American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS)
Jones – Bartlett Learning
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) established the groundwork for emergency medical services (EMS) education by publishing the first edition of Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured in 1971. Today, the Eleventh Edition revolutionizes the manner in which EMS education is provided all over the world and contributes to the development of EMS providers of world-class caliber everywhere.
The Eleventh Edition, which is based on the National EMS Education Standards and the 2015 CPR/ECC Guidelines, provides comprehensive coverage of every competency statement. This coverage is presented with clarity and precision in a format that is succinct, which ensures that students comprehend the material and encourages critical thinking. A powerful and forward-thinking solution for EMT training is created through the presentation of new cognitive and didactic content, as well as new skills and features.
The AAOS suite of educational resources for emergency medical services (EMS), which includes everything from first aid and CPR to critical care transport, has become the industry standard for training programs because it provides exceptional content and instructional resources that are tailored to meet the varied requirements of today’s teachers and students.
Current Content Representing the State of the Art in Medicine
The Eleventh Edition is aligned with current medical standards from PHTLS to NASEMSO and incorporates evidence based medical concepts. This ensures that both students and instructors have access to an accurate and insightful interpretation of medical science as it relates to prehospital medicine in the modern era.
Application to the EMS of the Real World
Students are provided with a real-world context in which to apply the knowledge gained in each chapter of the Eleventh Edition by means of evolving patient case studies included in each chapter. These case studies clarify how the information is utilized to provide care for patients in the field, while also encouraging students to engage in critical thinking and discussion.
A Crucial Part of Everyday Life
The eleventh edition is based on the idea that students require a strong foundation in the fundamentals, followed by appropriate reinforcement of what they have learned. Students are given a complete understanding of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, as well as medical terminology, through the use of the Eleventh Edition. The foundational knowledge is strengthened by providing a context when studying specific emergencies, which is accomplished through the brief review of concepts in subsequent chapters that are related to them.
Because patient assessment is such an important topic, it is covered in its entirety in a single chapter for the purpose of ensuring that students understand the process of patient assessment as a cohesive whole, similar to how it is actually carried out by medical professionals in the field. The fundamental ideas of Patient Assessment are drilled into the student’s head in the clinical chapters, which focus on the peculiarities of the disease or injury being discussed.
