Don't buy this guide

The author of this guide failed the national registry and if you listen to this guide it's clear why. Several of his statement were wrong and the guide was confusing. One of his statements were that the amount of oxygen in normal air was 78%. I stopped listening after he didn't correct that.

Lots of erroneous information

What disappointed you about EMT Basic Audio Study Guide?

Some of the information is clearly wrong. For example the author states that the air we breathe is composed of 78% oxygen and 21% nitrogen. That is clearly incorrect. Ambient air is composed of 21% oxygen and 78% nitrogen.

What could Robert Ayala have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

This book needs to be completely fact checked. I have been an EMT for years and my wife is an ER doctor. We both listened to this book in disbelief at some of the information. Additionally, the author makes statements like "insert the prongs of the nasal cannula the correct way" but never actually tells the reader which way that is.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disbelief.

Any additional comments?

This book will not help someone pass the national registry exam and is inaccurate in some of the information provided. Such glaring errors could put a patient at risk. I want my money back.

A Few fact errors

What would have made EMT Basic Audio Study Guide better?

Have it peer reviewed before published.

What could Robert Ayala have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Review the information provided... ie. % of oxygen in atmosphere might not be 78% as stated in audible book. Great intent... however I strongly suggest the 'facts' stated in this book it gets reviewed and scrutinised as well as the future episodes in this series.

What three words best describe Robert Ayala’s performance?

Great voice, easy to listen too. great Tone & pacing.

about 5 or 10 minutes of this is helpful

this guy Rambles and I don't think anything he says will help you pass a National Registry. this was promising and had my hopes up. And the other versions are narrated buy a lady with an incredibly thick accent. don't spend your money keep looking for something else.

incorrect information

First 10 minutes of the book and three things he stated was incorrect (decompensated shock, breathing rate of an infant and respiratory failure). I know this guy is trying to help people pass the NREMT but this is the opposite of helping.

Inaccurate

This guy says he failed the NREMT test 3 times and I now see why. The information that he provides in this study guide is inaccurate. Be weary of this and use the information from your text because this will steer you in the wrong direction.

Meh

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not an effective study tool. Weak content, annoying voice. This is not the work of an educator, it's someone scraping by to pass a test

Several incorrect statements inconsistent with NREMT

User beware: while there are several good points regarding airway management, there are a number of points where the narrator makes statements inconsistent with NREMT guidelines. I’m a 12 year EMT using this to prep for a recertification Test and caught the errors, and verified the inaccuracies by cross-checking with EMT texts or NREMT guidelines.
