Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Time is the essential element distinguishing first aid from extended care. When the doctor is far away--an hour or more according to the Wilderness Medical Society--the principles of first aid are often unequal to the task of managing the injured and the ill. This book provides principles for dealing with many serious emergencies and a few common problems. It is intended to be a reminder about what to do for those who have training and a stimulus to learn for those who are untrained.

Synopsis:

This book provides principles for dealing with many serious emergencies, and a few common problems, when a doctor is more than an hour away.

Synopsis:

Small enough to take in the field, this pocket-sized survival essential will benefit everyone in a wilderness setting. With information on treating shock victims, abdominal pain, sprains, fractures, dislocations and much more, this is an inexpensive way to save someone's life!
