All the information we share with you has been sourced from various First Aid training courses we've been on and robustly checked. Our reference of choice is the First Aid Manual, 10th Edition as produced by the St John Ambulance, St Andrew's First Aid and the British Red Cross. ISBN: 978-1-4093-4200-7
Every answer links to the relevant sections from the websites of these organisations or quotes from the First Aid Manual directly.

St John Ambulance:
St John Ambulance is the nation’s leading first aid charity. Every year, more than 800,000 people learn how to save a life through our training programmes, including hundreds of thousands of young people.
Our volunteers provide first aid in their communities, keeping people safe at events, and working alongside the NHS in response to 999 calls. We’re also always campaigning to raise awareness of first aid and directly educate the public.
British Red Cross:
The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies. We help vulnerable people in the UK and abroad prepare for, withstand and recover from emergencies in their own communities.
