4.0 out of 5 stars Patient Assessment made easy, 15 Mar. 2012
By 
This review is from: Assessment Skills For Paramedics (Paperback)
This easy to read guide is well structured and encourages systematic assessment of the patient - in an easy to understand ABCDE approach

It is arranged in chapters focusing on specific systems of the body, and provides guidance on how to conduct a detailed assessment of that particular system. In my opinion it is perfect for all levels - ECAs, Technicians, Student Paramedics of all years and qualified Paramedics - as it is well written and starts with the basics first. I am a first year Student Paramedic with limited experience of patient assessment and have found the book very useful. I would encourage any Student Paramedics to read an A&P book along side this, as this book focuses primarly on assessment, and it will be helpful to have a background knowledge in A&P to understand why these assessment techniques are being used

It is a great reference tool, and the chapters have been written by health care professionals with a huge amount of experience and different backgrounds. There is also a chapter on mental heath which has been particularly useful - and it is great to know that as well as helping me in my clinical studies, it also encourages you to look at the bigger picture and assess a patient's mental health and social history to be able to make appropriate decisions relating to the care of the patient
