Learn Medical Spanish for Emergencies

We are building a large selection of interactive Spanish lessons for emergency medical encounters based on listener feedback and suggestions. 

ER Triage 




Chest Pain




Suicidal Ideation


Cardiac Arrest Scenarios

Learn Spanish to address four different cardiac arrest scenarios.


  1. The patient is already in rigor mortis at the time of arrival. 
  2. The patient demonstrates reassuring signs after the initiation of CPR without return of spontaneous circulation. A decision is made to transport to the hospital while continuing CPR
  3. The patient remains in asystole (no cardiac electrical activity) after 30 minutes of CPR. Explain to the family advanced cardiac life support interventions performed to that point and the decision to stop resuscitation efforts
  4. The patient regains a pulse after CPR and will be transported to the hospital for continued care. (Coming soon). 

All our lessons covering Spanish for emergency medical encounters are included in our Emergencies Course!
