Description

CPR, AED, and First Aid Provider Handbook, presented by National Health Care Provider Solutions (NHCPS), is a comprehensive resource intended for health care professionals and non healthcare professionals currently enrolled in a CPR, AED, and First Aid Certification or Recertification Course. It serves as the primary training material for CPR, AED, and First Aid Certification and Recertification courses provided by National Health Care Provider Solutions (www.nhcps.com). Although it is predominantly intended for use during certification courses, the handbook was also created to serve as daily reference material for both health care professionals and non-health care professionals alike.

This manual is based on the most recent CPR, AED, and First Aid guidelines published by the American Heart Association and is designed to train people everywhere to respond to everyday emergencies. It covers First Aid basics, including first aid kits, tooth injuries, bee stings, insect bites, nose bleeds and other common problems. Advanced topics include heart attack, stroke, asthma emergencies, head injuries, burns and more. Each topic is broken down into critical decisions to make and steps to take. This book will give you the confidence you need in situations that range from minor to crisis. The book also covers how to provide adult, child, and infant CPR, as well as use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs).

This course is written by Dr. Karl F. Disque, a board certified anesthesiologist and registered pharmacist. Dr. Disque has certified thousands of healthcare professionals with his courses in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), Basic Life Support (BLS), and CPR, AED, and First Aid. This is one of the most effective and user-friendly training manuals on the market because it was created by a team dedicated to life support education with the goal of training people to help save lives.
