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

5.0 out of 5 stars 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).
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book, eTextbook version is completely different. Aug. 9 2016
By Mr. Michael Dacre - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is amazing, beautifully written and incredibly useful.

However, be aware that the Kindle edition is not a digital version of the textbook, it is an e-reader edition, meaning that it has more than 168,000 pages and is not searchable; it is great for just reading for fun, but not good for reference. If you want a true digital edition you need to purchase the hardcover book and either digitize it yourself or send it to a company to do—either way digitizing will destroy the book. Also, the e-reader version is included for free if you buy the hardcover book anyway, so you may just want to fork out the extra $25 and buy that. The attached picture shows part of the first content page of the textbook (I think that is around physical page 10), it is page 2,287 of the ebook.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
