Written by military nurses, the Battlefield and Disaster Nursing Pocket Guide is the premier quick reference guide for battlefield nurses on the front lines. This pocket guide contains critical assessment and treatment information, as well as numerous medication guides to ensure accurate care in the field.

The care of patients with injuries received on the battlefield or in a disaster setting is specialized. Traumatic injuries on the battlefield may be more complex or unlike injuries seen in the hospital setting. In addition, the battlefield or disaster scene adds a further level of complexity to medical care. Designed to fit in the pocket of a uniform and endure rigorous field conditions, this unique pocket guide provides state-of-the-art, evidence-based recommendations for providing nursing care under exceptional conditions.
