Overview

For the most realistic view of pre-hospital emergency care, paramedics use MOSBY'S PARAMEDIC REFRESHER AND REVIEW: A CASE BASED APPROACH. This concise text covers all the information needed for recertification preparation and review. It features basic concepts of patient assessment and treatment, incorporating anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology in the context of actual patient encounters. Each chapter presents several real-life emergency scenarios. Questions and answers follow, so paramedics receive immediate feedback.

Features a case-based approach, using actual patient encounters, for realistic learning and increased retention to make information more easily applicable in the field. Relates anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology to patient signs and symptoms to promote understanding at the most basic levels, which means a more thorough grasp of the topic and better performance in the field. Asks questions in a format similar to the thought process of the paramedic on the scene to promote understanding of how one gets from initial assessment through patient transport. Provides answers with final outcome to eliminate guesswork and suggest the most correct response. Includes scenarios with coverage of hot topics such as: pediatric trauma, endocrine emergencies (other than diabetes), neonatal emergencies, and patients with tubes and shunts. Provides a cross-reference table identifying trauma, pediatrics, and geriatrics cases by chief complaint or specific diagnosis to allow for pointed study of these particular topics. Uses 50 ECG strips throughout case studies with interpretation provided in question and answer portion of cases to add visual interest to the text and a realistic feature to the case scenarios. The author is a leading expert in prehospital care, providing this text with the most current, accurate information.
