Since I’m going to be turning my patient care report into an abridged Field Emergency handbook type thing, I’m going to need to make sure that I have a wide range of possible trauma/illnesses that one may encounter in the world featured in this mini book.
I have my giant textbook from the certification class that is turning out to be a huge help in this process–both by giving me ideas for which emergencies to include and the symptoms, presentation, treatment, etc. of them. The book is insanely detailed and enthralling, so I’m thrilled that I get to pore over it for this project. It separates each body system and their various potential ailments into chapters (the book itself is incredibly organized into the two main types of emergencies and then the different sub-units of each), and this set up will help me determine what is important to feature in my own project.
The book will also include a glossary/terminology page where I’ll go over applicable and crucial vocabulary–the certification class I took gave me access to some excellent virtual tools that will help me immensely in this endeavor.
