Clinical Cases in Paramedicine provides students, educators, and early career paramedics with a diverse range of detailed case studies that realistically represent the conditions, scenarios, and challenges encountered in practice. Integrating evidence-based cases and expert insights from leading academics and practitioners, this engaging resource helps readers develop appropriate decision-making skills and apply theoretical concepts to practical situations. Organised by medical presentations and body systems, the text provides readers with a systematic framework that mirrors how paramedics assess cases in the real world. 

Throughout the text, cases of varying levels of complexity are designed to meet the needs of Case-Based Learning (CBL) and Problem-Based Learning (PBL) curricula used in paramedic training programmes worldwide. Each chapter contains six case studies - introductory, intermediate, and advanced - and features interactive learning activities, discussion questions, practical tips, and authoritative guidance aligned to national and international best-practice standards. Case studies illustrate scenarios related to trauma, medical emergencies, obstetrics, respiratory and cardiac events, minor injuries, drug overdoses, and many others. This comprehensive resource:  

  • Features case studies of varying lengths and degrees of complexity to suit different readers, from student to professional  
  • Suitable for use in many international programmes 
  • Offers chapter introductions and summaries, practice questions, and additional online resources  
  • Contains clinical, legal, ethical, cultural, remote and rural case studies
