as title states, looking for a book recommendation for those looking to go flight medic
thanks in advance!
thanks in advance!
fair response lol, i should have been more specific.Test prep? Autobiographical? Biographical? Fictional? Science-Fictional?
kinda figured, but was hoping their might be a commonly recommended book.Honestly, that’s a pretty loaded question. Tons of books and test preps have been beaten to death on this sub-forum already.
In today’s over-saturated critical care prep world you literally have endless materials cut, copy, and pasted to said company’s teaching methods.
Personally speaking I don’t recommend any one specific tes prep platform as I’ve done several and each had their pros and cons.
The one course, or course type I do recommend—if it’s financially feasible—would be a semesters-long one like Creighton or U of F. Neither are cheap, but they are about as in depth as one could ask for.
Or, you could just start with basic FOAM-ED podcasts and work your way out from there. There’s literally tons of material, free, affordable, moderately priced, or expensive.
There’s a ton on Apple, yes. FOAM-ed just mean Free Open Access Medical EDucation.this foam ed podcast you speak of is it on apples podcast app?
awesome i will look into your recommendationsI took both IA Med and FlightBridgeED online. If you get hired with one of the large air ambulance companies, you'll be required to complete FlightBridgeED whether you have an advance cert or not. I heard The ResQ Shop sounds good, but I haven't tried it. These are online video classes mostly death by power point. In my opinion, IA Med is less dry than FlightBridgeED. Both IA Med and FlightBridgeED were weak on hemodynamics. IA Med arterial blood gas section is easier to follow. FlightBridgeED is slightly more comprehensive with labs/electrolytes.
The ResQShop is by William Wingfield, author of ACE SAT. ACE SAT is just a test practice book. I felt FP-C was most similar to the ACE SAT practice questions.
Back to Basics is another commonly recommended book. Some of its CAMTS questions are outdated.
Kyle Faudree from IA Med put together Flight Paramedic Certification: A Comprehensive Study Guide. If you pay for IA Med, this is essentially the IA Med resources printed on paper. I don't feel it was that comprehensive, but was simple, easy to follow, and easy to reference. It's kind of the Dubin Dale book for flight paramedics, like almost like a children's picture book.
FlightBridgeED has several books: one for the FP-C, two on ventilators, and one practice test book for C-NPT.

They were okay. The Prehospital Ventilator ventilator strategy is similar is similar to a large air ambulance company's vent strategy. I felt like the Ventilator Management Advance Concept books was kind of sloppily put together. Just like their online class, sometimes hard to follow and lacks pictures.
If you're not sick of ventilators, The Ventilator Book is another vent book. The beginning of the book lists a couple of ventilator strategies based on patient's condition then goes over why the author use those ventilator strategies.
If you have a Facebook, FOAMfrat is kinda nice to follow for like short daily topics.
