Pocket First Aid and Wilderness Medicine

Essential for expeditions: mountaineers, hillwalkers and explorers - jungle, desert, ocean and remote areas

By Jim Duff, Ross Anderson

Written by doctors with a wealth of experience, this book covers the fundamentals of wilderness first aid and medicine. Clearly referenced chapters describe both how to minimise risks (including the preparation of first-aid kits) and how to cope with accident or illness in remote settings, from diving to high altitude and from desert to polar.
