In a world that can be unpredictable, we are faced with emergency situations involving natural forces, accidents, illness, and the threat of terrorism. It becomes vitally important to respond to these emergencies quickly and correctly. A person’s life may be dependant on decisions made by lay responders.
What to Do When Every Minute Counts: High School Training Workbook will provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to take care of life-threatening emergencies and to generally recognize the nature and seriousness of a victim's injuries or illness.
Students will learn to assess the need for emergency medical care, and to judge whether an emergency is serious enough to call for medical assistance and how to treat the victim until professional help arrives.
