This book has emergency treatments for various conditions arranged neatly in alphabetical order, with a good index so that any condition can be looked up very quickly. Both first aid and further extended treatments are given. Most ordinary conditions are dealt with adequately, but tropical conditions are scarcely mentioned and falciparum malaria is not touched on as a cause for coma. Examination of the blood for parasites and enquiry into travel from abroad are not mentioned in such cases.

Snake bite is over-treated and no mention is made of testing the coagulability of the blood in such cases, as the dangers of antivenene administration may be as great as that of the snake bite which may easily be harmless.

However, this is a very useful book to have around and fits the pocket easily.
