Pagination or Media Count:
This manual is intended as a quick reference guide for allied health workers and selected, trained laymen charged with the responsibility of administering shelter medical care in the absence of a physician. Its purpose is to aid them to quickly determine the treatment, under the austere limitations of the shelter, based on common symptoms. Recommended treatment is primarily for symptoms rather than the uncertainties of inexperienced diagnosis.
