FOREWORD

This First Aid Training Guide was prepared by the Subcommittee on Personnel Protection and Development (successor to the Safety Training Committee) of the American Petroleum Institute's Committee on Safety and Fire Protection. It has been approved by the Committee on Safety and Fire Protection as well as by the Institute's Committee on Medicine and Biological Science. Its purpose is to provide the fundamentals of training in the six basic emergency measures-artificial respiration, control of bleeding, treatment for shock, care of open wounds and bums, care of dislocations and fractures, and transportation of the injured.

In may instances large quantities of standard first-aid materials will not be available in an emergency. As a result, bandages and splints will have to be improvised. Therefore, this course is designed to provide training largely in functional first aid. For example, with respect to splitting, no attempt is made to specify the exact number of cravat bandages to be used. Of major importance is that the victim be treated for shock, the injured part immobilized, and medical care obtained.

No attempt has been made to discuss the six basic emergencies in the order of their importance. The order selected is for ease of teaching and for apportionment of lesson time.

The program of training outlined herein is designed to extend over a period of not less than 8 hours.
