Overview

Reflecting the 2010 Emergency Cardiovascular Care guidelines, Mosby's Paramedic Textbook, 4th Edition provides a comprehensive learning tool for both first-time and refresher paramedic students. Coverage includes an overview of key subjects such as pharmacology, airway management, medical disorders, patient assessment, and trauma. ALS patient care skills are presented step by step, both in the book and on the companion DVD. New to this edition are nine new chapters, many new topics, and 150 new photos. Written by paramedic expert Mick Sanders, Mosby's Paramedic Textbook follows the National EMS Education Standards and offers complete coverage of the National Standard Curriculum (NSC) for the EMT-Paramedic.

A JB Course Manager resource is available to accompany this title. JB Course Manager is an easy-to-use and fully hosted online learning platform. For additional information, or to make your request, contact your Account Specialist or visit http://go.jblearning.com/JBCM.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Thoroughly revised and extensively illustrated, this textbook provides complete coverage of prehospital care in a single, comprehensive text. The table of contents is structured to parallel the new United States Department of Transportation (US DOT) paramedic national standard curriculum, giving paramedic students all the resources they need to pass local, state, and national examinations. The text explains the paramedic’s role, the unique characteristics of prehospital care, the how-tos of patient assessment and emergency care for acutely ill and traumatically injured patients, the principles and practice of emergency cardiac care, emergency pharmacology, infectious diseases, pediatric and geriatric emergencies, and much more. A valuable resource for both paramedic students and practicing paramedics, this book keeps the reader abreast of evolving trends in the prehospital emergency care arena while laying the foundation for successful certification or recertification.
