Customer Review

on 21 March 2012
Paramedic education is changing to match the modern health care system where paramedics are now a very much respected and integrated part of a multidisciplinary team. This is especially true of the emergency care aspect of the job, working alongside doctors, nurses and other health care professionals in the accident and emergency departments. Until now there have been very few books that outline the importance of all stages of the care received by a patient. Fellows and Fellows have written a book that follows a patient's care through each stage of their treatment and shows the student this patient journey.

This book is aimed at students who are new to the paramedic profession, and as such the level of the book it pitched at exactly the right level, without overwhelming the student. In addition to new paramedics it works well as a supplementary book for anyone working in the pre-hospital field to remind them the importance of seeking a differential diagnosis and not jumping to any conclusions.

The book follows 25 patient journeys from the 999 call to the point of diagnosis and gives the student the chance to make their own diagnosis as the scenario develops, and then find out if they were correct as more information and diagnostic tools reveal the nature of the diagnosis.

This is a good book for paramedic students to read and enjoy.
