The Skipper's Medical Emergency Handbook is designed to assist all who go to sea - whether on a day excursion, a holiday cruise or an even longer trip. It will provide practical advice, boost confidence, solve problems and minimise danger for all on board. Step-by-step instructions, explanatory illustrations and flow charts provide an at-a-glance reference on how to prevent, treat and care for the sick and injured at sea. And there is advice on pre-voyage preparations, establishing emergency procedures, first response and assessment of illnesses and injury, right through to offshore aftercare and recovery. The Skipper's Medical Emergency Handbook is a comprehensive and practical resource for novices or experienced sailors and motorboaters.
