As an emergency care professional, you save lives every day. And, while physicians will order various medications to be administered, he or she may not know the strengths or amounts of medication you have available in your ambulance. You, therefore, must convert what you have on hand into an equivalent dose to match the physician's orders. Paramedic Med-Math Made Easy provides step-by-step instructions for the most common, every day formulas you'll use in the field. In its easy to understand format, you'll quickly grasp how to convert pounds to kilograms, teaspoons to milliliters, or grams to milligrams. With the equivalents and formulas laid out, Paramedic Med-Math Made Easy then provides examples showing how formulas are used, along with guidelines to help you understand each calculation. Also included are practical-application problems and their answers. Each scenario illustrates how the application or conversion should be set up, so you can clearly see and understand how the calculation works and where pitfalls may occur. Admittedly, you can choose among several math formula methods to calculate proper doses to administer. Most important, though, is deciding what method works best for you-the one that prevents you from making any errors. Paramedic Med-Math Made Easy will help you do just that.

Today our emergency care system faces an epidemic of crowded emergency departments, patients boarding in hallways waiting to be admitted, and daily ambulance diversions. Hospital-Based Emergency Care addresses the difficulty of balancing the roles of hospital-based emergency and trauma care, not simply urgent and lifesaving care, but also safety net care for uninsured patients, public health surveillance, disaster preparation, and adjunct care in the face of increasing patient volume and limited resources. This new book considers the multiple aspects to the emergency care system in the United States by exploring its strengths, limitations, and future challenges. The wide range of issues covered includes: • The role and impact of the emergency department within the larger hospital and health care system. • Patient flow and information technology. • Workforce issues across multiple disciplines. • Patient safety and the quality and efficiency of emergency care services. • Basic, clinical, and health services research relevant to emergency care. • Special challenges of emergency care in rural settings. Hospital-Based Emergency Care is one of three books in the Future of Emergency Care series. This book will be of particular interest to emergency care providers, professional organizations, and policy makers looking to address the deficiencies in emergency care systems.

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is a critical component of our nation's emergency and trauma care system, providing response and medical transport to millions of sick and injured Americans each year. At its best, EMS is a crucial link to survival in the chain of care, but within the last several years, complex problems facing the emergency care system have emerged. Press coverage has highlighted instances of slow EMS response times, ambulance diversions, trauma center closures, and ground and air medical crashes. This heightened public awareness of problems that have been building over time has underscored the need for a review of the U.S. emergency care system. Emergency Medical Services provides the first comprehensive study on this topic. This new book examines the operational structure of EMS by presenting an in-depth analysis of the current organization, delivery, and financing of these types of services and systems. By addressing its strengths, limitations, and future challenges this book draws upon a range of concerns: • The evolving role of EMS as an integral component of the overall health care system. • EMS system planning, preparedness, and coordination at the federal, state, and local levels. • EMS funding and infrastructure investments. • EMS workforce trends and professional education. • EMS research priorities and funding. Emergency Medical Services is one of three books in the Future of Emergency Care series. This book will be of particular interest to emergency care providers, professional organizations, and policy makers looking to address the deficiencies in emergency care systems.
