First Aid Book
First aid training is a low cost, but highly effective strategy to reduce morbidity and mortality. With the help of Belgian Red Cross Centre for Evidence Practice (CEBaP), Belgian Red CrossFlanders and a multi-disciplinary expert panel, Indian Red Cross Society prepared the evidence-based Indian First Aid Guidelines (IFAG) in 2014 which were used to update the sixth edition of first aid Manual prepared for the general public by the St. John Ambulance (India) and the Indian Red Cross Society.
First aid has been practised in the world since antiquity. There is enough evidence that it was used to give relief to the injured and sick persons in wars and calamities in India since the times of Mahabarata. The use of first aid techniques expanded and improved with time, but it got the real fillip when the Red Cross Movement started in the world about 150 years ago. Consequently, The Indian Red Cross Society was established in 1920 through an Act of the Parliament. Until then, the St. John Ambulance carried out Red Cross work in addition to its normal activities.
