Written by expert academics and educators, Brett Williams and Linda Ross, this essential resource encourages readers to see the links between the pathophysiology of a disease, how this creates the signs and symptoms perceived by the patient and how these need to be managed in the out-of-hospital environment.

Additionally, Paramedic Principles and Practice 2e will arm readers with not only technical knowledge and expertise, but also the non-technical components of providing emergency care-including professional attitudes and behaviours, clinical competence, teamwork and communication skills.

Case studies are strategically used to contextualise the principles and step readers through possible scenarios that may be encountered and, importantly, reveal the process of reaching a safe and effective management plan. The case studies initially describe the pathology and typical presentation of a particular condition and progress to more-complex and less-typical scenarios where the practitioner faces increasing uncertainty.

Key Features
