Features

For courses in Advanced EMT.

 

Advanced EMT: A Clinical Reasoning Approach was developed to assist students in successfully completing their Advanced EMT course and ultimately obtaining their licensure. Advanced EMT is a new level of EMS provider, thus warranting a first edition textbook with the National EMS Education Standards as its foundation. Special care has been taken to ensure that the latest applicable research was reviewed during the development of this textbook, resulting in our ability to deliver the latest evidence-based patient care to you and your students.

 

Hallmark Features:

 

Key Terms that are important for students to know are printed listed at the beginning of each chapter and placed in bold face type to draw their attention. The terms are bold faced the first time they are used or defined in the textbook.

 

“Pediatric Care” notes are used throughout the textbook to draw attention to key pediatric information within the context of the chapter.

 

“Geriatric Care” notes are used throughout the textbook to draw attention to key geriatric information within the context of the chapter.

 

A Case Study with Problem-Solving Questions at the beginning of each chapter introduces students to the kinds of problems they will encounter in Advanced EMT practice and frames the importance of the chapter content that follows.

  • Assists students in developing critical thinking skills following a systematic assessment approach while utilizing resources available to them. 
  • Case studies will guide students through an emergency situation emphasizing the process of making good decisions after analyzing all information gathered.
  • 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. In lengthier chapters the case study unfolds with further information given throughout the chapter.

Tables, Figures, and Scans help students learn multiple concepts that are related to one another.

  • Tables are placed throughout the textbook to assist students in learning and understanding specific information. 
  • Figures and Scans provide visual material to enhance the explanations of concepts and procedures presented in the text.

The 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” are intended to test students' knowledge by requiring them to think their way through the question using the information provided and their previous knowledge to identify the most correct answer.
