Books by Will Chapleau

The PARAMEDIC By Will Chapleau


Ever since the first EMT book was written, there have been two philosophies chosen by the authors for the reader: One type is to provide for the minimal required information and to meet only the minimum standards required by the profession. At the other end of the spectrum is the philosophy that is written to be all-inclusive. This will give the student reader (and ultimately patient care provider) the strongest knowledge possible. If you or your family were to become sick or injured in the middle of the night, in the blowing snow or in the cold rain, do you want the EMT taking care of you to be the very best they possibly could be or simply one who has taken the course to “get by”? This book is not a “get by” book. This book is not written by “get by” authors. This book is not edited by “get by” editors. Just open this book and look at the four editors—four better people in the United States to write such a book could not have been chosen.

PHTLS PreHospital Trauma Life Support
Will Chapleau Associate Editor and Contributor
Each new print copy of PHTLS: Prehospital Trauma Life Support, Eighth Edition also includes an access code that unlocks a complete eBook and skills videos.
PHTLS: Prehospital Trauma Life Support, Eighth Edition is the next step in the evolution of the premier global prehospital trauma education program. For three decades, PHTLS has improved the quality of trauma patient care and has saved lives. The Eighth Edition of PHTLS continues the PHTLS mission to promote excellence in trauma patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care through global education.
This legendary program was first developed by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) in the early 1980s in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS-COT). Its medical content is continuously revised and updated to reflect current, state-of-the-art knowledge and practice. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that EMS practitioners make the best decisions on behalf of their patients when given a good foundation of knowledge and key principles. The Eighth Edition of PHTLS features a new chapter, Physiology of Life and Death. This chapter creates a solid understanding of the physiology of life and pathophysiology that can lead to death. This understanding is essential for the prehospital care provider if abnormalities are to be found and addressed quickly in the trauma patient.
Clear Approach to Assessing a Trauma Patient
In the field, seconds count. PHTLS teaches and reinforces the principles of rapidly assessing a trauma patient using an orderly approach, immediately treating life-threatening problems as they are identified, and minimizing any delays in initiating transport to an appropriate destination.
