    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Feb 1, 2013 4:02:15 PM

    Law Enforcement ResponderDoody's Review Service recently reviewed Law Enforcement Responder: Principles of Emergency Medicine, Rescue, and Force Protection by Randy G. Stair, Dwight A. Polk, Geoff Shapiro, and Nelson Tang. According to Anna L. Jarrett, PhD, ACNP-ACNS, from the University of Arkansas,

    "The book is written specifically for law enforcement responders, and the authors have varied backgrounds: one has Secret Service expertise; another is a paramedic program director, another teaches emergency medicine in a university school of medicine, and the last one coordinates operational medicine programs. The best part of the book is the topic layout. The 27 chapters are grouped into eight sections on the LER, patient assessment, trauma, resuscitation, and special populations and missions. The illustrations, tables, and figures add much to the quality of the book. This is a unique, high-quality book. It has additional instructor resources, making it an ideal textbook for law enforcement courses. I am not aware of any comparable book."

    Thanks, Doody's! Interested in learning more? Preview a sample chapter or visit our website.
