First aid is the emergency care given to the sick, injured, or wounded before being treated by medical personnel. The term first aid can be defined as “urgent and immediate lifesaving and other measures, which can be performed for casualties by nonmedical personnel when medical personnel are not immediately available.”
First Aid Manual by U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force meets the first aid training needs of individual service members. Since medical personnel will not always be readily available, the nonmedical service members must rely heavily on their own skills and knowledge of life-sustaining methods to survive on the integrated battlefield. This publication outlines both self-aid and aid to other service members (buddy aid). The procedures discussed apply to all types of casualties and the measures described are for use by both male and female service members.
With its clear language, concise diagrams, and field-tested organization, the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force's First Aid Manual should be in every outdoorsman’s library.
