  • Concept Reinforcement: The Fifth Edition is built on the premise that students need a solid foundation in the basics and then appropriate reinforcement. For example, the Patient Assessment chapter fully details every step of the patient assessment process. Each medical and trauma chapter then revisits this process and discusses elements of patient assessment that may require extra attention when presented with particular emergencies.
  • Clear Application to Real-World Medical Response: Each chapter in the Fifth Edition includes four independent case studies that offer students a genuine context for the application of knowledge presented in each chapter. This approach makes it clear how the information learned in the chapter will be used to help patients in the field.
  • A full chapter on Environmental Emergencies addresses response to heat, cold, and drowning emerge.
