Publisher's Synopsis

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. This essential book provides practical advice, boosts confidence and helps you to solve problems and minimise danger for all on board. Written by two medical experts and hugely experienced sailors, this third edition has been thoroughly updated throughout in line with new practices, procedures and treatments, reflecting the ever-evolving practice of medicine in the 21st century. It includes the latest developments in the treatment of medical conditions, and also the latest improvements in the emergency treatment of trauma. Step-by-step instructions, explanatory illustrations and flow charts create an essential at-a-glance reference on how to prevent, treat and care for the sick and injured at sea. There is clear advice on pre-voyage preparations, establishing emergency procedures, first response and assessment of illnesses and injury, as well as offshore aftercare and recovery. The book's durable waterproof binding protects against the marine environment making it ideal to use at sea. The Skipper's Medical Emergency Handbook is a comprehensive and practical resource for novices or experienced sailors and motorboaters.
