?"In summary, Paul Auerbach's name will be forever associated with wilderness medicine, and his textbooks, including this one, will always be the premier works in this field. The latest edition of these books has surpassed "wilderness medicine," and this book is the best "first aid" text that I have seen. It should become the standard text not just for wilderness travelers but for everyone who wants to know how to do first aid and do it right. At a cost of $24.95, this is the best bargain in town, even if it only saves your life once." - The Journal of Emergency Medicine, Vol. 39, No. 3, p. 391, 2010 "The new edition is the ultimate handbook for anyone participating in outdoor activities or eco-tourism far from medical care, and it was written by an ...authority in wilderness medicine." "Best Health Books of 2009" - Wall Street Journal 2009 "By far the best book on the subject." - Field & Stream "If a doctor isn't with you on your wilderness wanderings, this splendid book should be in your pack." - New York Times "Anyone who travels to out-of-the-way places will take comfort in this handy, updated guide." - Publishers Weekly "If you can't have an experienced emergency physician with you when you're traveling off the beaten path, take this book. And read it first!" - Whole Earth "This reference work contains critical information for lay people who encounter unexpected hazards ranging from bad weather and snake bites to sprained ankles and heat stroke. Of course, the book doesn't guarantee that lay people will become certified paramedics; however, armed with 535 pages of detailed information, most readers will feel more confident making decisions that could mean the difference between life and death. Dr. Auerbach's advice, captured in this reference book, teaches us how to safely enjoy "green" exercise." -? Carole Carson author of? From Fat to Fit: Turn Yourself into a Weapon of Mass Reduction and serves as the national coach for the AARP Fat to Fit Community Challenge, a free weight-loss program welcoming all ages. ?"Auerbach delivers a substantial amount of material in a well-written and concise paperback that can serve as a medical manual emphasizing outdoor hazards, with therapeutic recommendations extended to a clinic setting. The book is divided into major medical problems, minor medical problems, disorders related to specific environments, miscellaneous information, and appendices. Medicine for the Outdoors will prove useful for a broad spectrum of readers needing a credible reference on medical care in remote environments or even in urban environments in the aftermath of a disaster. " - JAMA October 2009

Detailed, Advanced First Aid 28. Juni 2010
Von Cal Zant - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have recently read a few books on first responder type medical aid for wilderness scenarios ... and this is BY FAR the best. If you are looking for a book that goes well beyond even advanced first aid, and presents the material in a pratical way using common languge ... this book is it. There is a balance with books like this on either being too elementary (i.e. "dumbed-down") or being too academic (i.e. filled with technical jargon that goes over the head of most people), but this book is a great balance between the two. The author has a gift of explaining things in a very straight-forward fashion.

Astounding Depth and Breadth of Information 4. November 2010
Von SteveG - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book covers almost every conceivable medical situation you will likely encounter in the field. The only downside is that the book is too big and heavy to carry with you during many of the outdoor activities where you might need it. It is ideal for a survivalist homesteader or other remote but relatively stationary situation, or even as part of a vehicle kit. It includes medications and dosages used to treat various maladies, and would prove an invaluable reference for anyone in an emergency situation away from traditional medical services. It is also a useful tool in creating an emergency medical kit targetted at specific activitied and situations, giving detailed information on the items needed for each type of emergency. Training is key, and no book will ever replace professional emergency medical personnel, but this book uses layman's language to describe medical emergencies and their treatments and can assist you when the professionals are not available.

The best guideout there. Period. 15. Februar 2010
Von Clifton C. Castleman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As a Wilderness EMT and wilderness medicine instructor, I often find myself asking myself questions or being asked questions that I wouldhave otherwise never conjured up. Needless to say, I wouldn't carry this "bible of the backcountry" with me everywhere I go while out enjoying mother nature's splendor, but it certainly has its own spot in my emergency medicine library collection! Well written, easy to follow and understand, and the graphics are clear and concise. A great resource for any Wilderness First Aider, WFR or even WEMT!

Take an EMT with you 9. November 2011
Von M. Verber - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this because it had great reviews and was touted as the best to have in outdoor medicine. Personally, I was kind of hoping for more of a "this is what you do if you are out here with no help and best ways to treat different possible injuries" kind of book. I was not looking for a "give some of the huge quantity of antibiotics you brought with you, use some of the extensive medical equipment you brought, and medivac immediately" kind of book. If I wanted something like that, at least it could have a list in the back of all equipment and medications used in this book and how to carry that much into the woods/mountains etc. A good first aid guide contains the same info without the medications. Feel like I wasted my money on this.

The main phrase written in this book is "Get them to a medical facility! Dissapointing 23. Oktober 2011
Von Harpreet - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
VERY dissapointing! The first think I looked up was how to deal with a posionous spider bite. The book recommends ice, pain killers and getting the person to a medical facility. How about a suction extractor and a poultice made of mud, charcoal, clay or grated potatoe to pull the venom out to keep it from surging through the system??? Emergency after emergency is dealt with by stablizing and getting the person to a medical facility. I got this book hoping to learn how to deal with things where medical facilities may not be available.
Is this the best there is? I can't believe it got 5 stars!!!! Can anyone tell me where to get a REAL book on how to deal with medical emergencies! What a waste of money!
