  • Written by doctors with a wealth of experience, this pocket guide provides a comprehensive summary of wilderness first aid and medicine – that is, managing accident or illness in remote locations without immediate access to medical help. All topics are clearly referenced and easy to find, with chapters covering preparation, prevention, accident protocol, diagnosis, treatment and evacuation. In addition, suggestions for first-aid kits and lists of medications and antibiotics (with dosage) can be found in the appendices. 

    From life-threatening emergencies to broken bones and sprains, infectious diseases, food poisoning, envenomation and respiratory problems, the book sets out all the crucial protocol and procedures to follow. It covers a wide range of different environments, including high altitude, desert, polar, tropical and marine, dealing with risk management and a variety of different situations that may arise. 

    Minimizing risks, while feeling confident in your ability to deal with any potential injury or illness, is part of the challenge and satisfaction of wilderness travel. Conveniently sized to slip in a pocket or rucksack top, Pocket First Aid and Wilderness Medicine is an invaluable point of reference for all who travel and take part in outdoor, wilderness and mountain activities.
