This book is fully updated to meet current UK guidelines and paramedic scope of practice and offers a complete and practical understanding of pharmacology in the prehospital setting. This first UK edition provides a unique problem-based approach to ensure that you are prepared to effectively administer the drugs your patients need. Clinical scenarios present case information just as you will learn it in the classroom and encounter it in practice.

By placing each drug in its relevant context, this text covers the essential drugs which you should be aware of as a paramedic as well as those drugs for which it might be useful to have a broader understanding. It teaches you to identify the proper drug for a specific patient in a specific situation. Chapters will be of interest to aspiring and practising paramedics as well as anyone wanting to understand more about emergency medication.
