About this title


This pocket-sized, comprehensive medical guide for backcountry emergencies emphasizes techniques for situations when the victim is far from help.

In contradiction to the traditional assumption that backcountry first aid is just a temporary fix until outside help can arrive, the Backcountry Medical Guide is predicated on the fact that it may be days or weeks before professional medical help can be obtained. Clearly illustrated with line drawings, this guide covers everything from the minor-irritating blisters, nosebleeds, bug bites, and toothaches-to the major-broken limbs, shock, hypothermia, burns, head injuries, and pulmonary edema. Carefully structured for first aid novices, the guide also provides practical information for highly skilled medical professional who may find themselves without the technology available in hospitals.

Also includes a detailed list of medications and what you should include in your first-aid kit, plus illustrations.

From the Publisher:
