Description

For BLS or ALS students who want to successfully learn patient assessment inside and out before actually working in the field, and any EMS provider who wants to refresh his or her assessment skills

Patient assessment may be the most challenging subject for EMS students to grasp, and there never seems to be enough time in the classroom for practice.

This book allows students to fine-tune their understanding of the patient assessment process. This BLS- and ALS-level text includes 150 EMS practice scenarios (75 trauma and 75 medical) that focus on the assessment process as dictated by the National Registry medical assessment and trauma assessment skill sheets.

Each case is a script of an emergency call. The student and proctor (who may or may not be an instructor) may read through the case for rote practice of the assessment process, or the student may verbally work through the assessment process, with cues from the book read by the proctor. Cases may also be used as homework, in the classroom, or for self-study!
