  • .

  • Accuracy. The material reflects the best and latest in scientific and medical practice, written and reviewed by experts
  • .

  • Appropriate level. Concepts and terminology are clearly explained. Beginning at the level of the new student and progressing through the development of new and advanced concepts, this series will provide the student with a broad background of knowledge and a firm grasp of how to apply it to paramedic emergency care
  • .
