Review

'My old editions of this established book look very worn, as they have travelled far and wide. Two reasons for this are the content and the fact it is pocket size. This edition is slightly bigger, thicker and has a PVC cover. However, the expansion allows for a clearer layout, more durable paper and additional information, and it is still pocket size, an important factor.This book I feel would be an asset to any member both whilst working and playing. It will also be a good complement to many first aid courses we may attend and, for once, it is something which is inexpensive.'(AMI news / June 2007)'The small size of this attractive new series launched by Cicerone will make them very suitable for carrying on the hill. All are well illustrated with colour photos, sketches and map, and have solid plastic covers.First Aid and Wilderness Medicine packs an enormous amount of information into 240 well-laid-out pages covering prevention, dealing with an accident and illnesses.The authors have plenty of practical experience from many wild places, including the Himalaya and Antarctica. I can't offer a medical opinion, but this strikes me as a book I would like to have had with me on my trips into the wild.'(Irish Mountain Log / Summer 2007)

Synopsis

This long established guide to first aid in the wild when you depend entirely on your own knowledge and resources now joins the Cicerone stable. It is written by doctors with major outdoor experience. This guide to first aid sets out clearly the protocols and procedures to follow. It talks about: preparation of first aid kits, and good preventative practice; dealing with life-threatening emergencies; specific injuries, such as head injuries, burns, broken bones, sprains; and problems associated with location, such as cold or hot weather, altitude, dehydration, food poisoning and digestive disorders, infectious diseases, bites and stings, rashes and respiratory problems. All topics are clearly referenced, and easy to refer to. It is an invaluable point of reference for all who travel and take part in outdoor, wilderness and mountain activities.
