In 1971, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) published the first edition of Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured and built the foundation for EMS education. Today, the Tenth Edition of this gold standard training program raises the bar even higher with its world-class medical content and innovative instructional resources that meet the diverse needs of today's educators and students.

Based on the new National EMS Education Standards, the Tenth Edition offers complete coverage of every competency statement with clarity and precision in a concise format that ensures student comprehension and encourages critical thinking New cognitive and didactic material is presented, along with new skills and features, to create a robust and innovative EMT training solution.

The Tenth Edition incorporates evidence-based medical concepts to ensure that students are taught assessment and treatment modalities that will help patients in the field today.

The-Tenth Edition is built on the premise that students need a solid foundation in the basics and then appropriate reinforcement For example, the Tenth Edition provides students with a comprehensive understanding of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the human body. These concepts then are briefly reviewed within subsequent chapters, thus solidifying the foundational knowledge and offering a context when studying specific emergencies.

The Tenth Edition also applies this unique approach of concept reinforcement to Patient Assessment. This critical topic is presented in a single, comprehensive chapter, ensuring that students understand patient assessment as a single, integrated process---the way that providers actually practice it in the field Each medical and trauma chapter reinforces the patient assessment process by highlighting the unique aspects of the illness or injury.

Through evolving patient case studies in each chapter, the Tenth Edition gives students a genuine context for the application of the knowledge presented in the chapter. This approach makes it clear how all of this new information will be used to help patients in the field.
