Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James A. Judge II, BS (Lake-Sumter EMS)
Description: This is a well-written, comprehensive manual of prehospital care book that will be of immense value to prehospital practitioners.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a definitive, cost-effective book of prehospital medicine. Prehospital care involves nurses and paramedics as well as physicians and this is an excellent reference for all of them.
Audience: It is intended for students, physicians, nurses, and paramedics working in the prehospital emergency medical environment.
Features: The book covers all aspects of prehospital medicine, from the early history to legal issues, and includes comprehensive information on over 75 different topics. What's best about this book is that it is all encompassing, covering every aspect of prehospital medicine and emergency care. Throughout, tables draw readers' attention to important aspects, but the book could have used more pictures and graphics.
Assessment: This is an outstanding manual for the education of physicians, nurses, and paramedics, as well as a great tool for review of proper emergency medical procedures. This book goes farther than most prehospital books, including information on documentation, legal issues, and scene safety. This is a revised version of Pre-Hospital Medicine: The Principles and Practice of Immediate Care, Greaves and Porter (Oxford University Press, 1999) that was a more expensive hardcover book. More practitioners will be able to afford to purchase this new title.
