Very, very comprehensive textbook, highlighted by the fact that it has over 1700 pages! Has brilliant colour photos, diagrams and cartoons that are clearly referenced into the text. Also has paramedic assessments and then reviews of your answers to help you to apply your theory to different example scenarios with 'You are the Paramedic' case studies.
Another advantage of the textbook that I find very useful and informative is the use of special text boxes to help aid learning and understanding for example, 'At the Scene Boxes' which discusses practical application of material for use in the context of the ambulance call. Other boxes include: Notes from Dr. Nancy Caroline, Special Considerations, Vital Vocabulary, Controversies, Documentation and Communication and Skill Drills. These all help to clarify understanding of the text and draw in extra information to aid learning and more importantly to get you thinking.
In my opinion, well worth every penny, extremely impressed with this textbook and would recommend it to anyone.
