Health guide: recommended books?
we're leaving for an African overland trip in a couple of months and would like to take some health guide with us. Can anyone recommend a good book for people who are not really medical trained?
A really really good thing have with you is:
Wilderness Medical Associates Field Guide
it is a great pocket guide with step by step problem finding & solving procedure's.
The Outward Bound Wilderness First Handbook.
by Jeffrey Isaac
The Lyons Press, New York.
They are not really in depth books. But they will help you to judge how serious a problem is and what you can do. Even without having followed training.
But off course... the best thing to do is to go follow a training. Several organisations do this specifically focused on back country situations.
a good read is bugs bites and bowels
