Pearls of wisdom series


Haskell, the director of an emergency services consulting firm, steps though advanced pre-hospital emergency medicine issues so users can prepare for state and national certification and refresher exams as well as review the content of the United States Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Emergency Medical Technician-paramedic National Standard Curriculum. With the knowledge in mind that real-life standards can change faster than those in the curriculum, Haskell keeps explanation to a minimum and instead refines the information down to its core, covering such preparatory issues as ethics, pathophysiology, and pharmacology, then diving into pearls about the airway, patient assessment, trauma, medical emergencies, operations, and special considerations such as neonatology, pediatrics, geriatrics, abuse, patients with special needs, and caring for the chronically ill.
