    I am using this guide as my main source for teaching first aid to farmers in rural mountain villages in Vietnam. It worked so well last year, I will be using the same syllabus derived from Mr Isaac’s book. I work with Vets With a Mission […] and you can follow our first aid training team on the website blog. The villages where we teach are over an hour from any hospital and there is no EMS. That is why I use wilderness medicine as a guide. I taught Combat LIfesavers training to many, many soldiers and call this program Village Lifesavers. We do three days of training and give each student a simple first aid kit to keep. We also have doctors training the staff at the local village clinics….so you can see where we are heading…….developing an EMS system where there is none. Exciting….and I really want to thank Outward Bound and Mr Isaac for their handbook.

    An absolute classic. Guides you all the way from the initial assessment to treating specific injuries and illnesses assuming that help is more than a few hours away. While it will be very difficult to remember every possible treatment for each situation, this book will at least give you a good foundation to build upon. The key is to read and study about the most likely injuries for your proposed activity. Highly recommended reference and study book.

    This review is from: Outward Bound Wilderness First-Aid Handbook (Paperback)
    This is amazing. It’s actually fun to read – made me laugh out loud at least once. It presents information in a way that I, at least, find easy to understand and remember – different problems are described in terms of a common set of core principles. So instead of having to remember a whole pile of different problems and procedures you end up with a common-sense approach that falls back on a handful of basic ideas.
