Free (Kindle) NOLS Wilderness Medicine [First Aid Guide/Textbook]
NOLS Wilderness Medicine: 4th Edition by Tod Schimpelfenig and Joan Safford is a field first-aid guide intended as an easy DIY textbook, free courtesy of publisher Stackpole's NOLS Library series.
Currently free @ Amazon (not available to Canadians).
A vital resource for outdoor enthusiasts, this book covers fundamental topics in first aid--patient assessment, shock, soft tissue injury, burns, fractures and dislocations, and chest, head, and abdominal injury. It explains how to handle environmental problems posed by heat, cold, water, altitude, and poisonous plants and animals.
Also discussed are issues related to expedition medicine as well as leadership, teamwork, and communication for rescue groups. While risk can be minimized through good judgment, skills, and experience, being prepared for emergencies in the wild is an essential component of good outdoor leadership.
