This is the official medical guide from the US Department of Defense that Army Rangers, Green Berets, Navy SEALS, and other military operators refer to when they are dealing with emergency medical situations—burns, broken bones, head injuries, and more.
This edition of the Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook is perfect and practical for active military forces, civilian first responders, and anyone who might find themselves in a life-and-death situation without easy access to medical care.
Over 100 comprehensive illustrations show the proper techniques for medical care, from basic first-aid and orthopedics to instructions for emergency war surgery and even veterinary medicine. Questions are listed so that the medic can obtain an accurate patient history and perform a complete physical examination. Diagnoses are made easier with information on the distinctive features of each illness.
This straightforward manual is sure to assist any reader faced with a medical issue or emergency.
