9780131999879: Paramedic National Standards Self-Test (5th Edition)

This is the most thorough book available to assist Paramedics in their preparation for National or Local Paramedic Certification Examinations. This self-test book covers all possible questions that any paramedic may be asked on any exam, requiring users to demonstrate knowledge of the material, and teaches better test-taking skills. All questions adhere to the 1998 EMT-Paramedic National Standard Curriculum as set forth by the DOT, and for the 5/e have been revised to reflect the recommended changes published in the December 2005 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.
