Family Medical Emergencies (DVD)
Every family needs this vital information:
What to do until help arrives — or if it doesn't come!
Free 24-page Pocket Medical Guide included.
This "Family Medical Emergencies" program, prepared in cooperation with the American College of Emergency Physicians, was produced to provide viewers with a basic knowledge of what to do immediately following a medical emergency event before trained medical assistance arrives on the scene. Medical emergencies addressed include: bleeding injuries, broken bones, burns, choking, drowning, poisoning, need for resuscitation, roadside ﬁrst aid at the site of a car accident, allergic reactions, insect bites and stings, as well as shock. Medical doctors explain the diagnoses and demonstrate the treatment of each of these emergencies.
“This program demonstrates first aid treatment techniques for a variety of medical emergencies, including household and other accidents, as well as natural disasters. It also provides accident prevention tips along with information about first aid kits.” – WorldCat Identities Network

“While this is not a religious production, its importance is high. It could help save the life of someone in your home or church. The DVD demonstrates how to administer first aid in a number of life-threatening situations, including the use of the Heimlich maneuver for choking victims. Many people are woefully ignorant when it comes to emergencies, even the simplest ones, so it is highly recommended that a family watch this DVD together until family members understand the procedures and can utilize them when needed. Churches likewise should show this DVD to people who would be called upon to help in a crisis — ushers, workers with children and young people, bus drivers, and so on. A free pocket guide is included.” – Baptist Bulletin
