In 1971, the AAOS published the first emergency medical technician (EMT) textbook, Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured, and laid the foundation for emergency medical services (EMS) training. Today, the Eleventh Edition—also known as the “Orange Book” for its trademark orange cover—transforms how EMS education is delivered throughout the world to train EMS providers.
Based on the National EMS Education Standards
and the 2015 Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiac Care,
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. The text is accompanied by a suite of student and instructor resources, including a student workbook, interactive eBook, audiobook, test prep exercises, test items, interactive lectures, PPTs, videos, animations, and simulations.
