The Fourth Edition of PHARMACOLOGY FOR THE EMS PROVIDER is a clear and thorough text ideal for both Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) and Paramedic levels. This book is based on the pharmacology section of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations National EMS Education Standards and reflects current Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) curricula. Provided throughout the book are detailed profiles of pre-hospital medications, including mechanism of action, indications, contraindications, precautions, routes and dosages, side effects, and EMS considerations. Appendices also present information on herbal drugs, common home medications, and street drugs EMS providers may encounter outside of the hospital setting. This wealth of in-depth material logically organized for effective learning and carefully tailored to national standards and curricula, makes this practical guide an invaluable resource for anyone pursuing training or certification in an EMS field.
