Developed as a primary medical training resource and field guide for the Special Operations Command, the Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook defines the standard of health care delivery under adverse and general field conditions. It emphasizes acute care in all its forms (blunt and penetrating trauma, poisonings, infestations, parasitisms, acute infections, hyper and hypothermia, high altitude and decompression sickness and much more) as well as general medicine and sanitation practiced under primitive conditions. It is the work of 80 contributors both from the military and civilian practice. In general topics are covered in a consistent two page format. It is heavily illustrated with color for quick identification of dermatologic conditions, insect bites and stings and exposure problems.
Note: This is not the original SPEC OPS medical handbook which has been out for years but a newer more accurate and huge one at 600+ pages.
