An EMT Program/Instructor's Feedback 22 Oct. 2013
By Frodo Baggins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been teaching with "Prehospital Emergency Care" since the 5th edition. This edition has not only added a new chapter and updated content to reflect new practices, it has infused the text with a major slap of more advanced concept pathophysiology.

For instructors and students: the level of pathophysiology (alpha/beta, pre and afterload, SVR, epinephrine's affect on insulin, RAS, ventilation/perfusion ratio, etc...) is a slow sluggish path to wade through. The National Standards Curriculum does not require such level of specificity and most of the how and why of the pathophysiology will not change the BLS management of a patient. However, there are some questions on the NREMT that relate to these topics.

Many of the images and graphs have been updated, but are still quite repetitive.

The assessment chapter is a nightmare to get through - as it has been. New EMS students cannot digest 15+ assessment algorithms this quickly. BSI is now "Standard Precautions." There are many changes to oxygen administration.

Even with its flaws, it is still the best EMT training text out there.

EMT 4 Aug. 2014
By tommy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is everything that I needed, it was brand new. The authors did a very poor job improving the book though compared to the last edition. I had hoped that they edited out the many confusing points. Over all, I passed the national reg test. Youtube does a better job explaining some of the points.

The book seems to be very repetitive but overall is a good in depth book. I am about half way through it. Renting the book is good idea.
Prehospital Emergency Care Review 12 Mar. 2015
By Brad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I just passed the EMT Basic exam and I give the credit to my instructor and this book. Its topics are broad but not too deep. Right balance of detail to learn the clinical information and to pass the exam without being overwhelmed with complicated medical jargon. Good content layout and graphics. Outstanding book.

Very informative, but not concise 8 Feb. 2014
By steaklover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is very thorough and good, but too repetitive, in my opinion. It could be two thirds the size it really is if it weren't so repetitive (and it's an enormous book too -- very heavy! ).
