Description:

Comprehensive yet compact, practical, and enduring, Improvised Medicine: Providing Care in Extreme Environments, Second Edition, is the one book to toss into your bag when going to practice medicine in global, disaster, or other resource-poor settings, including theaters of war, regions of civil unrest, and economically deprived areas.

Full of practical clinical pearls and field-tested strategies, this indispensable guide provides detailed instructions on how to work successfully outside of your comfort zone. It demonstrates how to devise effective treatment solutions when the traditional tools (medications, equipment, and staff) are unavailable or when providing care outside your primary area of expertise.

In any crisis, from power failures and computer crashes to floods, tsunamis, and earthquakes, knowing how to deal with the unique challenges encountered saves lives and communities. This reference gives you that knowledge and inspires innovative crisis resolution.

User’s Review:

This is hands down one of the best supplemental readings to standard paramedic education. This book helped me think outside the box and become a more dynamic paramedic.

I am an RN, s Wilderness First Aid instructor and am very passionate about wilderness medicine. This book is great for medical professionals who will be traveling for missions, expeditions. I also would argue that this is a great resource for any health professional who wants to be prepared for disaster situations. I have listed to a few lectures by Dr. Iserson, and he is extremely knowledgeable in this situation and very experienced. This book is not cute tricks and the authors opinion. These are researched facts and practiced techniques.
