Overview

Prehospital Emergency Care is the most complete resource for EMT training. It will help you move seamlessly from assessment to diagnosis to emergency care for life-threatening conditions and injuries.

By offering a foundation of pathophysiology, Mistovich conveys not just the “what” but also the “why” of signs, symptoms and recommended care. In doing so, he will help you confidently assess and interpret findings, deliver excellent emergency care and prepare for success on course and credentialing exams.

The 12th Edition meets 2021 National EMS Education Standards. It reflects the latest and best emergency medical services in the US, including the American Heart Association's 2020 Guidelines for CPR and ECC, as well as the American Stroke Association's latest Prehospital/EMS Care Stroke Guidelines.
