A comprehensive manual to practicing first aid in the outdoors. Incredibly well written and put together with a very easy to read lay out.
"Brian, horrified, comes running down and around a rocky outcrop to see Chris holding what is obviously a broken leg shouting 'HELP ME!' Brian stares in disbelief. His mobile is out of signal and it's a good hour's walk to get help...
Apart from panicking, what might you do in Brian's place?"
Covering a vast range of topics from wounds and fractures, to breathing problems and post traumatic stress. Clearly, this is not a replacement for first aid training and should be used in conjunction with appropriate training. Nevertheless, this book is a thorough and interesting read and I would recommend that anyone who ever ventures into the outdoors reads it. Having a better understanding of how to react in an incident will be invaluable to everyone.
