Prehospital Emergency Care, Sixth Edition, is the book for serious EMT-B's who want to go above and beyond the D.O.T. requirements.

Long considered the most complete resource for EMT-B training, this best-selling, student-friendly text contains clear, step-by-step explanations with understandable material that is comprehensive, stimulating, and challenging enough to prepare and equip students for real on-the-job situations.

Professors need better ways to train students to do thorough patient assessment. Because this revised curriculum emphasizes patient assessment, there is no better book than this one right now. The new edition is now expanded to include even more full-color art and photos of procedures and updated equipment, as well as new flowcharts illustrating assessment and care steps for various emergency situations. The authors also bring students up to date on new protocols that summarize cardiac arrest, pediatric emergencies, as well as many other crisis conditions.

In this Sixth Edition, Brady proudly announces an innovative Companion Website offering book-specific activities and weblinks with interactive activities. In tandem with the text, students and professors can now take full advantage of the World Wide Web to enrich their study of prehospital care. This new multimedia package takes students into the new millennium.


  • NEW--Assessment summaries, protocols, and algorithms that provide an at-a-glance illustration of assessment and care steps for medical and trauma emergencies.
  • Summaries, protocols, and algorithms help students master the steps of emergency care. Ex___

  • NEW--Assessment protocols summarize emergency care for cardiac arrest, stroke, allergic reaction, near-drowning, abdominal injuries, and pediatric emergencies, among others.
  • In-depth patient assessment-based approach presented in a clear, logical format.
  • Case studies integrated throughout the text.
  • Comprehensive, step-by-step coverage meets and exceeds the requirements of the D.O.T. EMT-B curriculum.
  • NEW--New, reader-friendly design highlights key information.
  • Basic Life Support review and National Registry Skill Sheets are included.
  • BLS review helps students recall material that should previously have been covered. National Registry Review Sheets help students prepare for the test they must pass to be certified EMT-B's.
