Written by military nurses, the Battlefield and Disaster Nursing Pocket Guide is the premier quick reference guide for battlefield nurses on the front lines. This pocket guide contains critical assessment and treatment information, as well as translation guides to ensure accurate communication in the field.

The care of patients with injuries received on the battlefield or in a disaster is specialized. Traumatic injuries may be more complex or unlike injuries seen in the hospital setting. In addition, the battlefield or disaster scene adds an additional level of complexity to medical care. Designed to fit in the pocket of a uniform, this unique pocket guide provides state-of-the-art, evidence-based recommendations for providing nursing care under exceptional conditions.

The field guide was designed to fit in the pocket of a field uniform and to stand up to rigorous field conditions.
