This chapter is not intended to replace a good first aid manual, and so specific treatment protocols have not been included. Leaders of bushwalking and skiing trips should avail themselves of as much knowledge as possible of current best practice in assessment and treatment of illnesses and injuries which may be encountered on trips into areas remote from medical assistance.
