In the hospital or emergency setting, this handy reference guide can fit in a lab coat or be conveniently stored in the ambulance or helicopter. The guide is dividend into three sections: adult, pediatric and general. Because most patients encountered by the paramedic are adults, this section appears first. American Heart Association treatment algorithms are included for easy reference. Medications are listed in alphabetical order by generic name so that the paramedic can locate them rapidly.
