Preface Advanced life support (ALS) and paramedic care were initially developed to treat cardiac problems in the field, specifically sudden death. Many people were suffering acute coronary events and dying before reaching the hospital. Physicians with foresight believed that rapid prehospital intervention could mean the difference between life and death for many people. The earliest origins of EMS were this early emphasis on prehospital cardiac care, which developed simultaneously kith the early advances in trauma care. Over the years, EMS proved effective in seating different types of cardiac emergencies. As EMS evolved, prehospital care has expanded to many other types of medical emergencies, including diabetic emergencies and respiratory emergencies. Now, with the advent of the 1998 U.S. DOTEMT-Paramedic National Standard Curriculum,paramedics are responsible for a much more detailed understanding of medical emergencies. The new curriculum, upon which this book is based, now addresses in detail the various types of medical emergencies. Cardiac emergencies still represent the most common reason EMS is summoned, and the discussion of cardiac emergencies remains the most comprehensive in the text. However, paramedics are expected to have a high level of understanding of emergencies involving other body systems. In this book, we will briefly review important anatomy and physiology as it applies to the emergency in question. This is followed by discussion of the relevant pathophysiology. Finally, focused pre-hospital assessment and treatment for each type of medical emergency is presented. WithParamedic Care: Principles and Practice,Volume 3,Medical Emergencies,we have followed the U.S. DOT curriculum and provided a detailed discussion of virtually all types of medical emergencies likely to be encountered in the prehospital setting. This book follows a systems approach that also parallels the various sub-specialties of internal medicine. Chapter 1 "Pulmonology"introduces the paramedic student to commonly encountered respiratory system emergencies. Emphasis is on the recognition and treatment of reactive airway diseases such as asthma. Chapter 2 "Cardiology"presents the material crucial to advanced prehospital cardiac care. The first part of the chapter reviews essential anatomy and physiology and introduces the student to electrophysiology. The second part of the chapter deals with cardiac emergencies and peripheral vascular system emergencies. Finally, the third division addresses 12-lead ECG interpretation and prehospital application of 12-lead ECG diagnostics and monitoring. Chapter 3 "Neurology"reviews the anatomy and physiology of the central and peripheral nervous system. This is followed by a detailed discussion of neurological emergencies. Chapter 4 "Endocrinology"is a detailed discussion of the endocrine system, which is an alternate control system for the body. Emphasis is placed on diabetic emergencies, as they are by far the most common endocrine emergency encountered by paramedics. Chapter 5 "Allergies and Anaphylaxis"reviews the immune system, with particular emphasis on hypersensitivity reactions (allergic reactions). The chapter emphasizes prehospital recognition and treatment of allergic reactions, particularly anaphylaxis. Chapter 6 "Gastroenterology"is a detailed discussion of emergencies arising within the gastrointestinal system. The chapter initially reviews the relevant anatomy and physiology of the gastrointestinal system and follows this with a discussion of assessment and treatment of gastroenterological emergencies. Chapter 7 "Urology and Nephrology"presents an overview of emergencies that arise from the genitourinary system and the male reproductive system. This includes a discussion of infectious emergencies, renal failure, and other problems. Chapter 8 "Toxicology and Substance Abuse"provides a detailed description of basic toxicology as it applies to prehospital care. The chapter reviews both common and uncommon causes of poisoning. In addition to accidental poisoning, there is a detailed discussion of the various drugs of abuse that are frequently seen in prehospital care. Chapter 9 "Hematology"is a comprehensive chapter covering the blood and the reticuloendothelial system. The initial part of the chapter provides a detailed discussion of the blood and blood-forming organs. This is followed by a discussion of hematological emergencies seen in emergency care. Chapter 10 "Environmental Emergencies"details the impact of the environment on the body. A review of relevant physics, chemistry, and biology is followed by a discussion of environmental emergencies. Chapter 11 "Infectious Disease"addresses an important but often overlooked aspect of prehospital care. Infectious diseases pose a risk to both the paramedic and the patient. This chapter reviews the basics of infectious disease, including disease transmission. This is followed by a discussion of infectious diseases likely to be encountered in prehospital care. Chapter 12 "Psychiatric and Behavioral Disorders"provides an overview of psychiatric and behavioral problems. Paramedics are often the first members of the health care profession that a patient, with a psychiatric disorder encounters. Because of this, paramedics must be ready to recognize and manage these emergencies appropriately. Chapter 13 "Gynecology"is a chapter devoted to the recognition and treatment of emergencies arising from the female reproductive system. The chapter provides an overview of female reproductive anatomy and physiology. This is followed by a discussion of common gynecological emergencies. Chapter 14 "Obstetrics"pertains to the reproduction of the organism. Although a normal process, paramedics are called upon to treat various emergencies arising from pregnancy. Following a review of the anatomical and physiological changes that arise from pregnancy, this chapter addresses emergencies that arise before, during, or after childbirth. This volume,Medical Emergencies,details the basic medical knowledge and skills expected of twenty-first century paramedics. This material should be mastered before undertaking actual patient care.
