5.0 out of 5 stars "EXTREMELY USEFUL, INFORMATIVE, AND CONCISE!", June 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Survival Medicine Handbook: A Guide for When Help is Not on the Way (Paperback)
Within the last 30 years, after working in the health field as a medical professional and obtaining a copy of the first edition of this very helpful guide, this book is outstanding in every aspect as a valuable reference to emergency situations, where no other help is available. Although I have collected hundreds of books that cover this topic, I felt this one is extremely useful for my daughter to have in her home. This handbook outlines several conditions for one to identify with as it offers step-by-step instructions, with solutions for unexpected health problems. This informative guide also prepares for any disaster, where help is not on the way. It is specifically designed for the non-medical professional to help deal and cope with unexpected issues during emergencies. Some of the topics covered are fractures, nosebleed, chest pain, and much more. Dr. Joseph Alton highlights several medical conditions, covering over 100 medical issues. In addition, he provides information on how to handle different situations, what to look for, and how to treat. This is a valuable, essential reference book for every home. Highly recommended!

As a Nurse & A Mom to a 'Special Needs' child, my main reason to purchase this book was to Gift it to my daughter, but read it First together. It's an excellent Medical guide & easy to read. So, to us, it's worth every penny. It's definitely a Must Read guide & extremely useful. Thank you for your feedback & recommendations!
