Brady, your partner for life, is pleased to present a new solution for your EMT course. This new solution focuses on two ideas: 1) a combination text/workbook enables students to instantly apply knowledge learned-throughout a chapter, not just at the end; 2) understanding the perspectives of all individuals on scene makes for better judgment and decisionmaking. Inside, the worktext, you will find that the content is well organized, easy to read and based on current EMS research and practice. Additionally, integrated elements are found throughout each chapter to challenge and encourage students to test their understanding of concepts as they are presented.
