Medical Case Studies for the Paramedic contains 20 case studies representing a variety of medical emergencies that the paramedic may encounter in the field. Each case study begins by presenting dispatch information and a general impression of the patient upon arriving at the scene. Then, as the case progresses, pertinent patient information is provided, interspersed with a series of standardized questions designed to assess the paramedic's ability in correlating specific signs and symptoms with a particular medical condition and providing the appropriate treatment.

This textbook teaches the basic principles of mathematics and applies these principles to cases that paramedics face on the job. Chapters cover math rules and principles; fractions, decimals, and percentages; ratios, proportions, and conversion factors; and rate-dependent and weight-based calculations. Practice problems are scattered throughout the chapters; students practice as they go. Every chapter highlights how paramedics can make use of the math knowledge that they already have in order to solve more complicated problems. Chapters begin with the simple and obvious, and progress to the level used in the field.

Paramedic: Anatomy and Physiology utilizes a systemic approach, beginning by formulating a basic picture of the human body, then moving into more anatomic detail. Individual chapters discuss body systems, both how they function individually and together as a unit. In addition to the overall picture of each system, this text presents both the gross anatomy and the microscopic anatomy of vital structures.
