Completely revised and updated, this new edition of Mosby's EMT-Intermediate Textbook incorporates the newest U.S. DOT EMT-I National Standard Curriculum. It provides information on all requisite U.S. DOT topics for EMT-I, exceeding U.S. DOT objectives for EMT-I training in many areas to provide a thoroughly comprehensive approach. Additionally, treatment guidelines for emergency cardiovascular care have been updated to reflect the most current 2000 guidelines for emergency cardiovascular care. Skill steps are presented in an order similar to the National Registry of EMTs skill testing sheets, making it easy for readers to prepare for state and national testing.
