I am excited to announce the 2021 update to the Wilderness First Aid book that makes Wilderness First Aid easier to learn and remember. I read and researched Wilderness First Aid (WFA) textbooks from the major wilderness medical schools and reduced thousands of pages of text into intuitive, easy-to-use flow diagrams that will improve your understanding and increases your knowledge retention. Unlike textbooks that explain WFA using just words, Wilderness First Aid Made Easy graphically illustrates the entire patient care process.
The 2021 Edition of Wilderness First Aid Made Easy goes another step further by enabling you to view over 50 presentations and demonstrations from the School of First Aid’s Wilderness First Aid course. To view the presentations, enable the QR Code reader on your smart device and point your smart device’s camera at the QR Code found on pages throughout this book. You will be directed to video demonstrations, classroom lectures and downloadable handouts. Each page is explained, step-by-step in using concise, to the point video presentations. Video demonstrations throughout the book will deepen your knowledge by illustrating the application of WFA concepts.
This book and the bonus content appeals to a wide range of people who desire to be prepared during medical emergencies when EMS is more than a few minutes away.
