In 1971, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) published the first edition of Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured and laid the foundation of EMS training. Today, the Eleventh Edition transforms how EMS education is delivered throughout the world and helps develop world-class EMS providers around the globe. Based on the National EMS Education Standards and the 2015 CPR/ECC Guidelines, the Eleventh Edition offers complete coverage of every competency statement with clarity and precision in a concise format that ensures students' 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. Today, the AAOS suite of EMS educational resources, from first aid and CPR to critical care transport, is the gold standard in training programs by offering exceptional content and instructional resources that meet the diverse needs of today's educators and students. Current State-of-the-Art Medical Content The Eleventh Edition aligns with current medical standards--from PHTLS to NASEMSO--and incorporates evidence-based medical concepts to ensure students and instructors have accurate, insightful interpretation of medical science as it applies to prehospital medicine today. Application to Real-World EMS Through evolving patient case studies in each chapter, the Eleventh Edition gives students real-world context to apply the knowledge gained in the chapter, clarifying how the information is used to care for patients in the field, and pushing students to engage in critical thinking and discussion. A Foundation for Life The Eleventh Edition is built on the premise that students need a solid foundation in the basics and then appropriate reinforcement. The Eleventh Edition provides students with a comprehensive understanding of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, and medical terminology. Concepts are briefly reviewed within related subsequent chapters, solidifying the foundational knowledge and offering a context when studying specific emergencies. Patient Assessment, a critical topic, is presented as a single, comprehensive chapter, to ensure students understand patient assessment as a single, integrated process--the way providers actually practice it in the field. Core concepts of Patient Assessment are reinforced in clinical chapters, where the unique aspects of the illness or injury are highlighted.

Based on concepts of active learning, student engagement, and hybrid course design, the EMT Flipped Classroom serves as a course roadmap to provide a cooperative and successful learning experience. The flipped classroom model dedicates class time to resolving misconceptions through collaborative problem-solving activities, elevating knowledge into application-level tasks and skills practice, and increasing engagement and confidence. Students interact with primary source content outside of the classroom to develop foundational knowledge. The EMT Flipped Classroom delivers primary source content in a variety of engaging formats, including an Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured, Eleventh Edition eBook and Interactive and Virtual Mentor Lectures. The course features student-directed courseware, including problem-solving activities, peer-to-peer activities, and student coaching, with competency checks throughout. Sample activities include: Build It: Students use different objects and materials to build models relating to the lesson topic. Trauma Tango: Students memorize and practice performing the steps of patient assessment by creating correlating dance moves. Rap Songs: Students create rap songs based on medical terminology or medication that EMTs administer, and present their songs to the class. Goo On You: Students put on personal protective equipment (PPE) and are squirted with various types of "goo" to show the importance of properly donning and doffing PPE. Challenge Scenario: Students act out a complex scenario that contains multiple issues and requires strong problem-solving skills. EMT Flipped Classroom is designed to help educators shift from the role of lecturer to the role of guide and facilitator, allowing traditional instructor-centered classrooms to transform into student-centered learning environments where instructors can have an even greater impact on student outcomes.
