Product Description

Instant Advice on Dealing with Medical Emergencies at Sea

by Sandra Roberts

An essential guide for all who go afloat. At sea you cannot ring for an ambulance and just wait for help: you need to act immediately as you may go hours, or even days, away from assistance. First Aid Afloat could save someone’s life, and no boat should be without it.

Aimed at the novice first-aider, this book is intended to be used at the time of the accident or illness. Each topic is designed to be read at a glance: the language is kept short and simple and, where appropriate, photo sequences show exactly what to do. Straight forward advice allows you to take control of the situation, stabilise the casualty and provide the appropriate treatment at sea.

Topics covered include bleeding; burns; fractures; hypothermia; resuscitation; bites, stings and poisoning; evacuation of a casualty; radio medical advice; and more.
