Patient assessment may be the most challenging subject for EMS students to grasp, and there never seems to be enough time in the classroom for practice. Patient Assessment Practice Scenarios allows students to fine-tune their understanding of the patient
assessment process. This BLS- and ALS-level text includes 150 EMS
practice scenarios (75 trauma and 75 medical) that focus on the
assessment process as dictated by the National Registry medical
assessment and trauma assessment skill sheets.
Each case is a script of an emergency call. The student and proctor (who may or may not
be an instructor) may read through the case for rote practice of the
assessment process, or the student may verbally work through the
assessment process, with cues from the book read by the proctor. Cases
may also be used as homework, in the classroom, or for self-study!
This book is for BLS or ALS students who want to successfully learn patient
assessment inside and out before actually working in the field, and any
EMS provider who wants to refresh his or her assessment skills.
