ISBN: 131723405

Introductory chapters cover assessment, airway management, oxygenation, and ventilation, as well as venous access and medication administration. Medical complaint chapters provide an integrated approach to patient care along with coverage of shock, dyspnea, chest pain, altered neurological status, acute abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding, seizures, syncope, and others. Each chapter discusses realistic methods that a seasoned EMS practitioner would use. Chapters move from assessment-based procedures with initial management of life threats to field diagnosis and management of treatable, underlying causes and contain a case study and an end-of-chapter case study follow-up. A final "Case Studies" chapter brings it all together in exercises applied to a variety of patients in hypothetical situations.
