helpful basics, lots of things to think about.  needs updated edition - a bit dated with new technology.  but most camps probably are 'oldschool' techniques anyway.  helpful read.

This is an invaluable resource for all camp nurses. It is well-written, concise, and doesn't take up much room in the infirmary! It is the one nursing book I take with me to camp.
