Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My intitial intention for this book (Wilderness and Travel Medicine: : A Complete Wilderness Medicine and Travel Medicine Handbook) was for it to be a quick reference "cliff notes" guide for my personal use when traveling - something I could store on my phone so I could have it where-ever i go. As you can see by the contents page it grew into something quite a bit more than "cliff notes".

Actually, I feel the contents still does not give a full picture of all what is inside this book (I limited it to first subtitles because otherwise the contents would have been long enough to be a small publication in itself!)

I am not a doctor or nurse. The highest level of professional medical training I have had is Wilderness First Responder of which the skills I used during my former profession.

It means that I had to do ALOT of research to create this book. Nothing has been "made up" and all the information has come from at least two reliable sources. Also, a lot of time was spent "deciphering" medical terms so the average person could intuitively understand the material.

Although this book is jam packed with information covering a wide variety of field-treatable ailments, no amount of reading can compare to a practical based medical course with a professional medical trainer. A standard first aid course is better than nothing, but a Wilderness First Aid Course or higher is preferable.

How to Use This Book

The information in this book is very much intertwined, so a lot of chapters are referred to each other throughout the book.

When you see something in italics it is an indicator of where you can find additional information about that subject.

This book is two parts:

Part I: Must Read Information The first part is all the background knowledge needed to effectively use the information in this book. It covers the following:

Anatomy

A basic rundown of how the body's systems work individually and as a whole.

Prevention Medicine

How to avoid getting sick and/or injured in the first place.

First Aid Kit

An inventory and simple explanation of a suggested minimalist first aid kit for travelers.

Medications Guide

Important information on the safe use of the medications referred to in this book.

Immediate First Aid

Contains the information needed on what to do medically in immediate, life threatening situations.

Secondary Exam

A secondary exam will help you to make an accurate medical diagnosis.

Moving a Patient

Learn a variety of methods to safely move a patient.

Part II: Diagnosis and Treatments

This section of the book is all the information you need to diagnose and treat specific medical problems that have not been covered in the Immediate First Aid chapter.

Information for each condition contains:

* A brief description about the condition.

* Symptoms that may be experienced as a result of the condition.

* Appropriate treatment(s) for the condition depending on the situation.

* Other supplementary information may also be included where applicable, e.g., causes, prevention, alternative/natural remedies, possible complications.

Note: Depending on your situation, many of the treatments may not be viable. Innovate and do the best with what you have.

I hope you do not need to refer to this book too often, but in the cases that you do, I hope it proves to be a useful reference.

Perhaps you will be happy to know that although the end result of this book is monsturous compared to my initial intention I still keep a copy of it on my phone and refer to it whenever I need to.

Sincerely,

Sam Fury
