The UK's only fully authorised first aid guide, this book is used as the official training manual for the UK's leading first aid organisations' courses.

This bestselling guide covers all aspects of first aid, including first aid for babies and children. This new edition features guidance on first aid in pandemic conditions, what to do in a terrorist incident, the latest guidelines on resuscitation, and delivering first aid for a mental health crisis. Illustrations have been redrawn in the simplest, clearest style to focus on the vital information.

Find out how to treat over 100 different conditions from splinters and sprained ankles to unresponsive casualties, and how to use essential equipment. Learn how to manage a situation safely and how to assess a sick or injured person effectively. Step-by-step photography, all shot in-situ to reflect real-life issues, shows you what to do in any emergency. Easy-to-understand anatomy sections explain the risks involved with particular injuries or conditions and how and why first aid can help.
