Your group should rehearse these procedures (below), usin make-believe victims, either dummies or live people, at least once each week.  That is, each week rehearse part of the followin routine, until it is pat.

Then, a year later, rehearse again.  Refreshen yourselves on it once each year.  Be careful not to "manifest" accidents, just so you can participate in them.  Keep the attitude of "God, what you want me to do".

Skin would be cool, moist, pale, and bluish.

There may be abundant sweatin.

Eyes sunken and dull.

Possible retchin.

Probable thirst.

Possible unconsciousness.

Here is that, which you ought to do:

If you know that the spine is unhurt, then raise the legs til a foot above the ground. But not if the spine might be hurt.

If it is hard, for them to breathe, then tilt them a bit.

See to it that they don't get too hot nor too cool.

If the ambient temperature is not hot, then cover them with cloth, such as coats or blankets.

If they are hot, put shade on them, loosen their clothin, and fan them.

[This is the end of the online first aid segment about shock.]


POISON by First Aid Online

At this telephone's number, 1-800-222-1222, you can get



Lore about educational events -- ask for an educator so they can rightly route your callin.

In U.S. and our territories call 1-800-222-1222, except...

Abiders in the Federated States of Micronesia must dial an access code (288) and then 888-222-4516 to reach a poison center.

If You Suspect Poisonin, Then Look For:

Many different kinds of symptoms are possible.

Pupils, of eyes, constricted, or "pinned".

Odor on breath.

Sudden onset of sickness, or of pain.

A holder of poison is nearby.

Your Treatment:

Find your poison-controllin hub, and call, to it. All hubs, in USA, and territories (except Micronesia) use this number: 1-800-222-1222.

Here is a finder, you put your state or province into a blank field at the top of the page, then click "search":

[Note: I would rather use the word "hub" than "center" because "hub" comes from a better origin than the other word. I am a writer, and a keyer, so words' choice is important to me.]

Save the holder of the poison, or the label, and save some of the victim's vomit. Give, them, later, to professional folks.

If the victim is aware, keep him comfortably6.

Unless directed otherwise by the poisonous controllin hub, neither feed nor give drink to him, nor try to make him to retch.

If he is unaware, then roll him onto his side, and keep open his air's way.

If he needs it, then give, to him, rescuin breathin, or cardio-pulmonary resuscitatin (heart's and lungs' arousin), until those come, who are more expert, than are you.

[This is the end of the online first aid segment about poison.]


UNAWARENESS by First Aid Online

Look For:

Victim does not respond to bein touched, nor to bein hailed by his name.

Continually ask him how he feels, to check for emergin awareness.

Your Treatment:

Do not let him to be alone, except for you to call 9-11, or helpin.

Check his:



Air's way

If you find a pulse, then give, to him, rescuin breathin.

If you find no pulse, then someone, trained, should give, to him, cardio-pulmonary resuscitatin (heart's and lungs' arousin).

Keep him warm.

Give, to him, no liquid.

[This is the end of the online first aid segment about unawareness.]



The 3 levels of EMT's -- with EMT-Paramedic at the top level -- are the height of education in the subject of first aid.

Beyond the EMT-Paramedic level, you would be considered a physician.

I suggest that you form a survival group of families, and that at least one of your group members attain a paramedic certificate. Then that member can teach first aid to all the other members.

Perhaps the whole group can contribute to the cost of the course, and possibly to living expenses while the chosen member takes the course.

It would actually be a saving in money, for then you have your own free first aid teacher afterward, instead of having to pay for first aid courses for each member.

ACEP First Aid Manual, 4th Edition (Paperback)

Here is a reader's review for you to learn about this book: Image Of Cover Of ACEP First Aid Manual

"The book is well organized by color coded sections, that can be quickly found by watchin the page's edge while fannin through.

Fannin back to front shows general categories, like 'Respiratory Problems'

"...while fannin front to back shows specific situations like Choking, Drowning or Asthma.

"Each section is prefaced by a basic overview of that part of the human body,

e.g. 'The Bones, Joints and Muscle Injuries' section starts with illustrations of a skeleton, the joints and muscle groups.

"The book over all is very informative, easy to be followed, and with few exceptions, is focused on the most practical and common situations offerin simple DOs and DON'Ts as well as excellent color photo references for proper techniques,

"...but the book also covers a very in depth range of situations, from splinters & nosebleeds to anaphylactic shock & penetratin chest wounds.

"The back of the book offers a quick and dirty 'Emergency First Aid' illustrated brief for each of the sections in a simple 1, 2, 3, 4 format and references the pages for in-depth info.

"I originally felt the book didn't do well covering internal injuries treatment, but thought better, 'First Aid' is just that, the first aid someone provides until a trained professional arrives or the victim is transported to a hospital.

"I had no issues with the bindin or margins of the book, but I understand another reviewer's concern about not bein able to lay it open & flat so to refer to it while givin helpin, but I believe that part of the responsibility aid givers assume is to reassure the victim.

"Keep it handily or bear the book for reference, but I wouldn't read it in front of a conscious victim.

"Calmen them, make them to be comfortable, and, if needed, excuse yourself to your wagon or another room to do a refresher, or have someone else read it, while you provide the help maybe. If it came down to it, break the spine and it will lie flat.

"I feel the best use of the book is to read through it fully a couple times and learn it, then keep it for refreshers. If you really study it, you should have the confidence and basic knowledge to provide help in any situation.

"I have yet to find a book or field manual that offers better information on realistic first aid situations. I plan to order a second copyin for myself. Well worth the money & hard to imagine anyone not appreciatin this book as a thoughtful gift."

