Amid the increasing challenges healthcare systems face during the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become even more pressing to train new Emergency Medical Services clinicians into high-quality and science based healthcare providers. A new textbook published by Springer Nature and led by Adj. Lect. Christian Ventura aims to address this critical need. Ventura is the Co-Principal Investigator of the EMS Pandemic Response Research Lab with Dr. Barnita Haldar, and the National Association of EMTs’ State Advocacy Coordinator for Vermont. He also serves as the Chairman of the Board for the Health Advocacy and Medical Exploration Society and on the Emergency Cardiovsacular Care Committee for the American Heart Association. Ventura has openly called for the need to re-evaluate clinical practices used in the EMS setting by conducting more scientific research. In a recent article by the Journal of Emergency Medical Services, Ventura says there is still much work to be done to ensure EMTs and Paramedics carry out patient-centered, compassionate, and evidence-based care, and that many 911-services were catastrophically overwhelmed due to systemic structure issues according to a recent study by Ventura’s lab.The Emergency Medical Responder: Training and Succeeding as an EMT/EMR is medically reviewed by Dr. Pilar Nava-Parada, and is the first textbook of its kind to include COVID-19 considerations, and is structured to address specific organ systems and its emergency pathology in a way that promises to be memorable and interesting.- Authored from the perspective of EMTs, scientists, and instructors, all of whom have collaborated previously as leading experts on EMS COVID-19 pandemic response in the United States with combined teaching experience of thousands of EMS students
Focuses on patient-centered and evidence-based care consistent with National EMS Curriculum standards
- Compatible with emergency medical technician (EMT) and emergency medical responder (EMR) courses as the primary classroom text consistent with National EMS Curriculum Standards
Set to be released in January 2021, it can now be preordered through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other major bookstore retailers. Aside from conducting scientific research, Ventura works as the Training Center Director for First Branch Ambulance, a rural EMS ambulance service in Chelsea, VT.
