The Skipper's Medical Emergency Handbook is designed to assist all who go to sea - whether on a day excursion, a holiday cruise or an even longer trip. It will provide practical advice, boost confidence, solve problems and minimise danger for all on board.

Step-by-step instructions, explanatory illustrations and flow charts provide an at-a-glance reference on how to prevent, treat and care for the sick and injured at sea. And there is advice on pre-voyage preparations, establishing emergency procedures, first response and assessment of illnesses and injury, right through to offshore aftercare and recovery. The Skipper's Medical Emergency Handbook is a comprehensive and practical resource for novices or experienced sailors and motorboaters.

Reviews for Skipper's Medical Emergency Handbook

If you only take one medical handbook on board, make it this one. It has been carefully thought through and is presented logically in an at-a-glance format that would be quick and easy to use in a crisis, with plenty of diagrams and flow charts to help. * Yachting World *
