Patient assessment may be the most challenging subject for EMS students to grasp, and there never seems to be enough time in the classroom for practice. Patient Assessment Practice Scenarios allows students to fine-tune their understanding of the patient assessment process. This BLS- and ALS-level text includes 150 EMS practice scenarios (75 trauma and 75 medical) that focus on the assessment process as dictated by the National Registry medical assessment and trauma assessment skill sheets. Each case is a script of an emergency call. The student and proctor (who may or may not be an instructor) may read through the case for rote practice of the assessment process, or the student may verbally work through the assessment process, with cues from the book read by the proctor. Cases may also be used as homework, in the classroom, or for self-study! This book is for BLS or ALS students who want to successfully learn patient assessment inside and out before actually working in the field, and any EMS provider who wants to refresh his or her assessment skills.

Humor gets very little respect! While references to the importance of having a sense of humor are liberally sprinkled throughout the popular media, and it is usually mentioned as one of the qualities of effective employees, it is rare to find purposeful humor practice. Humor is without a doubt the one quality that most of us agree is needed in life. However, it is rare to find serious applications on the benefits of applying humor in everyday life and in our world of work. When the federal government tried to incorporate humor into a staff development program of a federal agency, there was an outcry. It seems that humor was thought to be a waste of taxpayer money, and the program was axed. The purpose of Using Humor to Maximize Living is to affirm, sustain, and encourage people in the practice of humor not only as a personal tool to optimize a healthy life style, but also to maximize the benefits of humor in everyday life. Check out the research that includes a review on the use of humor to nurture creativity, to increase the capacity for memory retention, to support an optimal work environment, and to build safe communities that reflect the relational trust necessary for maximizing living. Author, Mary Kay Morrison teaches a 3 hour grad course in Humor Studies through the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor (AATH) at the annual conference each year: http: //www.aath.org/humor-academy"
