For all education programs that cover pharmacology in prehospital emergency care, especially courses for EMTs and paramedics.

Prehospital Emergency Pharmacology, Seventh Edition is a comprehensive guide to the most common medications and fluids used by paramedics and other emergency medical service (EMS) professionals in prehospital emergency care. A cornerstone of EMS education for more than 25 years, it has been extensively revised in this edition to reflect current trends in emergency care, especially the growing requirement for evidence-based practice. A valuable aid to both practicing paramedics and paramedic students, it presents care procedures that represent accepted practices throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as up-to-date medication dosages according with nationally accepted standards, including those of the AMA, AHA, and PDR.
