        So as to not hijack a thread, I’ve started a new one.

        Diomedes mentioned the above book Where There is No Doctor in his post. The book can be found here. http://hesperian.org/books-and-resources/

        At the same site, are other good reference books.

          “When there is no dentist” is another good one. It’s a start… I’m a doc and I own both.

            There is a place for all of the Hesperian Health Guides in a prepared persons library.

            The Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook, 2d edition is an excellent resource both in electronic ($9.99) and Looseleaf with Binder.

            The hardcopy is printed on tear-resistant, water-resistant, synthetic paper. A 5.25 inch by 8.5 inch quick-reference guide with a three hole punched ring binding for $59.00 from the U.S. Government Publishing Office .

            Beware of the very early versions (pre 2000) as they truly outdated.

                I also keep a copy around of Ditch Medicine, it’s a good reference. It’s actually the only one that I have in my med bag right now. I need to get another copy of SF Med handbook and Where there is no doc.
