    Current State-of-the-Art Medical Content. The Emergency Medical Responder, Sixth Edition incorporates current medical concepts to ensure that students are taught assessment and treatment approaches that will help patients in the field today.

    Clear Application to Real-World Medical Response. Each chapter in the Sixth Edition includes four independent case studies that offer students a genuine context for the application of knowledge presented in each chapter.
