Synopsis

The great outdoors provides us with a playground, and for some, a place of work. Whether you are a walker, paraglider, orienteer, climber, horse rider, mountain biker or fell runner, all outdoor activities carry inherent risks and dangers. In an urban setting we rely on ambulance crews, paramedics, doctors and nurses to provide assistance and medical care when things go wrong. This means the average person can get away with knowing surprisingly little first aid, but remain fairly safe on a day to day basis. However, once you are in an outdoor location away from immediate help and assistance you need a different approach. Evacuation will be necessary, either self-evacuation or through the emergency services. You will need to be able to administer first aid in awkward, even dangerous places. Limited resources mean that you have to be able adapt and improvise. This book is geared specifically towards first aid in the UK outdoor sports scene.
