This book is as all-encompassing as I believe it can be. From respiratory infections to fractures to hypothermia to pregnancy and delivery, the chapters and the knowledge continue. There is even a detailed chapter on suturing; including when-and when not-to close a wound. If you can think of a medical problem that you may have to deal with in a collapse, there's information about it in this book and more.

This book review has no bearing on Amazon. Amazon is a great place to shop and buy things and has great customer service.
I was a little surprised on the chapter about hepatitis that it will eventually heal itself, I didn't know that and will have to check with my own doc. But the authors were honest in saying that someone who has a heart attack without access to a hospital probably won't survive, even with CPR.
I'd guess the hardest part about writing this type of book is that so many injuries & illnesses require medicine which most of us can't access. My doctor would certainly not write a prescription for meds I don't need for a "just in case" scenario, or triple my normal dosage just because I'm a prepper. He'd probably think I was nuts. What I learned is that without any type of medical training I wouldn't be much useful in a medical emergency beyond what experience I already have, but I'll toss this in my emergency bag anyway.
Thanks to Amazon's generous return policy I have returned this book for a credit that will be used on things which will actually increase our level of self-sufficiency.
