9780130986320: Advanced Medical Life Support (2nd Edition)

For courses in Advanced Medical Life Support, Paramedic, Continuing Education and In-Service Training. Can be used for the NAEMT AMLS course and is also a perfect compliment to the medical sections of a paramedic course. Going well beyond the new DOT paramedic curriculum, this text offers a high level-yet practical-approach to the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the full range of adult medical emergencies. Each chapter discusses realistic methods that a seasoned EMS practitioner would use-moving from assessment-based procedures with initial management of the threats, to field diagnosis and management of treatable underlying causes. Assumes a familiarity with anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology, and an overall understanding of the nature of medical emergencies.
