Needed this manual to renew my BLS certification. The American Heart Association suggests 3 sources to purchase this item; all charged ridiculous shipping. Paying $7.95 shipping for an $11.00 book? FREE ship at with super saver shipping. SWEET!! Anyway, the manual is awesome, everything you need to know to get certified in Basic Life Support, and also excellent if you just want to learn how to provide CPR, use an automated external defibrillator, relieve a choking victim. The CD ROM is great for those who like the visual reinforcement of the text. BE AWARE-there are those out there selling the older manuals that do not reflect updates in practice. This is the most current version from 2006. I am guessing the committee will meet in the next couple of years to update if necessary.
Comprehensive manual that is necessary for BLS certification. Check when you sign up for the class, some classes include the book.
I was led by the description to believe that this was the current version. When I got to my class, I was told I couldn't use it because there was a newer version. It was a waste of my money.
This is the exact training booklet we used in class. It is well illustrated and well written. It comes with the quick reference guide also presented in class. The class and booklet come highly recommended.
I bought this book for my BLS class I took last month, the book itself is very informative and is great to look back on, however while in the 4 hour class we were never asked to open it.... So in the long run it really wasn't nessasary that I purchased it.
I bought this book a week before classes started and I received it before my second class session of my First Aid class. Great service and affordable for the average college student! I bought a used book, but it was in great, undamaged condition! Thanks!
Good reference. I realized I had accidentally purchased the smaller booklet, not the soft cover textbook I had in mind. Either way, this booklet serves as a very informative reference card and explains most of the general concepts in lay terms and is a good accompanying piece to the actual text.
This is book has the 2010 American Heart Association guidelines that is required for Healthcare Provider training. Note: The guidelines change every 5 years. The new books with the 2015 guidelines should be available in early 2016. It takes the AHA about a year to make the books available & start teaching the new guidelines once the guidelines are announced.
