Features

Advanced EMT: A Clinical-Reasoning Approach helps readers study efficiently and use the book as a practical reference

  • Key Terms are listed in bold type at the beginning of each chapter to draw readers’ attention to important terms.
  • A Case Study with Problem-Solving Questions introduces students to the kinds of problems they will encounter in Advanced EMT practice and frames the importance of the chapter content.
    • Case Studies guide students through an emergency situation, emphasising the process of making good decisions after analysing all of the information gathered. In lengthier chapters, the Case Study unfolds with further information given throughout the chapter. This systematic assessment approach assists students in developing their clinical-reasoning skills.
    • The solution to each Case Study is presented at the end of the chapter in the Case Study Wrap-Up, which explains the Advanced EMT’s clinical-reasoning process.
  • Pediatric Care Notes draw attention to key pediatric information within the context of the chapter.
  • Geriatric Care Notes highlight key geriatric information within the context of the chapter.
  • Tables, Figures, and Scans help students learn multiple concepts that are related to one another.
    • Tables assist students in learning and understanding specific information.
    • Figures and Scans provide visual material to enhance the explanations of concepts and procedures presented.
  • Chapter Summaries include a synopsis of the main ideas of the chapter and multiple-choice and critical-thinking questions.
    • Multiple-choice Questions test students' recall of chapter information and simple application of concepts, helping them to not just learn the information presented in the textbook and in class, but also to understand it.
    • Critical-thinking Questions test students' knowledge by requiring them to think their way through the question using the information provided and their previous knowledge to identify the correct answer.
