The first recommendation you'll find is to "read this book before you need it." That's a good idea, not only because there are ways you could be prepared for possible accidents and injuries, but also because there are certain techniques mentioned multiple times in the text that aren't explained until the end of the book. I think putting them at the beginning might have been better and for the Kindle version, it might make sense to have a hot link to the entry for the various techniques where they are referenced in the main body of the book for easy access.
I hesitate to comment on the content since the author is a professional and what first aid training I have was more than forty years ago, but I can say there wasn't anything (with one or two exceptions) that struck me as wrong or conflicting with what I do know. One item that struck me strangely was a recommendation that a first aid kit should have "change for a pay phone." I guess there are situations where this might still make sense, possibly an injury that happens at an isolated highway rest area with a functioning pay phone where there is no cell phone service or you don't have a cell phone.Read more ›
