9780160808968: Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook, 2nd Edition

A comprehensive reference designed for Special Operations Forces (SOF) medics. Developed as a primary medical information resource and field guide for the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) medics, the Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook defines the standard of health care delivery under adverse and general field conditions. It is organized according to symptoms, organ systems, specialty areas, operational environments and procedures. It emphasizes acute care in all its forms (gynecology, general medicine, dentistry, poisonings, infestations, parasitic infections, acute infections, hyper and hypothermia, high altitude, aerospace, and dive medicine, and much, much more) as well as veterinary medicine and sanitation practice under primitive conditions. It is the work of over 130 contributors and 57 reviewers from both the military and civilian practice. Topics are covered in a consistent subjective/objective/assessment/plan (SOAP) format. It is heavily illustrated with color for quick identification of dermatologic conditions, insect bites and stings and exposure problems. The second edition contains updated and expanded material from the 2001 release, including Pediatrics, Nursing, and ENT Problems. 

Printed on tear-resistant, water-resistant synthetic paper. A 5.25 inch by 8.5 inch quick-reference guide with a three hole punched ring binding. It includes 193 figures (37 in color) and 38 quick reference tables.
