Description

The First Aid Manual, revised 10th edition for 2016 is the most up to date, fully packed and comprehensive guide to first aid. Used as the official training manual for the UK’s leading first aid organisations this book is also suitable for everyone and could be a life saver.

  • The only fully authorised first aid guide in the UK
  • Endorsed by St John Ambulance, St Andrew’s First Aid and the British Red Cross
  • Contains the very latest guidelines on resuscitation, unresponsiveness, how to help someone who is drowning and how to treat snake bites
  • Shows you what to do using step-by-step advice across all aspects of emergency first aid and life saving first aid for babies and children
  • Covers the treatment of over 100 different conditions from splinters and sprained ankles to strokes and how to use a defibrillator
  • Clear photography shot in-situ to reflect real life issues and situations.

All the advice in the revised edition has been reviewed and updated. The language has also been simplified and the steps are even clearer. A key change to this edition is the change of the word ‘unconscious’ to ‘unresponsive’. Changing from ‘unconscious’ to ‘unresponsive’ replaces a medical term with one that is easier for the first aider to understand and so helps turn the science into clear guidelines to improve outcomes.

In addition to this update, the guide also includes the following changes:

  • More emphasis placed on pressure when dealing with blood loss rather than raising the injury above the heart to slow down the blood flow
  • The procedure for treating a choking adult or child has been simplified
  • The process of dealing with chest injuries has been simplified
  • Updated advice on treating a diabetic who suffers a hypoglycaemic episode
  • More emphasis on the importance of using speaker phone/hands free when administrating first aid so that you can talk to the emergency services at the same time as dealing with the casualty
  • New advice on dealing with snake bites.
