First Aid Afloat

Instant Advice on Dealing with Medical Emergencies at Sea



First Aid Afloat

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, First Aid Afloat is intended to be used at the time of the event. 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.

There is a chapter for each type of medical emergency, colour coded for ease of use.  In an already stressful situation, this book makes it easy to locate the pages you need.  This in turn, enables you to carry out swift and appropriate care for the casualty.  Topics covered include bleeding; burns; fractures; hypothermia; resuscitation; bites, stings and poisoning; evacuation of a casualty; radio medical advice; and more.
