    Two first aid manuals are widely accepted as appropriate for use by cruisers. What is your age and general health status? What kind of environment are you preparing for? Don't get me wrong, there are tons of books out there that teaches and instructs on first aid however, without me giving you a list of all these books since I haven't read them all I can certainly point you towards the books that would be most helpful.

    There are many other books of excellent quality I could mention, but time and space precludes mentioning all of them. Eastman, a retired surgeon, writes in a folksy anecdotal manner and tells good sea stories. Designed for scuba divers and others who explore the underwater environment and who may be stung, bitten or punctured by a marine creature. Virtually every accident or ailment that might occur when professional medical care is unavailable is squarely faced and dealt with, using laymans language and step-by-step instructions that calmly take the reader from diagnosis through treatment to follow-up care.

    This is the standard text, used by the U. See our disclaimer Since its first publication inmore than 30, blue-water sailors have looked to this book when injury or illness struck at sea. Create a list of all contents and dates of expiration to make it easier to keep track of replacement needs. Are you more comfortable with 'alternative' medical practices than standard drugs and surgery? Medical knowledge.
