Review quote

"I would like to let you know that I really love using your "Pre-hospital Emergency Care" EMT-B Textbook for our EMT-B classes! I have used this text for approximately 5 years now with great results. I have also referred this book to other instructors over the past few years. Today I met with an Education Instructor Group here in Missouri and was not so surprised to hear that they too are switching from their current textbook to the Pre-hospital Emergency Care, Mistovich textbook. I say congratulations to you, your staff, the editors and publishers in producing and distributing such a great textbook." - George Miller, Clinical Educator/TC Coordinator, Center for Education & Development/EMS Programsshow more
