Here you get the Ranger Medic Handbook Combined with the First Aid Field Manual

These two manuals combine to 380 pages of life saving information

Historically in warfare, the majority of all combat deaths have occurred prior to a
casualty ever receiving advanced trauma management. The execution of the Ranger mission profile in the Global War on Terrorism and our legacy tasks undoubtedly will increase the number of lethal wounds.

Ranger leaders can significantly reduce the number of Rangers who die of
wounds sustained in combat by simply targeting optimal medical capability in close proximity to the point of wounding. Survivability of the traumatized Ranger who sustains a wound in combat is in the hands of the first responding Ranger who puts a pressure dressing or tourniquet and controls the bleeding of his fallen comrade. Directing casualty response management and evacuation is a Ranger leader task; ensuring technical medical competence is a Ranger Medic task.

A solid foundation has been built for Ranger leaders and medics to be successful in managing casualties in a combat environment. An integrated team response from non-medical personnel and medical providers must be in place to care for the wounded Ranger. The Ranger First Responder, Squad EMT, Ranger Medic Advanced Tactical Practitioner, and Ranger leaders, in essence all Rangers must unite to provide medical care collectively, as a team, without sacrificing the flow and violence of the battle at hand.

An integrated team approach to casualty response and care will directly translate to the reduction of the died of wounds rate of combat casualties and minimize the turbulence associated with these events in times of crisis. The true success of the Ranger Medical Team will be defined by its ability to complete the mission and greatly reduce preventable combat death. Rangers value honor and reputation more than their lives, and as such will attempt to lay down their own lives in defense of their comrades. The Ranger Medic will do no less.

    Would be better as a actual book

    The book is hard to read because its printed as it would appear in a book. On the nook you have to keep going back and forth from one page to another to see all the info. Also there are no chapter titles so if you wanted to look for gunshot wounds or how to stitch a wound you wouldn't know where to look. I read a lot of military handbooks and this one seems like it was put together in a sloppy way. A ton of medical info though.

    Sad, but true

    Saw this while browsing through the book section at BN. I read the only 2 reviews that were here and hoped they were mistaken/exagerating. But, alas, they were correct. I was excited at the prospect of this book's contents (sounds very usefull info to have while hiking, camping, etc.), but the formatting of this book makes it nearly impossible to read - especially if you were to refer to it during an emergency. Hope someone corrects the formatting.

    This is a fraud. This is actually a pirated copy of the 2007 version with a fake 2011 cover.


    DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!
