A legend in EMS education just got better!

In 1971, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) published the first edition of Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured and created the backbone of EMS education. Now, the Tenth Edition of this gold standard training program raises the bar even higher with its world-class content and instructional resources that meet the diverse needs of today’s educators and students.

Based on the new National EMS Education Standards, the Tenth Edition offers complete coverage of every competency statement with clarity and precision in a concise format that ensures student comprehension and encourages critical thinking. The experienced author team and AAOS medical editors have transformed the Education Standards into a training program that reflects current trends in prehospital medicine and best practices. New cognitive and didactic material is presented, along with new skills and features, to create a robust and innovative training solution for your course that will engage students’ minds.

Interactive resources, including online testing and assessment materials, learning management system, and eLearning student resources, allow you the flexibility to build the course that works best for you and your students. The Tenth Edition is the only way to prepare EMT students for the challenges they will face in the field.

"...follows the EMT-Basic National Standard Curriculum... reviews the safeguards important to prehospital care and addresses hepatitis, AIDS, and patient violence."
