Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An experienced street paramedic gives a detailed crash course in the administration of emergency care under the most life-threatening conditions. Tactical Medicine is an excellent introduction to providing critical medical care when lives hang in the balance - both yours and your patients'. Learn the three stages of tactical medicine; the vital priorities of administering first aid under fire; the realities of setting up an efficient triage system; the must-have equipment and supplies for a tactical medical kit; the best methods for transporting your gear while on the scene; the differences between law enforcement and military field care; and much more. Whether you are a medic assigned to a SWAT team or military unit, an EMT thinking of entering police work or just someone who is interested in this dynamic field of medicine, you will benefit from this book.
