TheWilderness First Aid Handbook is a handy,quick-reference guide easily accessible with basic wildernessfirst aid knowledge, but it does not require advanced degrees orexperience with medicine and prehospital care. Recognizing that certainknowledge and procedures are outside the scope of a layperson's training, Dr.Grant Lipman limits the use of technical terms and advanced techniques that maybe unfamiliar to some readers or beyond their comfort zone. This system-based,easy-to-follow guide assists the first aid provider when encountering mostwilderness emergencies, from cold and heat concerns and blister treatments tohigh altitude illness and lightning injury prevention-and much more. Typically the most challenging decisionin the wilderness environment is when to evacuate a sick or potentially sick person, and as such, each section has detailed decision-makingsteps to inform you of when to be concerned and when to get out. This guidance isbased upon the recent evidence-based consensus statement published by theWilderness Medical Society on the scope of practice of wilderness first aid. Filledwith original, full-color artwork illustrating the techniques and proceduresdescribed and with internal-spiral binding and waterproof pages handy fortravel into extreme environments, TheWilderness First Aid Handbook is a must-have for every back pocket orbackpack.
