Eight Lifesaving Medical Skills

The PDF file below is from the Live Free USA medical training program "Eight Lifesaving Medical Skills"  a distillation from our more extensive "Survival Medics" course.   You will note that bandaging and splinting are not included, as these skills are not immediately lifesaving.  They are necessary for preventing infections and further injury and should be learned.
