Discusses all aspects of emergency medicine including the medical personnel and equipment needed to successfully help the patient.
I found this book to be an excellent source for children or even adults who might be interested int the medical field. The author takes a first hand look at every aspect there may be when an emergency happens. She breaks down each piece of the puzzle so that the reader gets a good glimpse of what it takes to help out people when things go wrong.
The photos included in the book show real-life emergency workers as they are doing their jobs: 911 dispatchers, EMT, fire personnel, nurses, and lab technicians. They also show machines, medicines, and items needed. There are also historical photos that show people of old who helped doctor others even when there was no modern medicines or equipment to be had.
The author includes other ways for people to get help when it is needed: Bicycle Red Cross teams, Doctors Beyond Borders, MASH units, and doctors flying planes is just a few of those mentioned.
As I said, a good book of information if anyone wants to know about Emergencies. I give this book 5 stars.
