This text offers information on emergency care, providing both the knowledge and skills that an emergency medical technician-paramedic (EMT-P) and an emergency medical technician-intermediate (EMT-I) need for performance of prehospital advanced life support. An ideal resource for preparing for State and National Registry Examinations. This text deals appropriately with stress management and geriatric and paediatric topics, and the first comprehensive text to cover trauma in depth. The book includes chapters on cardiovascular emergencies and pharmacology, eliminating the need for students to buy additional texts on these subjects. Many skills are illustrated step by step in 20 display extracts, with a three-column format which breaks each step into "what", "how" and "why".
