This book is a manual of emergency first aid for flight attendents, and it provides step-by-step guidelines for the diagnosis and management of emergency situations which are likely to be encountered in flight. The book begins with a section on the structures and properties of the atmosphere, and on the cabin environment. This is followed by a section on basic physiology, providing the background for an understanding of many medical problems which could arise.;The main part of the book is concerned with emergency first aid - how to diagnose the problem and what action should be taken. Diagnostic checklists are provided to help guide the flight attendant through the various possibilities, and clear instructions are given as regards treatment. An advice to Captain section is also included. Many of the procedures are illustrated with photographs taken in the aircraft cabin.;Some flight attendants have undergone Advanced Medical Training, and are able to administer drugs and use automatic defibrillators. A chapter is devoted to AMT, and also to how sudden death should be dealt with. A final chapter considers future developments in in-flight medical care.
