Hello all,

first aid and kits seems to be a hot topic at the moment. As such, I was going through my old trainer files and came across a Red Cross First Aid- Responding to Emergencies text. It is a 2005 revision, so would be fairly current except for the updated ARC CPR guidelines. Otherwise a very handy text book, with plenty of indepth info on how to respond do many differing emergencies.

It is free to anyone that wants it, first in best dressed, Ill even post it for you. It would be a shame to see it go in the bin.

Just finished reading the story about Dieter Dengler. If anyone needed first aid, this fella did.

Kim,

Just googled this fellow, what a man. Not an easy task to overcome his.

I saw the television job they did with him. Classic post traumatic stress disorder. I relate the story to anyone who will listen. His home in Sanfransisco was something else. No locks and food hoarded to the brim so he could sleep at night.

Audy Murphy slept at night after the war with a pistol under the pillow for the same reason. Heroism has its price it seems.

The CPR protocol changed in February 2006 so your book is out of date in this regard. As for the rest, it's probably current with the possible exception of the treatment of an asthma attack

The CPR guidelines change every year or so. I struggle to keep up and i work in an emergency department! As long as you remember that early chest compressions are most important, even more so than breaths, then you are doing a good job.
