Trauma Case Studies for the Paramedic contains 20 case studies representing a variety of trauma emergencies, some more life-threatening than others, that the paramedic may encounter in the field. Each case study begins by presenting dispatch information and a general impression of the patient upon arrival at the scene. Then, as the case progresses, pertinent patient information is provided, interspersed with a series of questions designed to test paramedics' knowledge of the patient's specific injury or injuries.
