World-renowned authority and author, Dr. Paul Auerbach, and a team of experts offer proven, practical, visual guidance for effectively diagnosing and treating the full range of emergencies and health problems encountered in situations where time and resources are scarce. Every day, more and more people are venturing into the wilderness and extreme environments, or are victims of horrific natural disasters...and many are unprepared for the dangers and aftermath that come with these episodes. Whether these victims are stranded on mountaintops, lost in the desert, injured on a remote bike path, or ill far out at sea, this indispensable resource--now with online access at www.expertconsult.com for greater accessibility and portability-- equips rescuers and health care professionals to effectively address and prevent injury and illness in the wilderness! This textbook is widely referred to as "The Bible of Wilderness Medicine."
"There is a reason a book makes it to a sixth edition. This is the definitive book on wilderness medicine. It is an excellent, thorough book on critical and exciting concepts in this still expanding realm. The topics are concise yet cover a broad spectrum of environments and clinical situations not commonly seen. A number of the subjects are not exclusive to wilderness situations and are applicable to everyday life in the emergency room and hospital. Although the book is large and heavy, possibly limiting its use in the field, the online version (access is provided with the purchase of the book) may be a viable option for those with portable devices." - Michael D. Zwank, MD, RDMS, FACEP(University of Minnesota Medical School) Doody 4 stars!
"When on vacation, who knows when you might need to treat a Gila-monster bite or use dental floss to close scalp lacerations? 'Wilderness Medicine,' edited by Paul S. Auerbach, professor of surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine's emergency division, has the answers." - Laura Landro, Wall Street Journal
