Summary

Develop proficiency as a paramedic and deliver high quality critical care with the all-new Professional Paramedic Series! Based on the National EMS Education Standards, this economical three-volume series equips you with the resources necessary for both paramedic certification and re-certification. Comprehensive, yet street-friendly, each volume in the series walks you through the skills and concepts critical to the job of a Paramedic. The framework of each book is practical in approach: introducing principles, skills and terminology; presenting a typical case; walking through critical response steps; and again reviewing key concepts to ensure understanding for successful application on the job. Begin here with the basics in Volume I: Foundations of Paramedic Care, which provides a solid base of fundamental information about the paramedic profession. This volume covers topics such as the law and EMS, public health, basics of assessment, clinical essentials, and more. After completion of this text, move on to application of skills in emergency situations in Volume II: Medical Emergencies, Maternal Health & Pediatrics, and finish with special response considerations in Volume III: Trauma Care & EMS Operations. Practical and reader-friendly, each volume includes a full color design with detailed photos, graphics and step-by-step skill sequences to ensure you are fully prepared for the responsibilities, adventures, and challenges of a paramedic.
