Riassunto: Ask any fire/rescue or EMS person and they will tell you: the key to emergency response is preparedness. First comes prevention; knowing how to stop emergencies before they happen. Yet if sudden injury or illness occurs, knowing what to do can make the difference between a mild emergency and a serious one, or even between life and death. When you don?t know, panic usually results; now you?re part of the problem. But don?t fret; the information you need to be the first step in the solution ? basic first aid and safety skills ? is relatively simple and easy to learn. Easy to learn, yes, but if things go wrong, your learning suddenly makes all the difference.

First Aid and Safety For Dummies gives you the tools you need to save a life. Whether it?s performing CPR correctly or accident-proofing your home, this comprehensive guide shows you how to effectively prevent and respond to emergencies. In typical lively-yet-informative Dummies style, you?ll find out about dealing with:

  • Wounds
  • Burns
  • Poisoning
  • Shock
  • Bites and stings
  • Choking
  • And much more

Thorough instructions detail each problem and its first aid; off-putting jargon is kept to a minimum and common sense to a maximum in considering not only the classic symptoms (for example, two hands on the throat for choking) but also the variations (what if that choking victim is you ? and you?re alone?) that crop up in real-world emergencies. Emphasizing practicality and ready-to-use knowledge, this book also covers:

  • Creating a first-aid kit
  • Safety for all areas of the home
  • Special needs of children, the elderly, and the disabled
  • A chapter on hazards of the high-tech workplace
  • Sports injuries and accidents
  • Herbal remedies
  • CPR and artificial respiration
  • Emergency rescue procedures
  • Who to call and when

Preparedness is peace of mind. With the knowledge you?ll gain from First Aid and Safety For Dummies, you can rest assured that you?ve taken the most effective steps against accidents and mishaps. You can also be confident that if an emergency does occur, yours will be the calmer, cooler head, and cooler heads are the ones that prevail.
