Features

For courses in EMS training.

 

EMT Complete: A Comprehensive Worktext, Second Edition, is the first and only worktext to combine the elements of the traditional textbook and a workbook into one easy-to-use student resource. Conceived, written, and reviewed by some of the most dedicated professionals in EMS education today, this worktext is designed to help students develop the critical thinking skills needed to get the best outcomes possible for their patients. Updated and expanded to meet the latest national standards and treatment guidelines, the worktext is also supported with a wealth of on-line resources, offering a learning package designed to help instructors build a highly effective EMT course and ultimately help students become successful EMTs.

 

Hallmark Features:

 

Stop, Review, Remember! questions appear after each section of the text.

  • Offering an opportunity for self-assessment and reinforcement, each set of Stop, Review, Remember! questions contain a minimum of three workbook elements: multiple choice questions, an activity, and critical thinking questions. In most chapters, case studies with questions are also included. Each of these elements is designed to further engage students in the learning process and encourage them to apply the content being presented. 

Module Reviews at the end of each Module reflect the content and organization of the EMT-Basic National Standard Curriculum.

  • At the end of each learning Module, students can take a practice multiple-choice exam modeled after both state and national style certification exams, providing valuable practice for their own certification exam.  

Emergency Dispatch scenarios follow the introduction of each chapter.

  • The objective of this feature is to thrust the student into the mindset of an EMT or EMT partners who have just been dispatched to an emergency.
  • Each scenario wraps up at the end of each chapter with a Dispatch Summary, showing the student the outcome of the scenario. 

Perspectives features are woven throughout each chapter.

  • These features offer personal perspectives of many of the “characters” commonly encountered on an emergency scene, taking students inside the minds of frightened patients, angry and anxious family members, and nosy neighbors.
