You are absolutely right about the full-on, "technical" designation of a paramedic. It's just that, out in the field, the common practice is to refer to "entry-level" EMTs simply as EMTs and paramedics as paramedics or medics. The general public, I have found, just refers to all of us as paramedics. hahaha
