Anyone Know a Really Good First-Aid Manual?
« on: July 19, 2011, 10:18:06 PM »
As part of my latest drive to get on top of the SH issue, I've decided I'm going to get a really good book on first aid that everyone in the family can read (including my teenage son). The reasoning is, if we know what to do when there's an emergency, we won't be so scared of my daughter's SH all the time.

Anyone here got a recommendation for a really good manual for home first-aid?

I think finding a training course is better than reading a book, as its hands on, tells you have to do things properly. Wehn I did my first aid training I got given a first aid book after it. X

I'ld go for training over a book, though that may be difficult to do for all of you.

Training is good. Can your kids join St John's Ambulance? Me and my daughter both went n learnt loads of stuff besides first aid and had fun. When I was younger I spent ages just reading the St Johns Manual just coz I could...I was weird like that.

Thanks everyone - that's been a big help.  I was a bit sceptical at first about finding a course, but I've checked and St John's run lots that are pretty much what we need.  Thanks!
