From the Inside Flap
Clinical Cases in Paramedicine provides students, educators, and early career paramedics with a diverse range of detailed case studies that realistically represent the conditions, scenarios, and challenges encountered in practice. Integrating evidence-based cases and expert insights from leading academics and practitioners, this engaging resource helps readers develop appropriate decision-making skills and apply theoretical concepts to practical situations. Organised by medical presentations and body systems, the text provides readers with a systematic framework that mirrors how paramedics assess cases in the real world.
