"This book can be recommended for the scope of presentations ranging from bedside procedures to organization for mass casualty situations. It is well written, and the reference lists and index are quite helpful. As noted, there may be
some regional variation in prehospital practice. Nonetheless, this is an excellent overview of the pertinent issues."

David J. Dries, MD(University of Minnesota Medical School).
