Your Guide to Health – Chapter 12: Emergency Care

Emergencies always strike suddenly, without warning. One moment everything is fine; the next, someone is involved in a serious accident. Victims include all ages, from tiny children to elderly folk. Cuts, bruises, lacerations, fractures, and fainting spells are common amid all the bustling activity of life. Every day people fall from broken ladders, weakened chairs, and makeshift ways of climbing up to fix something. Others trip over rough objects or fall downstairs. Some injuries are slight; others are serious and need immediate care. Are you prepared to give the kind of care they need?

The information provided in this series ‘Your Guide to Health’ are based, in part, on the book “Your Guide to Health” written by Dr. Clifford Russell Anderson. The following is meant as public enlightenment rather than as an alternative to engaging the services of a qualified medical professional.
