One of the finest first aid books I've seen.--Mel Otten, M.D., Wilderness Medical Society
Contained in this book are fundamental topics in wilderness first aid, building on standard first aid knowledge to prepare any individual involved in remote areas. Advanced skills such as assessing a patient, dealing with environment hazards, and decisions making are covered in a easy to read and concise format. This is coupled by a founding on dealing with common injuries such as burns, shock, fractures and sprains/strains in a remote area, coupled with managing a condition under the stress of environmental impact such as heat or cold injury or adverse weather delaying access to help.
There are also focus topics on elements of teamwork and leadership, which in a remote or wilderness area make the difference in preparing for and responding to an emergency.
