Reading Dr. Gould's excellent guide to handling medical emergencies and having it aboard as a ready reference can make any boater more confident in coping with a medical emergency afloat. Special sections on using the radio and dealing with a medical evacuation will be helpful to an inexperienced crew member faced with a disabled captain. This selection from the Cornell Boaters Library is designed for those who do not plan to go on blue-water cruises, but who need to know how to deal with medical emergencies on board. The book is clear, explicit, and spiced with anecdotes from the authors own adventures afloat.
