Need to know how to communicate in Spanish during emergency situations despite knowing only English? EMERGENCIA! Emergency Translation Manual is a language reference for English speaking medical caregivers who need to communicate effectively with Spanish speakers in emergency situations. Translations of a wide array of medical emergencies include phonetic pronunciations of words and phrases and relevant questions that require only "yes" or "no" answers. Diagrams of the human body labeled in Spanish and pages of commonly used words and phrases further facilitate communication and ultimately quicken response time.

As emergency caregivers, we interact daily with a diverse population. Part of the key to providing quality care is communication. As communities diversify, the need to communicate in languages other than English becomes a necessity.

Emergencia will not teach the Spanish language, but will provide the questions necessary to elicit specific care-related answers from Spanish-speaking patients. Most questions are phrased so that the responses required are either "yes" or "no". Thus, it is not necessary to spend valuable time looking for translations of the responses.

Before using Emergencia, become familiar with the manual. The English questions are found on the left-hand side of each page. Their Spanish counterparts and phonetic pronunciations are on the right. Become familiar with the commonly used phrases and body parts...

...it is not necessary to go through the entire manual when presented with a specific ailment or injury...Emergencia was written to make your job easier, not more difficult....
