EMS Tips

Books for the Everyday EMS Reader

During much of 2010 I have been reading my way through the genre of “EMS Literature.” Here are my picks for the Everyday EMS Reader on your shopping list (or for your own personal reading list). Some are recently published while others are EMS classics.

1. [amazon-product text=”Paramedic” type=”text”]0804116148[/amazon-product] by Peter Canning

2. [amazon-product text=”My Ambulance Education” type=”text”]1554074479[/amazon-product]by Joseph Clark, PhD

3. [amazon-product text=”Population 485″ type=”text”]0061363502[/amazon-product] by Michael Perry

4. [amazon-product text=”Frantic” type=”text”]033045241X[/amazon-product] by Katherine Howell

Two books, that I have not yet read yet, that are high on my list for 2011 are [amazon-product text=”En Route” type=”text”]1427799717[/amazon-product] by Kelly Grayson and [amazon-product text=”Rescue 471″ type=”text”]0804118825[/amazon-product] by Peter Canning
