The most complete resource for EMT-B training, this best-selling, reader-friendly book contains clear, step-by-step explanations with comprehensive, stimulating, and challenging material that prepares and equips users for real on-the-job situations.
With its use of the case study model, state-of-the-art scans, algorithms, protocols, and the inclusion of areas above and beyond the DOT protocols, this new, 9th edition of Prehospital Emergency Care prepares users for success. The assessment and emergency care sections provide the most up-to-date strategies for providing competent care; and the enrichment sections further enhance readers' ability to assess and manage ill and injured patients in prehospital environments.
Topics covered include an excellent introductory section that contains an overview of the human body, baseline vital signs, history taking, and ethical and legal issues. Subsequent chapters cover the airway; patient assessment; medical, behavioral, and obstetrics/gynecology; trauma; infants and children; operations; and advanced airway management.
"I would like to let you know that I really love using your "Pre-hospital Emergency Care" EMT-B Textbook for our EMT-B classes! I have used this text for approximately 5 years now with great results. I have also referred this book to other instructors over the past few years. Today I met with an Education Instructor Group here in Missouri and was not so surprised to hear that they too are switching from their current textbook to the Pre-hospital Emergency Care, Mistovich textbook. I say congratulations to you, your staff, the editors and publishers in producing and distributing such a great textbook." - George Miller, Clinical Educator/TC Coordinator, Center for Education & Development/EMS Programs
