This pocket-sized handbook, based on Beck's best selling text Pharmacology for Prehospital Emergency Care, is an indispensable reference for paramedics and paramedic students. Containing pertinent information on the 73 drugs most commonly administered by paramedics, its small size makes it useful when carrying a larger text is not feasible or convenient. 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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Analyzes how German folktales represent girls in various stages of maturity from the onset of puberty to marriage. Notes the variations in the heroine's original condition (usually family constellation), the antagonists she encounters, and her final state (such as returning home or marrying). Also shows how the Grimm brothers changed the stories to perpetuate stereotypes of the heroine and the wicked mother, and to mask or eliminate the sexual maturation of the heroine and incestuous relationships. Finds that the tales reflect certain puberty rites and thus depict an important function of the oral tradition. Revised and updated from a doctoral dissertation, and translated from the German and supplemented for English readers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
