ABSTRACT

The purpose of this handy little book of pocket size is "to give the officers and men on shipboard a basic knowledge of what they could do for themselves and their fellow seamen where medical care was not available." It does more than this in that there is included much general information, compactly presented. General sanitation, sanitary measures and disinfection are briefly but well covered, and simple means are described to combat existing conditions to be found on board ship. Many blank forms are presented, with careful complete instructions as to their preparation and disposition. A brief but clear description of elementary anatomy is given, easily understood by the layman.

Under the heading Medicine Chest there is a rather full compendium of medicinal substances with instructions for their use, more or less generally including the cause of the disease or condition and the effect of the remedy. Contagious and communicable
