Fundamentals of Emergency Care has a symptom oriented, assessment based approach to the education of the EMT. It Is designed to be taught using a problem-based learning approach. Problem based learning gives the EMT student an opportunity to learn the material in a more practical manner and one that is more natural to the adult learner. The most outstanding feature of Fundamentals of Emergency Care is its emphasis on real life situations. The integration of the concepts of the emergency medicine into real life EMS on the streets, through case studies, support the student as they apply the knowledge they learn in the classroom. Fundamentals of Emergency Care is intended to make book smart students into street smart EMTs through the use of problem-solving and critical thinking. Materials include basic EMT procedures and the principles of patient assessment, along with communication requirements during emergency situations. Specific chapters are devoted to maternal health, childhood emergencies and elder care. Cultural differences among patients are highlighted. All aspects of the Federal DOT 1994 EMT-Basic Curriculum are covered.
