From the Publisher
Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook provides step-by-step illustrated procedures for performance of surgical procedures under hostile and/or primitive conditions. It offers alternatives to conventional procedures for management of a given problem that can be used under less than optimal circumstances. The physical presentation is designed to hold up under adverse conditions. It is waterproof, tear resistant and ring bound so that updated material can be added at will. It is in a small trim size for ease of carrying and printed on a special stock to aid with reading under poor light conditions.
