Life is uncertain, people who are involved in survival situations, disasters and accidents are often unprepared both in knowledge and supplies.
 

This 2nd Edition contains a wealth of new material and 46 expanded chapters including Information on Minor Injuries and Illness, Lifesaving Surgery, Environmental Problems and Tactical Considerations Life is uncertain, people who are involved in survival situations, disasters and accidents are often unprepared both in knowledge and supplies. This book is intended to give you grounding in medical care and encourage you to prepare supplies suitable to your level of knowledge and likely situations you may encounter. It is hoped it will be useful to those who partake in extreme and wilderness sports and activities as well as those who are interested in survivalism and preparedness.

 

 The contents of this book are derived from a number of articles which have been published online and the syllabus of Wilderness and Survival Medicine Course they run. The aim of this work is to provide the lay person with the knowledge and skills to deal with a variety of medical conditions and traumatic injuries usually dealt with by Health Care Professionals. Equipment, medical supplies and initial first aid treatment is covered, if the injury or illness would benefit from more advanced measures then these are detailed as well as any skills needed to carry them out. We also explore aftercare and the limitations of care without the benefit of a modern health service.
