Overview

The Wilderness First Responder is a comprehensive text for the recognition, treatment, and prevention of wilderness emergencies. It is a priceless resource for wilderness educators, trip leaders, guides, search and rescue groups, and all people who work or play far from definitive medical care. Inside this how-to resource are expert, step-by-step instructions, clear illustrations, and 'Signs and Symptoms' sidebars designed to help you provide care in wilderness and urban settings - whenever you are more than an hour away from an ambulance or a hospital. You'll learn about patient assessment and patient evacuation and strengthen your ability to improvise when ideal materials are not at hand. The Wilderness First Responder was written by Buck Tilton, co-founder of the Wilderness Medicine Institute, with the assistance of more than a dozen medical professionals. It represents more than a century and a half of combined experience in wilderness medicine, rescue, and education. The Wilderness First Responder is a must-have for anyone who may be responsible for the care and safety of self and/or others when immediate access to a hospital is delayed.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Suitable as a textbook for a course, but also for individual study by readers with no medical background and who do not intend to go into the field. The principles and methods described could be useful anywhere, but the emphasis is on injury or illness where medical help is more than an hour away, specialized tools are not available, and the environment may be harsh.
