This review is from: First Aid Manual: The Authorised Manual of St. John Ambulance, St. Andrew's Ambulance Association, and the British Red Cross (Paperback)
This book is an absolute must for anyone with an interest in first aid or who is considering ambulance work. It contains a comprehensive guide to immediate first aid. It is considered the bible among those who practice first aid. Of course a basic first aid course with a qualified instructor is a must for everyone, this book will provide you with a good reference guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice First Aid manual, 21 Sep 2011
This review is from: First Aid Manual: The Authorised Manual of St. John Ambulance, St. Andrew's Ambulance Association, and the British Red Cross (Paperback)
Have read a few similar books, and this one is definitely the best one I've read. Easy to understand and with clear pictures. I think everyone should have a copy at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best available, 2 Nov 2007
This review is from: First Aid Manual: The Authorised Manual of St. John Ambulance, St. Andrew's Ambulance Association, and the British Red Cross (Paperback)
Why this manual?
Because it is created by a collaboration of the UK's premier providers of first aid so you know your getting the best advice possible. Also teamed up with Dorling Kindersley having the reputation of being one of the worlds leading publishers of illustrated books make this manual the most accessible and easiest to use with the highest quality images and text and easy to follow step by step guides what more could you possibly want from a first aid manual.

Over the years I have seen many first aid manuals, however none of them have impressed me as consistently as this, quite simply this is the only manual I trust. Everything you need to know plus a little more make this a must have book that every home and business should not be without.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Official Text for First Aiders, 10 Mar 2004
This is the official text for first aiders in the UK. It is quite well laid out, with plenty of graphic (but not gory!) illustrations of interventions and is easy-to-understand. As a Registered First Aid Instructor/Examiner I find the previous edition to have been better. For starters it was clearer on the management of the unconscious spinally injured casualty, whereas a bit of exegesis is required with this text to arrive at pretty much the same conclusion as the 7th edition (but just more subtly put - a purposefully grey area perhaps?). There are other flaws. Some of the graphics don't correlate with best practice, and the same can be said about the text in places. However, this is no fault of the book itself, which is a must-have for First Aiders as it reflects the official line on approaches and interventions. Flawed yet indispensable, with plenty of food for critical thought!
