The critical information paramedics need—in the palm of their hands!

This convenient field guide contains all the information that paramedics need at their fingertips in the field—assessment checklists, anatomic illustrations, vital sign ranges, airway management, medication indications and administration, arrhythmias, and other basic information in the form of tables and charts for quick reference. The full-color, spiral-bound guide is divided into sections that follow the U.S. DOT EMT-Paramedic National Standard Curriculum; sections are divided by color-coded tabs to allow rapid retrieval of information when paramedics need it most.

Paramedics will be able to confirm appropriate pediatric ET tube sizes, emergency measures in the event of an infectious exposure, signs and symptoms of acute illnesses, conditions that warrant supplemental oxygen administration, fracture classifications based on displacement, and much more.
