Overview

A Guide to Practicing Medicine in Challenging Environments

Wilderness and Rescue Medicine: A Practical Guide for the Basic and Advanced Practitioner provides the critical insight and tools required to practice medicine in remote or challenging environments.

There is no place in field medicine for unreasonable restrictions on the practical application of medical judgment—that is the guiding philosophy of this user-friendly guide. Wilderness and Rescue Medicine: A Practical Guide for the Basic and Advanced Practitioner teaches readers how to improvise, adapt and exercise reasonable judgment at any level of medical training and in any difficult environment, from the desert to the oceans, from the backwoods to cities stricken by disaster.

Grounded in the collective wisdom of hundreds of instructors, rescue personnel and medical practitioners, this text explores medical problems in a broad wilderness context—including cold injuries, altitude illness, diving and lightening injuries and toxins, among others—and pairs that exploration with the realities of solving such problems in the field, well outside the confines and comforts of mainstream medicine.

Wilderness and Rescue Medicine: A Practical Guide for the Basic and Advanced Practitioner provides:

• The most up-to-date guidance on practicing medicine in a wilderness context
• An introduction to critical body systems and the general principals of trauma
• Specific information on environmental and backcountry medicine
• An examination of the medical role in search and rescue missions
