User’s Review:

It sits comfortably between a textbook and a reference book. Each section begins with a physiology section, followed by chapters on specific diseases / disorders. Chapters are detailed enough that you will surely come away with something new, but they are also short enough to make it digestable and easy to reference. Even the chapter on acute MI is only about 15 pages long before detailed references and review questions. Treatment options are covered in detail for the ailment being discussed along with well-documented analysis of the effectiveness of said treatments. It might be a tough read if you are not already familiar with some pathophysiology but this has to be the best patho text specifically for prehospital care. One of the few I have actually read cover to cover.

We’ve been using this book in my paramedic class along with a few other pathophysiology textbooks/references. I’m halfway through this book and convinced it’s worth its weight in gold. If your concerned about not knowing what are the “important parts” to study in your monstrous pathophysiology texts, this book solves your problems. It’s got what you “need to know ” divided into 30 sections that are each about 12 pages long. And in such a short time the author still manages to tie in the clinical relevance and the current standards in treatment. Very manageable chunks of info whether you’re a student looking to tie it all together or just need a quick review of some pathophys. As a student you’ll still need your other books, but in terms of quantity & quality material covered vs. hours spent studying, this book certainly gives you the most bang for your buck.
