In this post we will see First Aid by V. M. Buyanov
First aid is a combination of the emergency medical measures used in case of sudden illness or accident. The first aid rendered on the spot or as the victim is being transported to medical facilities may vary and is classified as follows:
(1) unskilled first aid rendered by a layman who often has none of the necessary means or medicines;
(2) qualified first aid (before the arrival of a doctor) rendered by a specially trained medical worker (medical technician”, nurse, laboratory or dental technician);
(3) first aid rendered by a doctor who has the necessary instruments, apparatus, medicines, blood and blood substitutes, and so on at his disposal.
The textbook deals with general concepts and essentials of First Aid in various accidents and sudden illnesses. General problems discussed in the book include the concepts of asepsis and antisepsis, the principles of applying bandages and basic aspects and methods of resuscitation. First Aid in haemorrhages, wounds, injuries to the soft tissues and bones, electric shock, heat- and sun-stroke, poisoning, acute surgical and non-surgical diseases, and emergency labour are dealt with in detail.
The book was translated from the Russian by Elena Koltsova and was first published by Mir Publishers in 1985.
