Extend learning beyond the classroom
Pearson eText is an easy-to-use digital textbook that students can purchase on their own or you can assign for your course. Creating a course allows you to personalize your Pearson eText so students see the connection between their reading and what they learn in class, motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning. Learn more about Pearson eText.

Foster an understanding of how to serve ALL patients in real-life situations

  • EXPANDED - Professional photos supply a combination of realistic and real-life emergency images to prepare students for what they will see in the field.
  • NEW - Pediatric and Geriatric assessment, care and treatment is integrated throughout the text. This significant organizational change allows for each chapter to include patient scenarios that cover a range of ages, giving students continuous practice in considering age as simply a factor in their overall information gathering and assessment.
  • NEW - The Patient Care feature that appears in clinical chapters has been fine-tuned to address Principles of Care FIRST, followed by actions that the EMT may need to employ in caring for the patient. With this important development change, actions are not numbered because there is no one correct sequence for patient care. The EMT must continually base decisions and priority actions on the evolving condition of the patient.
  • UPDATED - The Secondary Assessment chapter was reworked into three more focused chapters that cover specific aspects of the EMT's role and care of patients.
  • Street Scenes place book knowledge within the context of real-life calls. Questions within this feature prompt readers to test their knowledge using realistic situations.
  • NEW - The Infectious Diseases and Sepsis chapter (Chapter 24) gives an overview of common infectious diseases that EMTs may encounter, describes the conditions that lead to sepsis, and provides signs that sepsis may be occurring.
  • UPDATED and EXPANDED - The Operations section of the book (Section 7) includes new triage procedures and updated guidelines for handling incident scenes.

Foster critical-thinking and decision-making skills

  • Chapter Review sections include a summary of key points, key terms and definitions, review questions, critical-thinking exercises that ask students to apply knowledge, case studies, and more.
  • Decision Points call out key decisions that are made during assessment and care of a patient.
  • Critical Decision-Making exercises appear throughout the text and help students learn how to make patient-care decisions while at the scene.

Understand and go beyond the standards

  • UPDATED - All chapters throughout the text conform to the most current American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.
  • Core Concepts list the key points addressed in each chapter to help students anticipate chapter content, and guide their studies. Chapter-opening Objectives are based on the National EMS Education Standards.
  • DOT Objectives are listed and follow the DOT numbering system. Each chapter lists the US DOT objectives along with page references that make it easy to see where the objectives are covered.
  • FYI sections broaden students' understanding of individual topics and provide material that goes beyond the DOT objectives.

Benefits of creating a Pearson eText course

  • Share highlights and notes with students. Add your personal teaching style to important topics, call out need-to-know information, or clarify difficult concepts directly in the eText.
  • Access reading analytics. Use the dashboard to gain insight into how students are working in their eText to plan more effective instruction in and out of class.
  • Schedule readings. Add due dates so that students know exactly what to read to come to class prepared.
  • UPDATED - Read online or offline. Download the mobile app to read wherever life takes you, even offline. The app is available on the App Store® and Google Play Store.
  • Integrate with your LMS. Get up and running quickly on the first day of class. LMS integration provides institutions, instructors, and students with single sign-on access to Pearson eText via Blackboard Learn, Canvas, Brightspace® by D2L®, and Moodle. Note: If you integrate Pearson eText with your LMS, students must redeem or purchase access through the LMS.
  • NEW - Listen and learn. Play the full eText audiobook on the go or at home. (Available with select titles.)
  • Engage learners with compelling media. Videos and animations bring key concepts to life, helping students place what they are reading into context. (Available with select titles.)
  • UPDATED - Let students check their understanding. Flashcards help students review key terms and concepts. Students can use pre-built flashcards or create their own to study how they like. (Available with select titles.)

Emergency Care prepares you for modern EMS practice by combining foundational National EMS Education Standards with dynamic critical-thinking features.
