Summary

The new First Responder: Skills in Action program is the most authoritative teaching and learning program available. This new resource gives students the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to care for victims of sudden illness and accidents. Students will see clearly how to function when no specialized equipment is available and how to perform as key assistants to the emergency medical technician or paramedic who arrives on the scene.
