Highlights from the chapter on First Aid (Ch 13, p. 109) from Nuclear War Survival Skills by Cresson Kearny
First Aid booklets and trainings from the Red Cross and civil defense are widely available.
Since the Red Cross does not appear to have any virtual e-books on first aid you might want to find one that is available if you are in the midst of a crisis:
For more serious injury and sickness the book Where There is No Doctor goes beyond the scope of first aid manuals, and is recommended by the Volunteers in Technical Assistance. (The referenced edition of this book may currently be out of print, and available via microfiche)
Recommendations by Colonel Henry (one of the first medical officers to visit Hiroshima and Nagasaki after their destruction) are listed on page 109 (Ch 13) of Nuclear War Survival Skills.
The author of RCIP is not a medical physician and does not dispense medical advice.
