Current, State-of-the-Art Medical Content The Seventh Edition includes in-depth coverage of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology to form an advanced understanding of the human body and disease processes expected of today’s paramedic. Three new chapters have been added to this edition: Community Paramedicine, Research and Quality, and Mechanical Ventilation. The first two represent areas of growth in the scope, role, and importance of paramedics in an integrated health care system. The third acknowledges the paramedics' ability to provide advanced therapies prior to arrival at the hospital, and a growing reliance on paramedics in transfer of critically ill patients in a regionalized delivery of care. Clear Approach to Patient Assessment and Management The Seventh Edition teaches and reinforces the concept of patient assessment with a single, comprehensive chapter, ensuring that students understand patient assessment as a single, integrated process―the way that providers actually practice it in the field.

An additional case concludes each chapter and presents critical-thinking questions to cement the chapter’s concepts.
