  • Evidence-based clinical decision-making models to support paramedics in practice
  • Essential physiological concepts to help readers bridge the gap from principles to practice
  • Focus on the wellbeing of both the patient and the paramedic
  • Useful appendices including a professional role guide and medications commonly encountered in paramedic settings
