"Informative, easy to follow and distinct in their message, I would recommend Informed's guides without reservation."
—Joseph A. Grafft, Past President, National Association of EMS Educators

The guide in every EMT's pocket is now available as an app for the NOOKcolor.

Informed Publishing, the trusted leader in emergency reference information, introduced the original EMS Field Guide® in 1986. Today it is still the most widely used reference in EMS history, trusted by millions of paramedics, nurses and physicians. Whether you are a student or a 20-year veteran of emergency medical services, this guide gives you fingertip access to all the essential information you need to perform your job.

This app puts critical information at your fingertips with rich content, detailed illustrations and pioneering features. The EMS Field Guide app is available in two editions, Basic & Intermediate Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS), each designed specifically to correspond with the respective tier of EMT certification and practice—so you know you have the right tool for your job.

The Basic & Intermediate (BLS) app is designed for those with entry- through immediate-levels of EMT certification. It is updated with the latest cardiac arrest and CPR guidelines from the American Heart Association. This edition features the latest EMS protocols, and information about EKGs, home medications and much more. This is the resource you will use in classroom training and in practice throughout your career.

The Advanced Life Support (ALS) app equips the Paramedic or EMT-P to triage and address trauma.

    Uhh...really?

    You know 'EMS Basic' is actually like a 1-2 year degree, right? Just the paper actual book version of something like this is like a minimum of $30 This is a pretty fair price. Too much cheaper, and it'd be a steal!
