  • Up-to-date content that accurately represents current prehospital patient care
  • Unique subject matter for ski and bicycle patrollers, including extrication, that meets and exceeds the National Emergency Medical Responder criteria, and combines the disciplines of urban EMS and wilderness medical rescue

  • Review questions at the end of each section and chapter that allow students to evaluate knowledge they have gained
  • Specific objectives that tell students at the outset what they are expected to learn for each chapter
