Notes, written by Assist. Prof. Matej Strnad, were created in the hope of refreshing and supplementing first-aid knowledge of physiotherapists. Notes will empower the physiotherapists with theoretical knowledge for faster and more appropriate first aid procedures in acute conditions and relieve them of distress at these events. I also wish the Notes to present a good theoretical basis for the organisation of first-aid workshops, in which physiotherapists will have the opportunity to recover this knowledge and test it in practice. Last but not least, the Notes will enrich first-aid courses and help physiotherapy students in their study. Knowledge from the Notes can be used both, during study and later in professional work or leisure time.
