For those studying for the certification exam for the EMS subspecialty, our best information is that the content for this test will be drawn from published texts that the praciticing EMS physician would use to help guide decisions in EMS medicine. NAEMSP's four-volume text should be a very important source.
The following are some of the texts likely to meet these guidelines.
NAEMSP 4-Volume Text EMS Medical Direction – Primary Resource Text
Clinical Aspects of Prehospital Medicine
Medical Oversight of EMS
Evaluation and Improving Quality in EMS
Special Operations Medical Support
ACEP Principles of EMS Systems – Krohmer and Brennan
Disaster Medicine: Comprehensive Principles and Practices – Koenig and Schultz
Tactical Medicine Essentials – Campbell, Heiskell, Smith, and Wipfler
Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine
Rosen's Emergency Medicine
Roberts and Hedges' Clinical Procedures in Emergency Medicine
