Ambulance Care Essentials is a new book and online course combination, for emergency care assistants and others working in ambulance services within the NHS and private sectors. The book and online materials cover the content that you need to know in order to be an effective member of the ambulance crew.

Important theoretical aspects of the role, such as the principles of communication, legal, ethical and professional issues and health and safety are explained in detail. However, this is a practical job and you will learn how to undertake safe manual handling, conduct a scene and patient assessment, and perform practical procedures such as managing an airway and assessing a patient's breathing and circulation. 

Supporting senior clinicians is also a key part of the emergency care assistant role, and the Ambulance Care Essentials book and online course (bought separately) have got this covered, with explanations on how to assist the paramedic with advanced airway techniques and obtaining intravenous cannulation. Other topics included in the Ambulance Care Essentials book and course ensure comprehensive coverage of the topics and patient populations that you will encounter, and includes: medical emergencies and trauma, cardiac arrest, obstetrics, paediatrics and older people.
