Medical Case Studies for the Paramedic contains 20 case studies representing a variety of medical emergencies that the paramedic may encounter in the field. Each case study begins by presenting dispatch information and a general impression of the patient upon arriving at the scene. Then, as the case progresses, pertinent patient information is provided, interspersed with a series of standardized questions designed to assess the paramedic's ability in correlating specific signs and symptoms with a particular medical condition and providing the appropriate treatment.
