Format: Paperback
Dr. Nancy Caroline really put some thought into writing this book. It is an extrememly well-organized text and arguably the most thorough review of paramedic skills available anywhere. Her writing style makes the reader feel like they're being told how things really are on the streets. Dr. Caroline REALLY UNDERSTANDS how cirsumstances can differ from in-hospital care. This book covers many advanced topics not found in other "dumbed down" (read: new curriculum) EMS textbooks. It also doesn't read like a comic book, like one of the new EMT-Basic texts. This book is for the serious student of pre-hospital care who wants to be one step ahead of the rest.

This arrived when promised and in better condition that I was expecting. I'm thrilled to have this back. I loaned mine out and it was never returned. It's a great text for new or practicing paramedics. It's an easy read, get to the facts text.

Format: Paperback
Well, if this is the only textbook available to you, that will be the only justifiable reason for ever buying it. The successful conveyance of knowledge is as much dependant on accurate and thorough coverage of its topics as the style of writing. Dr Caroline would do well as a kindergarten teacher. The entire text is written from the perspective of superior (highly at that) to subordinate (lowly and tehn some). I now hold a tertiary degree in emergency medicine and left the preschool grade some years ago. Pre-hospital emergency medicine has come a LONG way in the last 10 years, to the extent that paramedics are capable of bringing an exceptionaly high level of care to the patient with minutes of the emergency arising, and stabilising them for transport (again at an exceptional level of care). Doctors are prepared to delegate pre hospital care to "lesser trained" individuals when the highest level of care and insight is arguably most required within the "golden hour". If this book's text was written in a manner befitting the career, we might find a greater interest in the career path on an international level, and a a greater esteem for the men and women who put their lives on the line in hazardous situations and capably manage major incidents on a daily basis. We are no longer the "first aiders" of yesterlear who only knew to toss a patient on a collapsible stretcher and rush to hospital. We are professionals, trained to make critical decisions under adverse circumstances and extreme pressures. If the "attitude" of this text was revised, this book might finaly find its place as a useful training document.

This text was supplied to my class of BLS Paramedics. I have to say that the concepts were easy to understand and all BUT... For the most part Paramedic students are adults and this book uses alot of "explain it to me like I five years old terms" I keep it on my shelf at home and thats where it will stay.
