This book goes far beyond traditional first aid and embraces a new philosophy in wilderness medicine education. It brings to fruition a juxtaposition of more than ten years of research, clinical experience, and teaching into a powerful guide for those who travel far from modern civilisation. The book is unique in that it specifically addresses the components included in most adventure medical kits when discussing the treatment of medical emergencies, and it introduces a myriad of improvised techniques that empower the reader to provide meaningful emergency care when the first aid materials are not readily available.

With an increase in visits to remote and dangerous locations around the world, the number of serious and fatal injuries and illnesses associated with these expeditions has markedly increased. Medical personnel working in or near such locations are not always explicitly trained in the management of unique environmental injuries, such as high-altitude sickness, the bends, lightning strikes, frostbite, acute dehydration, venomous stings and bites, and tropical diseases. Many health care professionals seek training in the specialty of wilderness medicine to cope with the health risks faced when far removed from professional care resources, and the American College of Emergency Medicine has recently mandated that a minimum level of proficiency needs to be exhibited by all ER physicians in this discipline. This book covers everything a prospective field physician or medical consultant needs to prepare for when beginning an expedition and explains how to treat a variety of conditions in a concise, clinically oriented format.

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
