Application/Key learning points: Although the paper is five years old, it is very comprehensive (603 pages) and covers every conceivable area related to paramedics. It also does a great job of scanning the horizon within Europe and the United Kingdom. It illustrates the changing nature of health emergencies due to complicated or disguised conditions, which might not seem life-threatening to the untrained eye – but actually are. Paramedics not only require skills to handle a vast range of health emergencies, they need to have the ability to coordinate their efforts with multiple agencies in very complex scenarios. Technological advances mean the paramedic needs to be almost as well equipped as the hospital emergency room. However, this has to be balanced with agility, speed, and decision-making in a potentially life-threatening situation. Finally, p. 603 provides a useful career succession ladder for an EMT/paramedic, and details their expected portfolio and future challenges over the next 10 years.
