If you’re involved in first aid training classes in San Jose, Campbell, or Los Gatos either as a facilitator, instructor, or trainee, you might want to consider expanding your knowledge base further with some helpful and interesting books published on the topic.  If you’re ready to line your shelves with some instructional first-aid reads, consider these volumes for yourself or even as gifts.

American Medical Association Handbook of First Aid and Emergency Care
Every San Jose, Cupertino, Saratoga and Milpitas home should have a good basic first aid book for their reference shelf.  More importantly, it’s good to know what’s in that book before an emergency happens!  When you procure a manual like this for your home, get familiar with its contents and browse the chapters from time to time so you keep up on techniques and best practices.  In an emergency, you won’t have much time for reading, so be sure you can easily find the information you’re looking for and be able to recall the First-Aid Training class in Campbell that you attended.

The American Red Cross First Aid and Safety Handbook
Also a great manual to have at Los Gatos, Morgan Hill and Cupertino home, this book covers all the basics and is filled with a wide range of first aid topics that are useful around home or even other locations.  From dealing with burns to animal bites, this informative volume is a solid option for basic first aid care.

Wilderness First Aid: Emergency Care in Remote Locations
By The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons
A must read by outdoor lovers who enjoy sportive activities like hiking, camping, boating, snowmobiling, rock climbing, etc. This handy book is a tremendous resource that anyone who ventures out into remote locations should consider reading.  In fact, if you know anyone who enjoys similar outdoor activities, consider giving this important first aid resource as a gift and give the gift of a First-Aid Certification class near Morgan Hill.

Survival Mom: How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst-Case Scenarios
Published in 2012, this book, in spite of its playfully hip cover, is quite comprehensive and helpful.  As a disaster resource, it naturally explores first aid for a wide range of possibilities.  Moreover, it is complemented by the information about surviving in times of disaster like natural disasters caused by floods or storms, for instance.

How to Give First Aid to Your Dog
By David “Jack” Russell
Humans aren’t the only creatures in need of first aid!  In fact, it’s very common for dogs to eat dangerous plants outside or to injure themselves at play.  In some instances, it might even be a medical emergency requiring you to take some essential first aid steps before you can get your pet to an emergency veterinarian.  For parents of canine children, this book makes a terrific gift.

When shopping for the holidays, consider purchasing one of these gifts for family, friends, or simply for your own household.  Many people aren’t ready to handle a first aid emergency or crisis which is why training is so vital; these books can complement the training and provide the back-up information people need when dealing with minor to severe medical emergencies whether they happen in the back yard or in a remote wilderness far from a medical facility.
