First Aid for Colleges and Universities, Tenth Edition, is intended for students in a full-semester course, designed specifically for college-level courses in First Aid, and meets American Red Cross (ARC) and American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines. Course completion leads to First Aid/CPR certification from the ARC and AHA. In addition to preparing students to pass certification exams, it also contains more depth and detail than other available texts in the same market. In addition to comprehensive coverage of all first aid situations a responder is likely to encounter, this book provides self-tests, critical thinking exercises, and skill assessment checklists. The Tenth Edition features the new 2010 AHA and ARC CPR Guidelines, which affect many critical procedures in the entire field. In addition to being extremely current, the book also features a helpful end of chapter summary highlighting both the ARC and AHA guidelines of that chapters/content. A fresh new design makes this book engaging to the reader, while easy to navigate. Illustrations and photos have also been selectively updated and refreshed throughout the book.
