4.0 out of 5 stars First of its kind!, 22 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Assessment Skills For Paramedics (Paperback)
Blaber and Harris have brought us a well set out and systematic book which is invaluable to any student studying paramedic education at any level. From students studying paramedicine for the first time, to qualified paramedics furthering their education at degree level this book is a must have addition to the book shelf.

The book aims to take the student through a chapter by chapter review of each major system of the body such as the cardiac and abdominal systems, but also includes some areas not traditionally seen in non-paramedic assessment books such as spinal injury assessments and trauma.

Each chapter is set out in a systematic method, taking you right through the assessment process starting from the initial assessment, through history taking and on to the physical assessment. In addition to this each chapter refers to specific conditions a patient may be suffering from, highlighted key assessment principles vital to that condition. A particularly useful chapter is the one on obstetric assessment. This is traditionally a challenging area for paramedics and one where training is often lacking detail. This chapter highlights all the important and relevant questions to ask and goes on to include the assessment of a neonatal.

For paramedic students undertaking OSCE examinations this book will help the student to understand what they are expected to know and perform but more importantly it provides the student with the foundations to become a competent practitioner who will be able to complete thorough examinations of their patients
