Each well-illustrated 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. Includes real-world case studies. Assumes a familiarity with anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology, and an overall understanding of the nature of medical emergencies. Assessment of the Medical Patient. Airway Management, Ventilation, and Oxygenation Therapy. IV Access and Medication Administration. Hypoperfusion (Shock). Dyspnea. Chest Pain. Altered Mental Status. Acute Abdominal Pain. Gastrointestinal Bleeding. Seizures and Seizure Disorders. Syncope. Headache, Nausea, and Vomiting. Case Studies.
