Field Guide Sweetness

One of the better books out there to keep in your backpack is:   

Field Guide to Wilderness Medicine.

It is in it’s third edition and published by Mosby Elsevier. It is a portable version based off of Dr. Paul Auerbach’s “Wilderness Medicine”.

Topics range from basic CPR to Knots to Mushroom Toxicity..  It’s a must have if you are going to be out and about for an extended time or if you are going to be a good ways from definitive care.

ISBN 978-1-4160-4698-1

887 pages of awesome



Seeing how there wasn’t an EMS blog that dealt with the wilderness or remote areas, I thought I would start one up. Some of the other topics I plan to cover are aspects of Search and Rescue (SAR), Tracking, Books, Equipment and hopefully interviews, etc…

So I’m glad you stopped by to check it out and hope you visit again.
