In 1971, the American
Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) published the first edition of
Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured and laid the
foundation of EMS training. Today, the Eleventh Edition transforms how
EMS education is delivered throughout the world and helps develop
world-class EMS providers around the globe.
Based on the National
EMS Education Standards and the 2015 CPR/ECC Guidelines, the Eleventh
Edition offers complete coverage of every competency statement with
clarity and precision in a concise format that ensures students’
comprehension and encourages critical thinking. New cognitive and
didactic material is presented, along with new skills and features, to
create a robust and innovative EMT training solution.
Today, the AAOS
suite of EMS educational resources, from first aid and CPR to critical
care transport, is the gold standard in training programs by offering
exceptional content and instructional resources that meet the diverse
needs of today’s educators and students.
The Eleventh Edition aligns with current medical
standards―from PHTLS to NASEMSO―and incorporates evidence-based medical
concepts to ensure students and instructors have accurate, insightful
interpretation of medical science as it applies to prehospital medicine
Application to Real-World EMS
Through evolving patient case
studies in each chapter, the Eleventh Edition gives students real-world
context to apply the knowledge gained in the chapter, clarifying how
the information is used to care for patients in the field, and pushing
students to engage in critical thinking and discussion.
The Eleventh Edition is built on the premise that students
need a solid foundation in the basics and then appropriate
reinforcement. The Eleventh Edition provides students with a
comprehensive understanding of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, and
medical terminology. Concepts are briefly reviewed within related
subsequent chapters, solidifying the foundational knowledge and offering
a context when studying specific emergencies.
Assessment, a critical topic, is presented as a single, comprehensive
chapter, to ensure students understand patient assessment as a single,
integrated process―the way providers actually practice it in the field.
Core concepts of Patient Assessment are reinforced in clinical chapters,
where the unique aspects of the illness or injury are
