Emergency Medical Responder: A Skills Approach is the essential guide for students preparing to enter the paramedic profession. Thoroughly Canadian, it incorporates case studies drawn from the authors' experience, as well as perspectives, legislation, and procedures that are particular to Canada. A variety of enrichment materials are included throughout the book, as is coverage on working with other members of the health care team and the importance of written reports and accurate documentation. The fifth Canadian edition features updated CPR standards reflecting the fundamental shift from 'A-B-C' to 'C'-B-A', review questions, and many new visuals. As well, the authors have worked significantly on expanding the discussions in relevant chapters concerning EMR and bariatric patients, lifting and positioning techniques including the HAINES position, and increased coverage of alternate methods of stabilizing an impaled object, as well as many other features. Their dedication to creating a current and thorough textbook is clearly reflected in the fact that this text has been a student favourite for more than a decade.
