First aid is the rapid treatment of a person who has become the victim of either an injury or an illness, as a temporary solution until proper medical aid arrives. Even though first aid is generally not intended to be the end solution to healing a person, it can save their life and ensure a faster recovery.
In this book, we will cover many different first aid topics in detail with an emphasis on how you can complete the first aid in a survival situation with limited or natural resources. The information that you will learn here will likely be some of the most important information that you ever learn in your life because it can save your life or that of another person, including someone who you care for deeply.
