The Wilderness First Aid Handbook is a handy, quick-reference guide easily accessible with basic wilderness first aid knowledge, but it does not require advanced degrees or experience with medicine and prehospital care. Recognizing that certain knowledge and procedures are outside the scope of a layperson’s training, Dr. Grant Lipman limits the use of technical terms and advanced techniques that may be unfamiliar to some readers or beyond their comfort zone. This system-based, easy-to-follow guide assists the first aid provider when encountering most wilderness emergencies, from cold and heat concerns and blister treatments to high altitude illness and lightning injury prevention—and much more. Typically the most challenging decision in the wilderness environment is when to evacuate a sick or potentially sick person, and as such, each section has detailed decision-making steps to inform you of when to be concerned and when to get out. This guidance is based upon the recent evidence-based consensus statement published by the Wilderness Medical Society on the scope of practice of wilderness first aid. Filled with original, full-color artwork illustrating the techniques and procedures described and with internal-spiral binding and waterproof pages handy for travel into extreme environments, The Wilderness First Aid Handbook is a must-have for every back pocket or backpack.

Grounded in the collective wisdom of hundreds of instructors, rescue personnel and medical practitioners, this text explores medical problems in a broad wilderness context including cold injuries, altitude illness, diving and lightening injuries and toxins, among others and pairs that exploration with the realities of solving such problems in the field, well outside the confines and comforts of mainstream medicine. Wilderness and Rescue Medicine: A Practical Guide for the Basic and Advanced Practitioner provides: The most up-to-date guidance on practicing medicine in a wilderness context An introduction to critical body systems and the general principals of trauma Specific information on environmental and backcountry medicine An examination of the medical role in search and rescue missions"

Recognizing the lack of a national standard for wilderness first aid, The Boy Scouts of America formed a Task Force consisting of wilderness medicine specialists, medical epidemiologists, legal expertise, and educators to develop a curriculum and doctrine for a 16 hour wilderness first aid (WFA) course. Buck Tilton was the lead author of this project. As author he had to amalgamate the results of the literature research performed by the Task Force and through multiple revisions until this final product was developed. The Task Force is indebted to Buck for his hours of dedication to the project. Persons taking this course will have an appreciation of how wilderness first aid differs from standard, urban fist aid. Many readers will want to learn more about this fascinating and critical skill needed by all outdoor travelers. Some will be inspired to continue their education with a wilderness first responder course. This book contains the full doctrine that the Task Force approved. It provides a portable resource for use in the field as well as a text for the WFA course. It will be your introduction to the basic skills and knowledge all wilderness travelers should possess.
