These First Aid Treatments provide additional first aid resources for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Ventures. Resources links below include the Mayo Clinic First Aid Website, WebMD, About.com, Expert Village First Aid Lesson Videos (EVVideo), and ProFirstAid (PFAVideo). Please note that the only first aid materials recommended by the Boy Scouts of America are those found or listed in official BSA materials. First Aid Treatments are constantly being revised. See the current First Aid Merit Badge Book and Boy Scout Handbook for much more information. Neither MeritBadge.Org, nor its contributors make any recommendations: see the Disclaimers.
