Show Description

Small enough to fit in a pack or pocket, this reference covers minor matters and provides information about what to do in a backcountry emergency until professional help arrives. It focusses on practical information and the basic skills needed to safely and successfully get by in the outdoors. Learn to assess and treat shock, wrap fractures and sprains, manage wounds, soothe bites and stings, deal with heat and cold injuries, tend to illnesses and altitude sickness, and assemble a first-aid kit. Full-colour photos and illustrations complement concise, clear text.
