Product description

Emergency Care, Twelfth Edition, has set the standard for EMT training for over 30 years. Updated with the latest research and developments in emergency medical services, this edition meets the 2010 American Heart Association guidelines for CPR and ECC, providing all the practical information students need to succeed in the classroom and in the field. Using the National EMS Education Standards as a foundation, this edition goes beyond the Standards to provide the most current, accurate reflection of EMS practice today. Getting students to think like an EMT, the text integrates scientific principles in a way that's easy to understand, and a host of critical thinking features-including a new chapter, "Critical Thinking and Decision Making,"-helps students learn key concepts while getting a dose of the reality of being an EMT. This book is the standalone text and does not include the access code to MyBradyKit. If you would like to purchase the book and access code package, please purchase isbn 0132824418.
