-create different types of bandages (circular, spiral, oblique, recurrent, crossed), for the best fit according to anatomy;

-create dressings for sucking chest wounds to prevent a lethal tension pneumothorax;

-create stabilizing splints for arms, legs, and spine to prevent further breakage and for pain control;

    Good, but old

    Illustrations look like 60s or 70s. Ok maybe not that old, but they are dated. Im interested in applications for outdoors situations, so it looks like it should provide good info for that. Pretty sure most of these methods have been replaced by better techniques now.
    Still it was cheap
