Om Illustrated Lectures on Ambulance Work
Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. A Large edition having become exhausted, this book is reissued, with fifteen fresh illustrations, and an Appendix containing such additional information as is rendered necessary by the recent developments of Ambulance work. During the last two years, the ambulance movement has spread with marvellous rapidity, both at home and abroad, and its importance has become more than ever recognized.
This is very noticeable in connection with our Collieries and Mines. The Royal Commission on Accidents in Mines suggested (March, 1886) that measures should be adopted for dealing more systematically and expeditiously with accidents in mines, that ambulances and stretchers should be kept in all mines, that in mining districts arrangements should be made for the establishment of ambulance centres, and that facilities should be afforded for the instruction of men in First Aid and the use of First Aid Appliances. In the Coal Mines Regulation Act (1887), it is ruled that Where persons are employed underground, ambulances or stretchers, with splints and bandages, shall be kept at the mine ready for immediate use in case of accident.
