It is impractical to try and learn every fact or concept in an EMS textbook. An EMS student must be able to distinguish the “must know” from the rest of the material presented. That’s what this book does: it emphasizes the “must know” content. This Crash Course is unique because it’s designed for those who are one test away from direct patient care in potentially dangerous circumstances. This publication is not a substitute for a well-written textbook or participation in a high-quality EMS training program, but rather as a bridge between your training and your certification exam. This book helps you focus on the knowledge necessary to pass the NREMT certification exam and function competently as an EMT. In EMT class, students take a test after the lesson. When you are an EMS provider, the test comes unannounced and the lesson is learned afterward. When you are not prepared for class, you risk a poor grade. When you are not prepared on the street, the patient pays the price. As you work your way through this book, imagine yourself certified, hired, and on duty for your very first shift. You have just been dispatched to the community pool. There are reports of a fire in a storage room near the pool with a number of people fleeing the area. The dispatcher tells you a lifeguard is performing CPR on a child pulled from the water during the evacuation. You don’t know if you will be the first EMS unit on the scene… You don’t know what was in the storage room or what hazards await you… You don’t know how many patients are waiting for your help, or what might be wrong with them… You don’t know if you will be caring for the pediatric drowning victim or other patients… With this scenario in mind, read through this book and ask yourself, “What do I really need to know to handle this call?” Study hard and good luck on your certification exam.
