This is the U.S. ARMY FIRST AID MANUAL. Obviously it is the very best. It took the Military 400 years of experience and detailed records to evolve this information into the very best possible First Aid Manual. It covers every conceivable situation. It is a detailed manual with numerous illustrations. 224 pages. By the US Army Medical Department Center and School. This manual meets the first aid training needs of individual service members.

First aid is the emergency care given to the sick, injured, or wounded before being treated by medical personnel. CHAPTER 1.
