Overview

For courses in Prehospital Emergency Care.


The most complete resource for EMT training

Comprehensive in scope and student-friendly, Prehospital Emergency Care conveys the “WHY” behind the signs and symptoms students observe and the services they provide. Through a solid foundation of pathophysiology, students will learn to quickly identify immediate life threats and deliver excellent emergency care.

The 11th edition continues to meet and exceed the National EMS Education Standards. 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.
