This pocket reference was developed to provide translations for Emergency Medical Services personnel and to assist individuals in their care and treatment of Spanish-speaking individuals regardless of their Spanish-language skills. Appropriate for use by all provider levels, from First Responder to EMT-Paramedic, most questions are designed to elicit a yes or no response. Included in each section are columns designating the English and Spanish translations, a phonetic translation of the Spanish, and a column called Point Plus. In communicating with the Spanish-speaking patient, as with other languages, a great deal of information is conveyed by gestures and body language. A pared-down version of the translation, using appropriate pointing and/or gesturing can often attain the same result as the full question or statement. It is an ideal guide for all EMS responders to have on the scene. Appropriate for use by all provider levels, from First Responder to EMT-Paramedic.
