Product description

From the Back Cover

The U.S. Army is prepared to meet any foe in every corner of the globe. The U.S. Army First Aid Manual for Soldiers is the U.S. Army's recently declassified official manual on how to render first aid to soldiers who suffer from every conceivable injury or illness.
It is the most useful first aid guide available, covering a broad range of topics in precise, easy-to-understand language. Medical personnel, as the Army points out, are not always available in the field, and soldiers have to rely on their own skills and knowledge to survive. The U.S. Army First Aid Manual for Soldiers addresses the skills and knowledge necessary for many life-threatening situations, with emphasis on treating oneself and aiding others. More importantly, the manual emphasizes prompt and effective action in sustaining life and preventing or minimizing further suffering. Chapters cover:
- Casualty Evaluation
- Understanding Vital Body Functions
- Basic Measures for First Aid, including solving respiratory and bleeding problems
- First Aid for Special Wounds, from head injuries to chest wounds to foot bandages
- Fractures and how to build and apply splints
- Heat and Cold Injuries
- Bites and Stings
- Toxic Environments
- Psychological Reactions
Other chapters cover the contents of the standardized first aid kit, rescue and transportation procedures, general health maintenance, and decontamination procedures. With its clear language, concise diagrams, and field-tested organization, the U.S. Army First Aid Manual for Soldiers should be on every outdoorsman's shelf.
