Revolutionary advances in emergency medicine, knowledge, techniques and equipment provide the foundation for lay people to provide emergency care. This guide specifically addresses the treatment of medical emergencies and introduces a myriad of improvised techniques that empower the reader to provide meaningful emergency care even when first-aid materials aren't readily available. The information in these pages is intended to help you manage medical emergencies in remote environments when professional medical care or rescue is not readily available. With that said, it is not a substitute for taking a comprehensive first-aid or wilderness medicine course or for seeking prompt medical care in the event of accident or illness.
