"I am an Emergency Medicine Physician, fellowship trained in Emergency Medical Services. I have reviewed the airway chapter in the 10th edition of Emergency Care, for an EMT-B course for which I am serving as Medical Director. The chapter is excellent. It clearly states the goals, and objectives, and covers the subject with a great balance of concisely written text, pictures, and diagrams." - Ron Crafton, MD, Medical Director, EMS Academy of Louisville
