More About This Textbook


BLS Vital Signs As part of First Responder and EMT-B training, students must learn how to take vital signs—pulse, respiration, skin color/temperature/condition, pupils, and blood pressure. Vital signs are a key factor in determining the stability of a patient and monitoring a patient over time. One of the biggest challenges in learning to take vital signs is the absence of actual patients on which to practice. Typically, students take one another's vital signs—and most students are normal and healthy. Therefore, they don't get to see many "real people"—children, older adults, sick and injured people—until they're in the field. This product enables students to practice on a variety of patients in a variety of scenarios—mimicking what they'll see in practice. Also, the value of computer-based training has been an increased ability to allow students to practice skills at their own pace, at the time and location of their choice and with appropriate feedback and remediation. This enhances learning.
