Book Overview

While the emphasis of the book is directed toward applications in life and health sciences, the author purposefully chose many examples that would be accessible and understandable to any science student, including those in the physical and environmental sciences. The subject matter in the book requires no "prerequisite" knowledge beyond four years of high school math and science. Therefore, it is possible to use this book in classes with freshmen...

Perfect for the Ski Patrol OEC Course

This book is designed to work directly with the OEC course. It is not a stand-alone textbook. It is the perfect OEC study tool, nothing more, nothing less.

Great book for Outdoor Emergency Care

I want to state one thing first, OEC (Outdoor Emergency Care) was created for/by National Ski Patrol. The design of this care is to manage the injury and send to the next level care depending on an injury. It was made to go along with class room training. OEC is a First Responder/College level course. I read one of the other reviews and I can tell that they bought the book to try to teach themselves by by reading it. It does cover a lot and is detailed, but I compare it to any other college class where there is assigned reading and lab work. With out one, the other is harder. I highly recommend the OEC training for anyone that camps, hikes, skis, snowboards, bikes, rafting, or other outdoor activity.

Great resource for your OEC course.

As an Outdoor Emergency Care Instructor and owner of my own training agency, I looked forward to receiving my copy of Outdoor Emergency Care, 4th Edition. After reviewing the new textbook, I found the layout and scope of information greatly exceeded my expectations. The new color photos, illustrations, skill drills, charts, box features, scenarios, and end of chapter reviews are outstanding and are a tremendous improvement, compared to the previous edition. I feel that by my choosing to use the OEC, 4th Edition text in my outdoor emergency education courses, my students are now able to better understand injury and illness' recognize signs and symptoms, perform a thorough patient assessment, provide treatment, and evaluate transportation considerations. The text re-introduces anatomy and physiology in many key chapters. This A & P review assists my students in building, the much needed, strong emergency care foundation. I have also found the step-by-step skill drills throughout the text to be very helpful in reviewing the hands-on portion of my course. The textbook is only the very beginning of the OEC program. Some of my students opt to purchase the student workbook and all have access to the free OEC web site, which we all have found to be a great resource. I also find the OEC Instructor's Toolkit CD and Test-bank CD an invaluable time-saving resource, allowing me to add my own questions, alter existing questions, and create answer keys. The PowerPoint presentations, lesson outlines, and image bank on the instructor's CD allows me to customize the power-point presentations to reflect local areas of interest and or potential dangers. If you are involved in teaching outdoor emergency care or interested in learning more about the topic on your own, I strongly recommend using the Outdoor Emergency Care, 4th Edition. The OEC program has made a positive impact on my course. But more importantly, the students using this text like it and have benefited as well.
