'I can enthusiastically recommend the Manual of Clinical Paramedic Procedures as the book that I wish had been available to me when I was studying to become a paramedic.'
From the foreword by Professor Malcolm Woollard, Chair, College of Paramedics; Professor in Pre-hospital and Emergency Care & Director, Pre-hospital, Emergency & Cardiovascular Care Applied Research Group, Coventry University

Clinical procedures are a fundamental aspect of care for practitioners working in pre-hospital settings.  The Manual of Clinical Paramedic Procedures is written specifically to support the practice of paramedics, ambulance technicians, first responders and volunteer ambulance personnel.  It presents up-to-date, evidence-based expert knowledge, enabling paramedics to deliver effective, patient-focused care.

This accessible handbook provides a comprehensive exploration of core competencies and skills, looking at topics including Aseptic Technique, Airway Management, Assisted Ventilation, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, Defibrillation and External Cardiac Pacing, Observations, Pain Assessment & Management, Respiratory Therapy, Spinal Management and Venepuncture.  Each chapter provides the relevant anatomy & physiology, evidence-based rationales for each procedure, and contraindications of use.

Key features:

  • The first UK text to explore clinical procedures for paramedics
  • With further reading and illustrations throughout
  • All procedures include the rationale for the action recommended
  • Guides paramedics in the clinical application of evidence-based procedures
