Synopsis:

The text is an invaluable resource for both students and paramedics working in the emergency environment where critical decisions must be made quickly and confidently.

Organised into three sections - Paramedic Principles, Paramedic Practice and Essential Knowledge - this resource promotes an understanding of basic physiology, clinical decision making and application to practice.

It emphasises the importance of professional attitudes and behaviours, clinical competence, teamwork and communication skills, equipping the reader with the skills required to become an effective paramedic.
