Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The American College of Emergency PhysiciansR First Aid Manual is a traditional first-aid guide, but what makes it stand out is the inclusion of over 500 color photographs clearly depicting the emergency or first-aid situation being discussed. Even readers with limited training will find it easy to follow the instructions by looking at the photographs. The book is divided into color-coded sections for easy access to information. Krohmer, the book's medical editor, is both a professor of emergency medicine (Coll. of Human Medicine, Michigan State Univ., Lansing) and director of EMS, Emergency Medicine Residency in Grand Rapids.
