This publication also includes the Wilderness Pre-hospital Emergency Care Curriculum suggested by the Wilderness Medical Society for inclusion in the instruction of Wilderness Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT-W). This book is a must for anyone dealing with emergency planning, first aid procedures, or care of persons heading into remote areas for sport or employment. Learn the latest techniques approved and recommended by the Wilderness Medical Society.

Customer Review: wilderness medical society practice guidelines

The information on each topic was well organized and levels of care were discussed. I also liked the fact that when there was a difference of opinion concerning treatments each was discussed. There were no illustrations and the book is not a text for teaching wilderness medical care. Even as a trained First Responder I found some of the discussions were very tecnical and called for knowledge beyond the training of most outdoorsmen. It is not a guide for the beginner but rather for those with advanced first aid or medical training.
