Emergency Care has been setting the standard for EMT-B education for over 30 years, training more than 1.6 million students. More than any other text, Emergency Care has defined the field. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded to meet the needs of today’s students, practitioners, and patients. Featuring three new chapters--Acute Abdominal Emergencies, Geriatric Patients, and EMS Response to Terrorism--the 10th edition challenges students to think critically, a necessary component for success in the field. In addition, the highlighted features “Cultural Considerations,” “Word on the Street,” and “Street Scenes” help prepare them for any emergency in today’s rapidly changing environment.

 

To provide a multitude of opportunities in today’s fast-paced learning environment, Emergency Care 10th edition provides the most comprehensive support on the market today:

 

  • Student CD — Included in every text, the CD has been revised and updated to include multiple-choice questions, vocabulary-building games, an audio glossary with Spanish translations, National Registry Skills sheets, Brady Skills sheets, pop-up trauma photos and exercises, plus new animations that take you inside the body, real-life video clips, scene size-up exercises, and interactive scenarios.
  • Companion Website (www.prenhall.com/limmer) -- Tied chapter-by-chapter to the text, the CW includes interactive quizzes with immediate scoring and feedback, a Spanish outline, and web links to additional EMS resources, state-specific materials, and The New York Times.
  • In addition to our successful Student Workbook, we’ve added two new resources to help students succeed in their programs and on their exams — 1) A new Active Learning Manual, which contains hands-on, critical-thinking exercises to help students understand the foundations of their practice; 2) EMT Achieve, an online test preparation tool that enables students to take practice exams, obtain immediate feedback and remediation, and link to other learning resources.
