The leader in the field, Emergency Medical Responder, Ninth Edition, provides clear first responder-level training for fire service, emergency, law enforcement, military, civil, and industrial personnel. The new ninth edition retains many successful features from previous editions and includes new topics and concepts that have recently become part of most Emergency Medical Responder programs. The foundation of this text is the new National Emergency Medical Services Education Standards for Emergency Medical Responder, and it also includes the 2010 American Heart Association guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and First Aid.
This textbook is great. I’m taking this for a college class and want to become certified. Its very easy to understand, has study helps, but I also purchased and use the workbook which helps me prepare for tests. The pictures in the book help illustrate how things are done. Highly recommend.
It is an updated version and lots of good information. I used it to teach a First Responder class at the fire department. It was easy for the students to read and the help/quizes at the end of the chapter are beneficial.
I think that the arrangement of the chapters is really bad. This plus the support from Pearson for educators makes it difficult to teach. They’ve atempted to take the First Responder book and change it to Emergency Medical Responder and the support is somewhat out of date. Maybe they are stillworking on it, but I do have to fault their arrangement of chapters. This is the book we are required to use, therefore I just mold the teaching to make it more “teachable”….
Addition…. This book is still just as lacking and to boot, the price is now higher.
