Case Studies: Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured
Designed as a companion to Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured, Tenth Edition, Case Studies offers detailed cases that align with the chapter content in the Tenth Edition. An ideal supplement to any course that utilizes the Tenth Edition, all EMT students will benefit from these vivid, realistic cases.
Each case presents SAMPLE history, vital signs, and assessment information in tabular format for ease of use and features a scenario analysis, answer rationales, and a completed patient care report. Cases covering thirty-one topics are presented, including respiratory emergencies, toxicology, obstetrics and neonatal care, geriatric emergencies, and incident management.
Case-based resources encourage active learning, promote critical-thinking skills, and help you make the connection between cognitive information learned in class and real-life situations.
