Paramedics: From Street to Emergency Department Case Book
This great new resource from Bob & Sarah Fellows is a great addition to any practicing front line emergency practitioner from EMT to Advanced Paramedic.
This accessible book will help both practising and student paramedics prepare to deal with 25 of the most commonly seen pre-hospital care scenarios, as well as to revise for practical exams.
Part of a new Case Book series, the book starts with a description of the patient history and examination, then challenges you to spot important signs, determine a likely diagnosis and make important management decisions. This technique helps to cement prior knowledge and teach both scientific and practical knowledge, both vital for today’s paramedic.
By looking at the journey of the patient and paramedic, the authors provide a more complete understanding of the care pathway, helping you to be aware of signs of severe illness and develop safe practice. In addition, the book:
- Encourages you to develop knowledge of pathophysiology, pharmacology and out of hospital emergency treatment plans to point of handover at definitive care
- Covers a wide range of scenarios, from everyday situations to more complex
- Contains practical cases, checklists, clinical tools, key information boxes and clear answers to clinical questions
