Summary

In this newly revised second edition, the pharmacology information has been updated to include virtually every drug used by the EMT-Intermediate.

Written by the authors of the best-selling Paramedic Emergency Care, Third Edition, this text follows the current United States D.O.T. National Standard Curriculum for Emergency Medical Technician - Intermediate. It offers comprehensive instruction in all EMT-I skills with a strong emphasis on safety and infectious disease precautions.

The text's informative, easy-to-read prose explains both essential and optional EMT-Intermediate skills so students clearly understand what will be expected of them as providers. A wealth of richly-detailed, full-color illustrations help them visualize the emergency situations in which their skills will be so vitally important.
