Overview

Emergency Medical Responder is the leader in the field. It provides clear, first responder-level training for fire service, emergency, law enforcement, military, civil and industrial personnel. The text is based on the new National Emergency Medical Services Education Standards for Emergency Medical Responders. It also includes the 2017 Focused Updates from the American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and First Aid.

The 11th Edition has been fully updated for consistency with the latest industry standards. It also covers new topics recently introduced into emergency medical responder programs. Step-by-step skills, presented in 90 photo scans, give you a quick reference resource. At the end of each chapter, you'll complete critical-thinking questions prompting you to consider how you might respond to a First on Scene scenario.
