Actually you'd may be surprised to know that FAW (as taught by St Johns, Red Cross etc) is pretty much in line with WMM's advice.

From what I've seen over a number of refreshers (i.e. every 3 yrs) is that it gets marginally simpler and more condensed every revision. Even the CPR routine is much simpler than when I first qualified.

WMM your are quite right

and get the casualty and professionals together ASAP. Ideally not moving the casualty unless you really have to.
