Developed in partnership with the National Ranger Ski Patrol Association, Alpine Medicine – A Guide to Austere Mountain Medicine, is designed to prepare first responders to handle any medical situation in the outdoor environment, during all seasons.

Become familiar with the patient assessment system as well as how to prevent, treat and manage many common and life-threatening situations in the field. Filled with the latest up-to-date content, treatment techniques and wilderness protocols. As you read through each chapter, you will find new information that is current with present pre-hospital patient care in a wilderness or austere alpine setting. 

The information found in this course textbook is uniquely designed for alpine ski and bicycle patrollers, and is presented in a format that combines the disciplines of urban EMS and wilderness medical rescue.

At the end of each chapter, review questions are provided to allow students to evaluate the knowledge they have gained while reading each chapter. Focusing on learning objectives listed at the beginning of each chapter helps to prepare students at the beginning of each topic what they are expected to learn as they move through the chapter.

Alpine Medicine – A Guide to Austere Mountain Medicine provides both basic and in-depth information on how to recognize, treat, and manage both common injuries and illnesses as well as life-threatening conditions when professional emergency medical care is an hour away or more.

Designed for those who work or travel in remote locations, this comprehensive guide will teach you what to look for, what to do in the event of an emergency, and then help direct you in the most appropriate type of care. This book is used as the course textbook for the new Alpine First Responder course of the National Ranger Ski Patrol Association, taught by Center for Wilderness Safety.
