Immediate First Aid
This first group of subjects contains the practical skills for what to do medically in immediate, life threatening situations. You should be able to perform these skills without having to reference a field guide/manual, because in these situations seconds count.
The main objective is to keep the patient alive until advanced medical care can be given.
It also includes how to perform a secondary exam so you effectively anticipate/treat any further complications and maintain life support until advanced care can be given.
The following subjects contain all the information you need to diagnose and treat specific medical problems that have been discovered during the secondary exam.
These subjects are like a reference manual. You do not need to know them “off-hand” because (usually) they are not immediately life threatening. If you are going into an environment/situation where you know something is a certain risk, e.g., traveling in high altitudes, bushwalking in hot temperatures, etc., then it is highly recommended to commit the pertinent information to memory.
Note: Due to the large subject matter I have made the top level categories collapsable. Just click on the heading to see all the sub-categories. If it is not collapsed it is because your browser does not support it.
