Overview

For courses in paramedics.

Learning A&P in the context of its emergency care applications
With Anatomy & Physiology for Emergency Care, Dr. Bledsoe builds upon the popular Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology, by Frederic H. Martini and Edwin F. Bartholomew. The result is a text that provides the necessary A&P instruction to study prehospital emergency care, while adding in the clinical correlations and applications of emergency care. Students gain a framework for interpreting and applying information, as well as a basic understanding of common injuries and illnesses. The 3rd edition has been extensively revised and updated with numerous new clinical discussions and dozens of new figures, art, and photographs. Notably, the clinical correlation material now appears next to the topic being discussed.
