first responders.

This book gave short and very relevant stories and really helpful information to all types of first responders. I put it on our library shelf and it's been going out on loan.

Life Support

It has been argued that medicine, and by extension paramedicine, is both an art and a science. Gregory Henry, M.D., President Emeritus of ACEP, once described emergency medicine as "the occasional application of a scientific principle to the meeting of human need." Seen from this perspective, Mike Rubin's excellent book delves into all aspects of prehospital care delivery.
