Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anna L. Jarrett, PhD, ACNP-ACNS,(University of Arkansas)
Description: This is a handy book on first aid for households without medical providers.
Purpose: It is intended as a supportive resource for citizens concerned about personal and public health.
Audience: The book is published and affiliated with the American Medical Association, and the authors are experts.
Features: It covers prevention, preparedness, and care for medical emergencies, listed in alphabetical order. The book is well laid out, making finding topics quite easy. Charts augment the text. The book has a yellow hue, which makes reading it somewhat difficult.
Assessment: If there is nothing else available, this book would be valuable. Most of the information can be quickly found on the Internet, so it may not have universal appeal. It would be beneficial to include a disc with the book.
