First Aid for the Family, by Jenny Hobbs

First Aid for the Family

(Southern Book Publishers, in association with the South African Red Cross, 1987)

“Every day people get hurt in accidents, fighting and dangerous conditions like fires, storms, floods and extreme cold. Members of your own family may suffer heart attacks, strokes, broken bones, fits, fevers, serious bleeding or sudden bad illnesses like gastro-enteritis, which can lead to death in a small baby within hours. First Aid for the Family tells you exactly what to do when someone is hurt or gets very sick. It tells you when to call for help, what to do while you wait for help to come, and what to do if you cannot get help… In trouble times like ours especially, everyone needs access to knowledge that can help people who are suffering and save lives.”
