This book is really helpful for students like me, clear and concise.
So glad I found this book, it really helped a lot in my studies. Thanks a lot!
I love this book! This was my guide to pass CPR and I am still using it as reference.
This is one of the best first aid guides I have read. I was looking for a book that would give me with the standard steps I would need to take for a first aid applicable situation. This was just what I was looking for. The second section provides answers to medical problems such as breathing problems and stroke and what to do if in that situation. I am so thrilled I got this book and would recommended this to anyone looking for a easy to read guide on first aid.
