This one-of-a-kind text provides you with complete, focused coverage of the 1999 National Standard Curriculum for the EMT-Intermediate. Reflecting the 2005 emergency cardiac care guidelines, this outstanding text includes eight new chapters, as well as new content on HIPAA regulations, airway management, treatment of hypoglycemic patients, needleless equipment, new drugs, and more. On the accompanying DVD, watch skills come to life with up-close video demonstrations of 15 skills and 22 detailed medical animations. You can confidently rely on this text for the knowledge and skills you need for practice! Helpful Hints boxes identify "nice to know" information for a deeper understanding of concepts and skills. Clinical Notes boxes provide background information from a clinical perspective. Street Wise boxes call attention to information that will help the EMT-I become more efficient in delivering emergency field care. Detailed Case Studies presented at the start of every chapter and concluded at the end show the application of chapter content and the continuum of care. All content has been updated to reflect the 2005 emergency cardiac care guidelines. New chapters on medication math, abdominal and extremity trauma, geriatrics, weapons of mass destruction, incident command, tactical emergency medical support, patients with special challenges, and cardiac A&P and ECG interpretation prepare you to respond with superior knowledge of these populations and situations. Updates on the HIPAA guidelines are addressed in the medical/legal considerations chapter to help you understand and adhere to the federal law. New coverage of the LMA and dual-lumen airways has been added to the Airway Management chapter to explain timesaving devices for patient treatment. Drug updates in the pharmacology chapter keep you informed of ever-evolving medication treatments. Companion DVD provides video demonstrations of 15 skills, as well as 22 detailed medical animations.
