For courses in Paramedic Emergency Medical Services A strong, evidence-based foundation in the principles and practices of modern EMS Paramedic Care: Principles & Practice, Fifth Edition, offers EMS students and professionals a foundational guide and reference to paramedicine. Developed to stay ahead of current trends and practices, all five volumes are based on the National EMS Education Standards and the accompanying Paramedic Instructional Guidelines. Volume 5, Special Considerations/Operations, provides paramedic students with information they need about special populations and paramedic operations. The first eight chapters discuss medical emergencies involving special patient populations: gynecology, obstetrics, neonatology, pediatrics, geriatrics, abused/neglected/assaulted patients, patients with special challenges, and patients who require chronic care. The next eight chapters examine special circumstances that the paramedic may face at any time, including multiple-casualty incidents, rescue operations, hazardous materials, crime scenes, rural practice, and terrorist incidents.
