Product Description

Exploring the wilderness is both invigorating and potentially dangerous---even the most respectful and cautious outdoor enthusiast can experience an accident or mishap. This book makes sure both novice and expert alike are prepared! This guide can be used by solo travelers or groups to treat injuries and make the victim more comfortable and safe during the time it takes to get professional medical attention. Discover how to apply first aid to a variety of wounds; treat abdominal pains and discomforts; soothe bites and stings; deal with heat and cold injuries; and wrap sprains, fractures, and dislocated joints. In addition, you'll find information on elementary CPR as well as lists of essential items for an outdoor first aid kit.
