Long Description
The cutting edge in medical training for wilderness rescue and self care

Wilderness First Responder is a comprehensive text for the recognition, treatment, and prevention of backcountry emergencies. It's essential reading for wilderness educators, trip leaders, guides, search and rescue groups, and anyone who works or plays far from definitive medical care.

This invaluable resource includes expert, step-by-step instructions, clear illustrations, and “Signs and Symptoms” sidebars designed to help anyone provide immediate care in the wilderness―whenever they are more than an hour away from an ambulance or a hospital. It shows how to conduct a patient assessment, improvise when ideal materials are not handy, and decide whether or not to evacuate a patient. Readers will learn how to assess and treat:

  • Airway obstructions
  • Cardiac arrest
  • External and internal bleeding
  • Shock
  • Spine injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Chest injuries
  • Abdominal injuries
  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Athletic injuries
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Cold- or heat-induced injuries
  • Altitude sickness
  • Insect bites & stings
  • Diabetic emergencies
  • Poisoning emergencies
  • Allergic reactions and anaphylaxis
  • And much, much more

We just completed a major upgrade to the backend with a minor face lift to the web site. More changes are coming soon!

We completed the upgrade that changed the way we store company data and connect it to the product details. This required a set major database changes and some minor but important web site changes.

Over the next couple weeks we will roll out various other web site upgrades that make use of these new changes and provide you with better access to our data.

As always, if you see anything odd on the site, please let us know and we will get it fixed right away.
