From the Publisher"As an emergency physician and a wilderness medicine physician, Dr. Auerbach’s Field Guide, in its fourth edition, continues to be my "go to" resource in preparing for and treating bread and butter medicine in the backcountry as well as those problems specific to wilderness environments where I’m not working regularly. The book, available to hold in your hand or downloadable, leaves no topic uncovered, yet still presents each topic in a concise enough format so referencing diagnosis and treatment of Traveler’s Diarrhea in a particular region or Ciguatera Fish Poisoning takes less than 20 seconds for the trained practitioner.
The book contains a significant number of excellent color photos for indentifying poisonous mushrooms as well as figures for understanding improvisational techniques such as the Fireman’s Carry. I teach multiple Wilderness Medicine courses each year, to students, residents and trained providers, and this book is a must have on all of my courses."
