Part of medical technology also includes home use and the employment of devices and techniques that people can do themselves. After all, in many emergency situations, the first people around the victim/patient are family members and friends. And in those precious seconds, what is done can make the difference whether one lives or dies. So it makes good sense for individuals to themselves get some sort of medical training (first aid at least) so that they are able to properly respond in case of an emergency.
The following are a set of links that will help people looking to learn more about medicine and first aid. We list directories and placed where training and equipment can be obtained so that you don’t have to go out looking for it all by yourself.
