Advanced First Aid Afloat: For Those Who Sail Far from Hands-on Medical Assistance
Over the years since its first publication in 1972, more than 30,000 blue water sailors have looked to this book when in injury or illness struck at sea. Virtually every accident or ailment that might occur when professional help is unavailable is squarely faced and dealt with, using layman's language. Step-by-step instructions allay panic and calmly take the reader from diagnosis through treatment and follow-up care. The book has been revised in this fifth edition to include new methods of treatment and the most appropriate drugs and dosages.
