Description

Ill or injured children present unique situations for EMS providers. Emergency Care for Children is a comprehensive text designed to increase the paramedic's knowledge and skills in caring for this special patient population. The objectives of the 1998 Paramedic National Standard Curriculum are met and expanded upon. Emergency treatment and out-of-hospital issues related to neonates, infants, and children through adolescence are covered in extensive detail. This text emphasizes family-centered care and the importance of the EMT-caregiver interaction. .
