Functional Anatomy for EMS is designed to meet the 1999 National Standard Curriculum for Paramedic Programs. It is the first anatomy and physiology book written with the EMS student in mind. The content satisfies the learning objectives found in the National Standard Curriculum and provides a strong foundation for later studies in pathopyhsiology and pharmacology. Instructors and learners will enjoy using a book that is infused with the paramedic "street perspective," which makes the information more meaningful and pertinent ensuring better retention and application of the information. In addition, this book is richly illustrated with key concepts drawn in detail for increased comprehension.
