FM 21-11: First Aid for Soldiers
Field manual 21-11 provides the basic fundamentals of first aid care and treatment which you can apply to yourself or to another soldier before the arrival of trained medical personnel. It includes instructions in first aid measures to take for special injuries such as chest and belly wounds; common emergencies, such as snake bite and drowning; injuries resulting from contact with chemicals, such as war gases and propellant fuels and oxidizers; and how to transport the sick and wounded so as not to aggravate their condition or endanger their life.
