Overview
Welcome to the gold standard in critical care transport training. Published in conjunction with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), and endorsed by the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) and the International Association of Flight and Critical Care Providers (IAFCCP), Critical Care Transport, Second Edition, offers cutting-edge content relevant to any health care provider training in critical care transport.

Like no other textbook in this market, the Second Edition thoroughly prepares medical professionals to function as competent members of a critical care team by covering the material that everyone--paramedics, nurses, physicians, and specialty crew--needs to know to operate effectively in the prehospital critical care environment.

This book meets the curricula of major critical care training programs, including University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). It covers both ground and flight transport, and meets the 2015 CPR/ECC Guidelines and the objectives of critical care transport certification exams such as the Certified Flight Paramedic (FP-C) exam administered by the Board for Critical Care Transport Paramedic Certification.

Content includes information specific to prehospital critical care transport, such as flight physiology, lab analysis, hemodynamic monitoring, and specialized devices such as the intra-aortic balloon pump. Standard topics such as airway management, trauma, and pharmacology are covered in the context of critical care. Chapters have been authored by leading critical care professionals across the country and represent the most current, state-of-the-art information on management of critical care patients.

New to the Second Edition:

Sample fetal monitoring strips
Updated information on transport choreography
Enhanced information on capnography and troubleshooting transport ventilators
A standalone chapter on patient safety
