I started reading this because the title cought my attention. The educational status of the author is not mentioned. But he adresses himself to a group of people called "Pre-Hospital Care Providers" (PHCP). Maybe he is a PHCP himself. Anyway, a PHCP seems to hop around the world a lot, and the photo's in the book testify for this. And he seems to prefer places devoid of hospitals, Medical Doctors, regular supply of medical stuff. In other words, places devoid of a civilized health care system.

I felt that it must be getting outdated but so much of it is still relevant that it is worth the time to read. In a world where we are only educated on plan A and B, it was great to read about options C and D for the austere environment.

Great medical text for advanced medical care under adverse conditions. Along the lines of EMERGENCY WAR SURGERY but much more practical
