Overview

According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), 'every year in the UK more than 4,000 people die in accidents in the home and nearly three million turn up at accident and emergency departments seeking treatment. But, because the accidents happen behind closed doors in isolated incidents they rarely attract public and media attention.' What people require in an emergency is the knowledge to take the right steps (whether in the emergency itself, or beforehand to prevent it), the knowledge to avoid those which that they must not, and the common sense to know the difference. The key is knowledge. This Book offers a commonsense guide to handling emergency situations - from basic first aid to dealing with frostbite and heatstroke. The book provides information on assessing an emergency, what you can do in a medical emergency and a comprehensive guide to first aid procedures and techniques. The book also offers advice on preventing accidents in and around the home.
