Excellent! Very clear and concise. Thanks!
Excellent book! Much easier to read and follow the new BLS Provider guidelines.
I have been looking for a book that would provide me with the basic steps I would need to take in a life at stake situation. This book was just what I was looking for. The way it is broken down with easy step by step instructions for all groups makes it easy to follow and reference when in this type of situation. I am so happy I downloaded this book and would recommended this to anyone looking for a easy to read guide on CPR, AED for both adults and children.
