Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive guide to treating emergency victims of all ages in any situation. The American College of Emergency Physicians in association with Dorling Kindersley Publishing, has created an essential and comprehensive first aid manual. The treatments and techniques are explained in step-by-step format and illustrated with hundreds of photographs showing exactly how to perform them correctly. A 32-page emergency section at the end of the book sums up the most important life-saving procedures, including rescue breathing, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, treatment for a blocked airway, and other life-threatening situations. Illustrated anatomical sections explain the key concepts underlying first-aid techniques.

Book News Annotation:

A rather basic manual, profusely illustrated with photographs, explains first-aid procedures and some of the physiological and anatomical information behind emergency health problems. Chapters are devoted to resuscitation; disorders of the respiratory system; circulation; wounds; disorders of consciousness; bone, joint, and muscle injuries; burns; extreme heat and cold; foreign bodies; bites and stings; and emergency childbirth. Also included are techniques of bandaging and the proper methods of moving an injured person.

About the Author

Jon R. Krohmer, MD, FACEP, medical editor, is Director of EMS, Emergency Medical Residency at the Spectrum Health Downtown Campus in Grand Rapids, Michigan; EMS Medical Director, Kent County Emergency Medical Services; and Associate Professor, Section of Emergency Medicine, College of Human Medicine at the Michigan State University in East Lansing. Dr. Krohmer has received many awards and honors, including the 1998 ACEP Outstanding Contribution in EMS Award and the 2000 MCEP Meritorious Service Award. The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) is a medical specialty society formed in 1969 to improve emergency care. Before emergency medicine was recognized as a specialty with unique training and skills, emergency rooms were often inadequately managed and staffed. As the number of patients seeking emergency care increased, the need for change became apparent. The College was created to drive that change, thereby improving patient care and saving lives. Today, the College has more than 21,000 members and is the recognized header in emergency medicine.
