A first-of-its-kind resource, the Active Learning Manual: EMT-B, is an accumulation of active learning exercises that extend beyond the classroom, encouraging students to develop a deeper understanding of both the knowledge and skills necessary to become an excellent EMT-Basic. No matter which primary textbook is used, students will still benefit immensely from the addition of the ALM to their study program.


  • Chapter Summary: An expanded summary that can be used as a study tool.
  • Med Minute: Co ntained in clinical chapters, these provide a general overview of commonly prescribed medications students will likely encounter.
  • Pathophysiology Pearls: Also contained in clinical chapters, these are designed to provide information relating to specific medical conditions and/or disease processes.
  • Pearls from the Podium: In non-clinical chapters, these are simple but valuable insights shared by the authors covering such topics as study tips, patient care, and career tips.
  • Review Questions: Like so many other things in life, more practice makes for better scores on state and national exams. Question types include short answer, multiple choice, and scenario.
  • Case Studies: Two case studies in each chapter are where critical thinking skills and knowledge are applied. A series of questions follows each case study.
  • Active Exploration: Two in each chapter, here's where the fun begins. Many of these involve getting out of the classroom and actively exploring information and concepts.
  • Retro Review: A minimum of three multiple-choice questions from previous chapters keep the cobwebs from forming on information presented earlier in the course.
  • Thinking and Linking: To put the ''puzzle'' together, this table is a quick reference guide for relating current chapter information to other chapters.
