Overview

Develop proficiency as a paramedic and deliver high quality critical care with the all-new Professional Paramedic Series! Based on the National EMS Education Standards, this economical three-volume series equips you with the resources necessary for both paramedic certification and re-certification. Comprehensive, yet street-friendly, each volume in the series walks you through the skills and concepts critical to the job of a Paramedic. The framework of each book is practical in approach: introducing principles, skills and terminology; presenting a typical case; walking through critical response steps; and again reviewing key concepts to ensure understanding for successful application on the job. Volume III: Trauma Care & EMS Operations highlights special response considerations and a broad range of operational medical topics to prepare readers with the complete spectrum of knowledge required to succeed as a Paramedic. Topics include traumatic brain injury, environmental medicine, specialty care transport, triage systems, and much more. This book follows up on the fundamental information covered in Volume I: Foundations of Paramedic Care and the application of skills in emergency situations in Volume II: Medical Emergencies, Maternal Health & Pediatrics. Practical and reader-friendly, each volume includes a full color design with detailed photos, graphics and step-by-step skill sequences to ensure you are fully prepared for the responsibilities, adventures, and challenges of a paramedic.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This [series] goes into great detail and provides additional information where other textbooks stop. This additional information only makes a better, more knowledgeable paramedic and allows them to become critical thinkers."

"The chapters have excellent content for the student. The level and depth of content presented is good for the paramedic… I really like the enhancements [and] the scenarios the authors have used are very real to what would be actual EMS ambulance calls."
