Functional Anatomy for EMS is designed to meet the 1999 National Standard Curriculum for Paramedic Programs. It is the first anatomy and physiology book written with the EMS student in mind. It also provides a strong foundation for later studies in pathophysiology. In addition, this book is richly illustrated with key concepts drawn in detail for increased comprehension.
Clinical Correlation: The "Street Smart" sections add relevancy to the material thereby enhancing retention. Starts to span the break between anatomy and physiology and clinical pathophysiology for the EMS student.
Curriculum Review: Covers all the suggested learning objectives found in the National Standard Curriculum for Paramedics.
Minimalism: Some anatomy textbooks are too comprehensive, covering material that may be important for an aspiring physician but may be too much for a paramedic student to understand and retain.
System Approach: Like the National Standard Curriculum for Paramedics, Functional Anatomy for EMS uses a systems approach.
