Medical Books On Board

In times of trouble on board, it is helpful to have a doctor.  She may not always be there though.  While going through our medical supplies, I found three books that could prove useful. These are all not really medical books, but helpful aids written for the layman:

 Being Your Own Wilderness Doctor

The Healthy Cruiser's Handbook

Wilderness Medicine, Beyond First Aid, 5th Edition

Each of these books covers their own subset of first aid, symptoms and drug use.  You could probably get away with just one of these volumes, but it is sometimes reassuring to have a second opinion.