Learning How to Do

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation


written by: Renuka Ramamurthy

Learning about CPR is exceedingly important and can be life-saving. Emergencies don’t wait so you can learn. Therefore, here are detailed instructions about how to do CPR.

You shouldn’t bother finding a pulse when you have a choice of doing life saving compressions. Listen for breathing by lowering your ear next to the individual’s mouth. When the victim is breathing or coughing, do not perform CPR, since doing so may cause the heart to stop beating.

1. Set the victim facing upwards. Make sure they are totally flat to avoid injury during CPR.

2. If the victim has ceased breathing, call an ambulance and carry on to the next step.

3. Place your hands on the middle of the victim's chest, right in-between the nipples. Interlace your hands and move your torso directly over them so that your arms are straight and a bit firm. Put force on their chest at least 2 inches, 4-5 cm down and release for the chest to draw back fully before the next compression.

You must wait about eighteen secs for each compression and perform 30 compressions. If you are not professionally trained in CPR, you may continue doing the chest compressions while professional assistance arrives or the person wakes up. You shouldn’t yield doing the chest compressions when you notice snaps or pops, as it is normal.

4. If you have had CPR training, you can begin rescue breathing following thirty chest compressions. Tilt the person’s head back and lift his/her chin to open the airway. Pinch his/her nose and cover their mouth with yours. You may use a CPR mask if you have one. Give a big breath to the victim , causing their chest rise.

Breathe slowly so that the air goes into the lungs and not their stomach. Permit their chest to descend before doing a rescue breath another time. If their chest doesn’t rise following the initial breath, reposition their head and start again. If you are not comfortable with rescue breathing, carry on with chest compressions at a rate of 100 per minute. If an automated external defibrillator (AED) is accessible, utilize it as early as you can to jump-start the victim’s heart.

5. Repeat thirty more chest compressions.

6. Perform 2 more rescue breaths.

7. Redo steps five and six for an estimated two minutes.

8. Following 2 minutes of chest compressions and rescue breaths, stop them and listen to the victim for breathing. If he/she is still not breathing, remain doing CPR.

9. Keep doing the process and listen for breaths at 2 minute intervals while waiting for help. Once the victim awakens, you may cease CPR.

Steps to Provide CPR to a Child between 1 and 8 Years of Age

1. Children can be carrying contagious illnesses, so exercise universal precautions and, if available, use personal protective equipment.

2. Gently tap or shake the child’s shoulders, calling out at them in a strong voice. Do not hurt them, but be physical. If the child doesn’t respond and is not breathing, call emergency before you can start CPR.

3. Put one hand on the breastbone between the child’s nipples and push down straight roughly 2 inches. Permit the chest to recoil back and keep doing the compressions thirty more times. If you have CPR training, go to step 4 of rescue breaths. If not continue with chest compressions.

4. Cover the child’s mouth with your mouth and pinch his/her nose closed using your fingers. Gently breathe into his/her mouth until his/her chest expands. Let the chest go to its originally position and repeat breathing a second time.

If the air doesn’t show any change in his/her chest when you do this, move his/her head and keep trying. If this doesn’t work, stop and return to chest compressions. You can try rescue breaths after thirty chest compressions.

5. If you are alone, do CPR for 2 minutes before getting a hold of an ambulance. If someone else is able, order them to call an ambulance while you start CPR. Even if the child is awaken, it is crucial to contact 911.


Giving CPR to Infants under One Year of Age

1. Little infants react positively when their feet are poked or rubbed. If the infant has aged more than two months, pat his/her shoulder or chest and call out his/her name. Don’t harm the infant but be firm.

If the child hasn’t awoken, dial 911 immediately. If there isn’t anyone that can dial 911, implement CPR for approximately 2 minutes before calling 911.

2. Place 2 fingers upon the breastbone directly between the baby’s nipples and push straight down to approximately an inch and a half. Allow the chest to rise all the way back before proceeding to perform 30 more chest compressions. If you have taken CPR training, give rescue breaths to the infant. If you haven’t just carry on giving chest compressions.

3. Cover the baby’s nose and mouth using your mouth and carefully breathe until his/her chest expands. Permit the air to leave and the chest will descend. Then, provide one additional breath.

If the breath doesn’t go in when blowing, adjust the child’s head and try again. If it still does not work, simply carry on doing chest compressions. You can attempt rescue breaths again once you have done thirty more chest compressions.

Reviews of Esteemed Web CPR Certifiers


Review: CPRToday is extremely professional, boasting pleasant visual aids, accessible walkthroughs, and simple navigation. They have CPR courses at no cost. The site’s course fee is cheaper when compared to many of other online certifiers.

They eagerly take away ten percent of their course fee if you find a price less than their fee. You need to answer only twenty-five questions, and you are allowed two attempts to get through, which is very hard to find.

2. PROcpr

Review: This is a trendy CPR training site, but their fees seem to be expensive. PROcpr is an extremely professional site, with course videos, interactions, and simple navigation. One other good attribute about this certifier is they send you a laminated wallet card, though this is not worth paying more for.

They offer a free CPR course and give you two attempts to succeed. Besides the high cost, PROcpr is good.

3. American Health Care Academy

Even though this is a popular website for CPR certification and has several branches across the net, its course fee is surprisingly nominal.

A bit of the material on this website is old, and you have to look over the up to date procedures for the certification. The first-aid course isn’t updated on this website. The site has a professional look and has simple navigation.


Advice for Finding Offline Certification Organizations or Agencies

In the United States, the most admirable places to acquire CPR certifications from might be the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross. Many of the countries that have a prominent Red Cross suggest classes available at this agency.

CPR certification classes can be found by getting a hold of your town’s fire station, medical center, or other emergency establishment. A great deal of these courses are instructed by off-duty or retired firefighters, nurses, and police officials.
