...then this will be nothing more than a simple story telling session.
