Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A first-of-its-kind resource, the Active Learning Manual: EMT-B is an accumulation of active learning exercises that extends beyond the classroom, encouraging students to develop a deeper understanding of both the knowledge and skills necessary to become an excellent EMT-Basic. No matter which primary textbook is used, students will benefit immensely from adding the ALM to their study program.

Active Learning is an approach whereby students take an active part in the learning process. This system reaches beyond taking notes, asking questions, and participating in skills practice sessions, where the instructor is placed at the center of the learning. Active learning involves reading, writing, discussing, and solving problems. Simply stated, active learning means getting students involved both in doing things and in thinking about the things they are doing.

We have assembled a variety of activities that move the student to the center of the learning process. In addition, we have striven to create activities that address as many learning styles as possible. Chapter features include:

  • Chapter Summary: An expanded summary that can be used as a study tool.
  • Med Minute: Contained in clinical chapters, these provide a general overview of commonly prescribed medications students will likely encounter.
  • Pathophysiology Pearls: Also contained in clinical chapters, these are designed to provide information relating to specific medical conditions and/or disease processes.
  • Pearls from the Podium: In non-clinical chapters, these are simple but valuable insights shared by the authors, including study tips, patient care, and career tips.
  • Review Questions: As with so many other things in life, benefits result from increased practice; in this case, the benefits include improved scores on state and national exams. Question types include short answer, multiple choice, and scenario.
  • Case Studies: Two case studies in each chapter allow students to apply critical thinking skills and knowledge. A series of questions follows each case study.
  • Active Exploration: Two in each chapter, here's where the fun begins. Many of these involve getting out of the classroom and actively exploring information and concepts.
  • Retro Review: A minimum of three multiple-choice questions from previous chapters keep the cobwebs from forming on information presented earlier in the course.
  • Thinking and Linking: To put the "puzzle" together, this table is a quick reference guide for relating current chapter information to other chapters.

Synopsis:

This first-of-its-kind resource is an accumulation of active learning exercises that encourage users to develop a deeper understanding of both the knowledge and skills necessary to become an excellent EMT-Basic. Chapter topics include the well-being of the EMT basic, medical/legal and ethical issues, lifting and moving patients , airway management, assessment of trauma and medical patients, general pharmacology, respiratory and cardiac emergencies poisoning and overdose emergencies, bleeding and shock, ambulance operations, and much more. : For individuals training to be emergency medical technicians.
