New Updated Edition!
The Paramedic Companion: A Case-based Worktext is a nontraditional workbook that can be used throughout the paramedic curriculum and is tightly integrated with the main textbook. The Paramedic Companion goes beyond the simple “review and test” approach of most workbooks. Instead, it supports your exploration of the art and science of prehospital medicine by providing a rich palette of learning tools, images, and even video to better explain concepts and techniques. The Paramedic Companion speaks clearly and directly to the paramedic student. The material in each chapter revolves around “Need To Know” content, based on the DOT objectives, that the authors of both the Textbook and Worktext felt was absolutely necessary for the paramedic student to master before moving on to the next section or chapter. All features in the Manual were designed to ensure that learners can successfully master these key content areas.
