A standard in EMS Education for over 35 years - now with a bold, new approach and updated artwork and images
For over 35 years, Emergency Care has provided generations of EMT students with the practical information they need to succeed in the classroom and in the field. Using the National EMS Education Standards as a foundation, the text goes beyond the Standards to provide the most current, accurate reflection of EMS practice today. Multiple critical-thinking and decision-based features throughout help students integrate the need-to-know material of the classroom with the reality of being an EMT on the street. The 14th Edition has been updated throughout with the addition of more photos, fine-tuned patient care features, and significant reorganization involving the assessment, treatment, and care of children and older adults.
