When a medical emergency situation occurs in everyday life, are you ready to face it? It is highly recommended for routine preparedness that everyone, from adolescents to the elderly, take a certified course in first aid and/or CPR. The First Aid Study Brief is designed to help you understand some fundamental facts, guiding principles, and actions you should and should not take in providing assistance to someone in need of help or first aid. This gguide begins with an interesting bit of history and describes several different first aid disciplines that exist. It covers the three P's of first aid and explains the Doctor's ABCD action plan, a set of simple steps to follow in the event of an emergency. Included are practical recommendations for steps you should take when confronted with an emergency situation, techniques for bandaging and splinting different types of injuries, and guidelines on whether or not and how to move a sick or injured person based on the situation encountered. Detailed quick reference sections on common health situations that require first aid are categorized into trauma related conditions, accident or incident related conditions and life-threatening conditions. Each health condition is concisely defined and described, including signs and symptoms to be aware of and look for along with the recommended first aid intervention plan that is applicable in that particular situation. An illustrated section on administering emergency medications is another beneficial feature of this guide.
