Take a look inside at www.ambo.com.au Testomonial!Dear Carpet, I recently purchased one of the "Prehospital Guides 4 Kids" . Last Thursday I attended a 6 month old cardiac arrest. En route to the job I was able to go to the specific age group page, look up what I needed to refresh myself on. I was therefore prepared via the quick bit of revision and the ability to confirm doses etc from what I had written. I found the booklet to be valuable resource and it to be very well set out, particularly the specific section on cardiac arrest. It was far more effective than simply doing the sums in your head and much easier to use than other dosage cards. I commend the Paramedic Shop for stocking such a useful tool.
