Book Description

August 9, 1997 0835950980 978-0835950985 8
This new Eighth Edition of EMERGENCY CARE has been thoroughly revised and improves the flow of information while meeting the new curriculum requirements. The authors have rewritten the entire assessment module and present the material in a logically developed sequence to reflect the way many instructors actually teach this course. The "FYI" material has been incorporated into the text of the chapters and is clearly distinguished from the "need to know" material. The book has been redesigned and over 200 new photos and art have been added. Full-color scans illustrate in step-by-step fashion many of the procedures presented in the text.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best so Far! November 26, 2001
As a future EMT-B student I wanted to buy some books prior to my course beginning. I bought Mosby's, Aehlert's, and Brady's books. I finally got to this one (being the last I was to read), and have to say this is the best Ive seen so far. With clear concise text, and abundance of knowledge, real life situations, and amazing pictures (which Aehlert's has almost none of), I must say that this book is not only the most informative, but is also the most user friendly. It has a great index, glossary, and the anatomy pictures are cut outs of REAL humans. I mean it just doesn't get any better than this. I just found out a few days ago this is the book my instructor is going to use, and for a good reason!

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent book, but a little confusing in parts. March 5, 1999
By A Customer
I am an EMT-B instructor in West Virginia and have used this edition to teach my classes. I have found it to be a great improvement over previous editions. The text is easy to read, comprehensive and all-in-all an excellent text on EMT-B. My only gripe with the book is that it makes prehospital patient assessment somewhat confusing for new students. The book breaks patient assessment up into several chapters, giving the reader the impression that assessment is both difficult and complicated. This lack of single-chapter continuity coupled with the trepidation many new students bring to this module creates the impression that patient assessment is a disjointed, randomized activity. I have to tell my students that for patient assessment, these chapters are a good reference, but that I will tell them just how easy assessment is; TAKE NOTES!
If Brady would spend a little more time examining this module, I feel as though they can make it a little less imposing and a little more readable.

5.0 out of 5 stars This EMT book is the best, hands down. April 9, 2000
This EMT Emergency book ROCKS! As an EMT student, I find this book to surpass all other EMT books in print. The whole class loves the book as well. I recommend getting the, self study Workbook that accompanies the textbook. Without a doubt, it wins a Gold Metal and a Five Star Award for outstanding publication and instruction into the field of the EMT - Basic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource manual February 18, 2001
By Anne
I am a student interested in becoming an EMT. I know the people at the local fire station so I asked them for a resource book and they gave me a 6th edition of this manual and it is proving to be an excellent resource. It has many pictures and at the beginning of each chapter, it gives a real life scenario for you to focus on for the chapter and explains objectives you should know by the end of the chapter. I've found it very informative and hope that the 8th edition follows in its footsteps. Well done Brady!
