This pocket manual shows how to save life in simple systematic steps in the absence of trained emergency physicians.

In addition, information has been added about common drugs used in the outpatient department, prophylaxis following exposure, procedures, approach to fever and how to prepare oneself, when shifting a child for radiology.
