Product Description


"There is a reason a book makes it to a sixth edition. This is the definitive book on wilderness medicine. It is an excellent, thorough book on critical and exciting concepts in this still expanding realm. The topics are concise yet cover a broad spectrum of environments and clinical situations not commonly seen. A number of the subjects are not exclusive to wilderness situations and are applicable to everyday life in the emergency room and hospital. Although the book is large and heavy, possibly limiting its use in the field, the online version (access is provided with the purchase of the book) may be a viable option for those with portable devices." - Michael D. Zwank, MD, RDMS, FACEP(University of Minnesota Medical School) Doody 4 stars!

"When on vacation, who knows when you might need to treat a Gila-monster bite or use dental floss to close scalp lacerations? 'Wilderness Medicine,' edited by Paul S. Auerbach, professor of surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine's emergency division, has the answers." - Laura Landro, Wall Street Journal

Book is excellant, Online access is poor Dec 20 2011
By S. Morris - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have a previous edition of the book. The book is wonderful. Elsevier's on line access is not the best. For this book the publisher is clueless on where people might use this book. Unless you carry power and a satellite system in most if not all wilderness settings you will not have access to the " wonderful, portable , online content." A previous edition of this book was sold with a full content CD (which one paid extra for) . Elsevier should offer that option for this edition.
It is hard to be too positive on the content of this book but the online access won't do you much good unless you are sitting in your comfortable office. I would probably buy this if I could get a full content CD. As it is since I have access to the book online it won't help me much to own a copy.

I am new to Kindle but that format doesn't seem to be useful for a reference text.

Interestingly at this time (12/20/2011) you can get the book cheaper at the ELSEVIer site than on Amazon ( not the usual case).

I could throw out all my other book about medicine. This book had everything you'll ever need. After finally getting through the 2276 pages I found this book to have all the things that have ever wanted in a medical tome. If you want to spend some money on a book, this one is well worth it. Most books that cost the same, or more, are half the size and not even close in the completeness of this book. Buy this book as your first and you'll be well-armed to face anything.
It is true that this book will not be the version that you'll put in your go-bag to take with you into the wild, but it's a great read to study before you go and there are other, more compact, versions by the same author that will fit nicely into your trauma bag. That's what I'm planning on doing and using this outstanding volume to study up on everything else.It isn't just about wilderness medicine and how to treat issues while on a expedition, it has procedures for common things that are nice to review if you haven't done it in a while.
Buy this and never want to for any medical information again.

Indispensible July 9 2013
By W. Kurtz - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is book is simply the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to wilderness medicine there is. It covers everything from high altitude cerebral edema to how to euthanize an elephant if you are using it as a pack animal and it is injured. The text is over 2,000 pages and the book weighs in at about 7 pounds. Needless to say it is not a field guide. I had wanted this book for years and finally splurged. As much as I love this book it is not for everyone. It is very in depth and highly technical. It is written in medical language for healthcare professionals, MDs, RNs, EMTs, and paramedics. Unless you are very into medicine and comfortable with a good bit of jargon this might not be the best choice. If you do fit into the above categories or have a pharma or science background you will probably be happy with this book. The array of topics is astounding. It covers tactical medicine, rodeo medicine, hazardous plants, animals and is the best reference I have found on tropical diseases. Use the Amazon look inside feature to see if this text is right for you. If not there are many other excellent books on wilderness medicine includes those from NOLS, the national outdoor leadership school.

everything you ever wanted to know about your health and the wild Aug. 29 2013
By J. Minty - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love this book. It has everything: from photos of various wildlife, to detailed pathophysiology of acute mountain illness, you can learn so much about wilderness medicine. Also has a section about survival equipment, things to consider carrying in your pack. Brought along to a wilderness medicine certification course, and it was great supplementary information for what was presented in lecture. My husband reads this book too, just for fun. A great investment for anyone who spends a lot of time in the woods, hiking, etc. Recommend the field manual (separate book, more condensed version) to actually carry with you for backpacking. But if you need to know how to make a litter to carry someone out, or splint a leg, you can't go wrong with this text.
