Beyond the basics: the art of critical thinking. Part 1



Beyond the basics: the art of critical thinking. Part 1



Ems Magazine 37(4): 87-91; Quiz 92-3



This two-part series has addressed the critical thinking process both through discussion and demonstration in the case studies presented here. Indeed, the process involves all of the decisions we make in assessment and treatment. It is not limited to advanced providers. With the exception of the ECG analysis mentioned earlier, all other decisions were based on history and physical exam and can be performed by any provider. Thinking is not limited to a particular license or certification level. We hope these articles have helped you cross a bridge into stronger critical decision-making and farther along the journey of being a true prehospital clinician at any level of certification.
