Format: Paperback
This is a great little booklet to prepare people to respond correctly in an emergency situation. For each situation, Dr. Handal lists "Do" items and "Don't" items. A lot of the "Don't" items are what people may have previously been told to do, but modern medicine says that it's not helpful. One example of a "Don't" is "Don't put rubbing alcohol on the skin of someone who is suffering from heat exhaustion" (a traditional method). For the curious, there is no explanation of WHY to do or not do something, but the booklet is meant to be a reference guide, not a medical textbook.

The strength of this book is its format and content. The key is on the cover-Read it before you need it. The ourstanding credentials of the author and the advice she gives is right on. Portable format so you can always have it with you. Helps decide what you can do at home and when you need to seek more advanced help. Definite buy so you'll have it when you need it.

Great idea to publish up-to-date first aid information in Kindle format. Replaces that old heavy reference book. Browse subjects to be prepared.

By Robert Quinones, DO on July 23, 2011
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent reference. Everyone should read it and keep it close at hand. It's perfect for parents, grandparents, babysitters, teachers, and anyone who works with the public.

It's easy to read and provides practical, concrete guidelines for treating injuries. The "Do Not" and "What To Do" guidelines are particularly helpful, especially in an emergency. The "Do Not" section includes lots of great tips that may prevent a first responder from causing additional harm by following his/her initial instincts.

I highly recommend that you "Read It Before You Need It", as the good Doc suggests.

Format: Paperback
We recently purchased these manuals in French, English, and Spanish as a quick, first aid guide for our company's international project sites. We operate in well over 40 countries and Dr. Handal's "Doc's First Aid Guide," is an easy-to-read, compact, and comprehensive guide to a myriad of ailments and health issues that may arise no matter where you may be located. We feel that this manual will better equip our personnel to deal with daily first aid issues that may come to pass and we highly recommend this guide to others.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book and I will be carrying one in my car and in my purse and will place another copy in my home. It succintly descibes how to identify an emergency and then how to deal with it before medical attention arrives. It will save many lives.It will stop the fear that freezes one into inactivity and paralysis in a critical situation. I suggest everyone read this and have it handy and send a copy to all your loved ones. The instructions are so clear and so relevent.

As a physician, I recommend this to everyone.

This easily read, very well organized first aid book is written by a qualified ED Doc with years of experience in dealing with emergency situations. The book flows from subject to subject with Icons which tell the reader what TO DO and what NOT TO DO in different emergency situations. The instructions are easy to follow and it is perfect for any home, office, school or public setting. As the cover says "Read it before you need it!"

ordered 2 first aid books and think this is the better of the two for general first aid info. clear, concise writing, good diagrams. easy to follow instructions. one caveat: book is unclear on how to handle someone suspected of having a spine injury. if there is life-threatening danger, book says you can move them out of danger and use Log Roll technique to turn them, but should not put them into Recovery position.
