Prehospital Emergency Care with CDROM Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Prehospital Emergency Care provides a comprehensive and student-friendly approach to EMT – Basic education.  The author takes great care to provide a foundation for the skills needed to be a successful EMT – Basic. In addition, he offers clinical insight throughout the text so students have a better understanding when performing patient assessment and providing patient care.  This book is ideal for the EMT-Basic who wants to go above and beyond the DOT requirements. 

Synopsis:

Key Benefit: The seventh edition of this best-selling, reader-friendly book contains clear, step-by-step explanations with understandable material that is comprehensive, stimulating, and challenging enough to prepare and equip practitioners for real-life situations. Key Topics: Contains assessment flowcharts illustrating care steps for breathing difficulty, cardiac compromise, diabetic emergencies, bleeding and shock, burns, head injuries, newborn resuscitation, and many more. Assessment summaries, protocols, and algorithms summarize care for, but not limited to cardiac arrest, stroke, allergic reaction, near-drowning, abdominal injuries, and pediatric emergencies. Market: For serious EMT-B's who want to go above and beyond the D.O.T. requirements.
