    Nancy Caroline's Emergency Care in the Streets, Ninth Edition is the newest evolution of the premier paramedic education training program. This legendary paramedic textbook was first developed by Dr. Nancy Caroline in the early 1970s and transformed paramedic education. Today, lead editors Bob Elling and Barb Aehlert, along with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, are proud to continue this legacy and set the new gold standard for the paramedics of tomorrow.

    The Ninth Edition offers cutting-edge, evidence-based content that meets or exceeds the most current scientific recommendations developed by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) and the ECC Guidelines established by the American Heart Association and other resuscitation councils around the world. Clear chapter objectives align with the 2019 National EMS Scope of Practice Model and 2021 EMS Education Standards.

    Some of the key high-level updates to the Ninth Edition include the following:

    • Language carefully reviewed throughout text to ensure gender neutrality, racial inclusivity, and nonstigmatizing descriptions of patient conditions
    • NEW Street Smarts boxes throughout the text to emphasize the "soft skills" expected of today's paramedics
    • Images updated to reflect appropriate PPE in the current COVID-19 setting
    • Added emphasis on current spinal motion restriction guidelines
      Thoroughly reviewed and updated references, statistics, and case studies
    • CPR and ACLS algorithms updated throughout text to reflect the current AHA guidelines
