Life Saving for Teenagers
Submitter: This was discovered in a public library, in the junior non-fiction section. Not only is it horrifically out of date but it’s also very strange. Instead of teaching how to do Artificial Respiration, it demonstrates how to do a practice drill. Without any information on what you would do in a real life situation.
From p. 31 – What is now known as the Recovery Position is called “Coma Position”
From p. 93 – Example of demonstration of tow carries, with incorrect arm placement that could easily choke victim.
Holly: Out of date – CHECK! Boring, outdated black and white pictures – CHECK! Completely wrong information by today’s standards – CHECK! Weeded – CHECK!
Mary: I know I am dating myself, but this was a book I used when I did a life saving course. I know everyone feels much safer with my 1972 life saving skills.
