Lown, Maris A.; And Others
Texts, illustrations, and exercises are provided in these six learning modules which were designed to teach the general public how to deal with several emergency situations. The first module, "Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)," was designed by Maris A. Lown to teach members of the public, nurses, and paramedics the techniques of unwitnessed CPR for an adult. The second module, prepared by M. W. Wester, Jr., instructs the user in "Removing Imbedded Fishhooks from Skin." The third module, "What About Animal Bites?," was prepared by Jeannette Bobst to teach elementary school children how to avoid animal bites and what to do if they are bitten. The fourth module, "Highway Flare Patterns" by Archie Sherman, Jr., discusses the hazards associated with flare usage, describes the process for lighting and extinguishing flares safely, and explains factors in flare placement. The fifth module, "Self-Defense for Women" by Barbara Murphy, describes several protection methods, muggers' favorite targets, the most vulnerable areas of an attacker, easily carried weapons, and methods of self-defense for several kinds of attacks. The module also helps women decide whether to remain passive or fight. The final module, "Red Code and Use of Fire Extinguishers" by Pauline Healy, describes how to initiate a fire alarm and use three types of fire extinguishers. The modules intersperse the text with reinforcement exercises and immediate feedback and conclude with post-tests. (AYC)
