The manual describes the most up-to-date basic first aid techniques for use in situations where there are limited or no resources available. It outlines step-by-step processes for a first aider to follow and administer to an ill or injured person before the arrival of emergency medical care on the accident scene or before transporting the casualty to a medical facility.
