The Soldier's First Aid Handbook

William D. Dietz


Excerpt from The Soldier's First Aid Handbook: Comprising a Series of Lectures to Members of the Hospital Corps and Company Bearers

This manual consists in the main of a series of lectures delivered to members of the Hospital Corps and company bearers, and covering the ground indicated in existing orders. Originality is not claimed for it; it is believed, however, that the subject-matter has been presented in available form. The writer's aim has been to supply an elementary "Soldier's Handbook," devoid of technicalities, and limited in its scope to the information required by the bearer who renders "First Aid," only. It is hoped, moreover, that the manual may contribute to facilitate the work of the medical officer in the preparation of his lectures to enlisted men, and, further, be of use to line officers who, in command of detachments, may have to meet emergencies in the absence of the surgeon.
