Intermediate: Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured is the only text available that addresses the objectives in both the 1985 and 1999 EMT-Intermediate National Standard curricula. This text bridges the gap between the two curricula while still keeping them separate, making it user friendly for any instructor or student. Intermediate is the core of a teaching and learning system with features that reinforce and expand on the essential information and make information retrieval a snap.
