Each topic is designed to be read at a glance: the language kept short and simple and, where appropriate, photo sequences show exactly what to do. As long as you can read, you can help. Straightforward advice allows you to take control of the situation, stabalise the casualty and provide the appropriate treatment at sea. This is an essential guide for all who go afloat.
