Fundamental's of Emergency Care has a complaint oriented, assessment based approach to the education of the EMT. It is designed to be taught using a problem-based learning approach. Problem based learning gives the EMT student an opportunity to learn the material in a more practical manner and one that is more natural to the adult learner. The most outstanding feature of Fundamental's of Emergency Care will be its emphasis on real life situations. The integration of the concepts of the emergency medicine into "real" life EMS on the streets, through case studies, will support the student as they try to apply the knowledge they learn in the classroom. Fundamental's of Emergency Care is intended to make book smart students into street smart EMTs through the use of problem-solving and critical thinking. All aspects of the Federal DOT 1994 EMT-Basic Curriculum are covered.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Fundementals of Emergency Care by Beebe provides the required body of knowledge in a refreshing way. It incorporates many tools that will make it attractive to EMT students. It addresses several topics in a stellar fashion. It understands its target audience better than other texts. It is visually appealing and provides many devices that keep students interested. It succeeds in its endeavor to be informative and interesting and it raises the bar for others in terms of presentation." — Mike Barnum, MD (University of California Davis Medical Center, Sacramento, CA)
Using problem-based learning and a complaint-oriented, assessment based approach, Beebe (Basset Healthcare Center for Rural Emergency Medical Services Education) and Funk (emergency medicine, Albany Medical College) emphasize real-life situations and case studies to teach basic emergency health care. The 45 chapters discuss emergency medical services; anatomy and physiology of the human body; fundamentals of care; patient assessment; communications; specific symptoms, behaviors, pharmacology, environmental emergencies, and poisoning and allergic reactions; trauma care, maternal health, childhood, and geriatric emergencies; and EMS operations. Contains many color photographs and illustrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

    Incomplete book

    This book has taught me some, but there is a lot of information left out and the disk has some wrong answers and is not an effective studying aid.
