It has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest and best practices for emergency medical services in the US, including conforming to the latest American Heart Association guidelines. Spine motion restriction, naloxone administration, sepsis, stroke screening tools, human trafficking, active shooter, domestic violence, and clinical decision-making with regard to oxygen administration are just a few of the updates readers will discover in this hallmark text.
