Learn more about Pearson eText.

Supports on-the-job skills with step-by-step instructions and other practical tips, tools, and guides 
  • “Assessment Tips” and “Assessment Summaries” offer clinical insights needed to accurately evaluate medical conditions and link findings to conditions.
  • “Pathophysiology Pearls” explain the causes of medical conditions and injuries so EMTs can best assess signs and symptoms and make the right decisions for each patient.
  • “Case Study” and “Case Study Follow-Up” emphasize key concepts from the chapter, provide a link between the text and real-life situations, and deliver accompanying pathophysiology notes that explain the “why” of signs, symptoms, and recommended emergency care.
  • “Drug Profiles” give specifications for common medications, including medication name, indications, contraindications, medication form, dosage, administration, actions, side effects, and reassessment protocols.
  • “EMT Skills” and “Emergency Care Protocols” provide step-by-step procedures to help EMTs deliver safe, effective emergency care based on proven methods.
  • “Emergency Care Algorithms” visually depict procedural steps, further illuminating care and assessment processes.
  • “Critical Findings” throughout Chapter 13 (“Patient Assessment”) explain conditions, signs, and symptoms to expect at every step of the assessment, what might be causing them, and how to address them.

Reflects the latest and best medical knowledge and practices in emergency medical services 

  • UPDATED! Course of treatment for spinal trauma has been revised to emphasize spine motion restriction rather than immobilization whenever possible spinal (column or cord) injury is suspected.
  • UPDATED! Latest American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines inform strategies for providing excellent patient care.
  • UPDATED! Vital signs values throughout the text have been revised to reflect guidelines of the AHA and American Academy of Pediatrics.
  • UPDATED! Recommendations for oxygen administration in medical patients and trauma patients have been revised to reflect standards of the AHA and the American College of Surgeons.
  • NEW! Extensive new section on sepsis and the cause of septic shock now appear in Chapter 15, “Shock & Resuscitation.”
  • NEW! Pharmacology coverage has been added. Topics covered include naloxone, manual administration of epinephrine, and cautions regarding the administration of oxygen.
  • EXPANDED! “Respiratory Emergencies” chapter has been expanded with information on breathing distress (respiratory distress/failure/arrest), obstructive pulmonary disease (asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis), and pulmonary embolism, pulmonary edema, and cystic fibrosis.
  • UPDATED! Altered mental status coverage has been greatly expanded to include AHA’s Stroke Chain of Survival, FAST mnemonic, TIA, cryptogenic stroke, and signs and symptoms associated with anterior circulation stroke and posterior circulation stroke.

Offers a wealth of study aids to help students master the material and pass exams

  • Objectives inform chapter-by-chapter content and meet National EMS Education Standards and instructional guidelines.
  • Key terms appear at the start of each chapter (with page references), in bold type within the chapter, and in the end-of-book glossary.
  • Multimedia exercises appear in MyLab BRADY, including related web links, animations, and videos.
  • NEW! Photos and illustrations have been added throughout the book.

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.
  • Customize and schedule readings. Rearrange the Pearson eText table of contents at both the chapter and section level to match the way you teach. Add due dates so that students know exactly what to read to come to class prepared.
  • 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.
  • 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.)
  • Let students check their understanding. Personalized Study Tools are easy to access on both the web and mobile app to help students learn key terms. (Available with select titles.)

Prehospital Emergency Care gives you the solid foundation in pathophysiology youll need to quickly identify immediate life threats and deliver excellent emergency care.

Pearson eText is an easy-to-use digital textbook that instructors can assign for their course. The mobile app lets you keep on learning, no matter where your day takes you — even when you're offline. You can also add highlights, bookmarks, and notes in your Pearson eText to study how you like.
