Bledsoe, lead author of the classic pre-'98 curriculum text "Paramedic Emergency Care," along with co-authors Robert Porter and Richard Cherry, has woven together contributions from field experts to provide detailed, yet student-friendly texts that will set the standard for paramedic education for years to come. In developing this series to meet the new curriculum, the goals were threefold: Comprehensive coverage. The program includes "all" materials required for the new U.S. DOT curriculum and, where appropriate, expanded information. Accuracy. The material reflects the best and latest in scientific and medical practice, written and reviewed by experts. Appropriate level. Concepts and terminology are clearly explained. Beginning at the level of the new student and progressing through the development of new and advanced concepts, this series will provide the student with a broad background of knowledge and a firm grasp of how to apply it to paramedic emergency care.show more
