This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. This portable, quick reference provides comprehensive coverage of first aid procedures and is highly illustrated. Its aim is to enable nurses to effectively and safely provide first aid outside their clinical working environment. However, the principles described will also be useful within the hospital setting and a section at the end of each chapter will describe the appropriate treatment once the patient reaches A&E.
