'Ship Captain's Medical Guide' is intended primarily for use on ships where no doctor is carried and it is necessary to assess and treat injuries and to diagnose and treat ill health. The guide can also be recommended for use in other situations where professional medical advice is not readily available, for example on expeditions.

For the 23rd edition the guide has been comprehensively rewritten reflecting modern best practices.

It contains:

- Flow charts to aid evaluation and treatment
- Clear, authoritative advice and easy-to-follow guidance
- Step-by-step illustrations to explain emergency procedures
- Quick-reference lists regarding history and examination
- Cross references to further detail
- Anatomical illustrations

Orders placed with us will be dispatched within one to two working days. Dispatch is dependant upon the time when the order is received and provided that all goods ordered are immediately available. If any items are temporarily out of stock, we will endeavour to dispatch the complete order within 7 working days. We only ship complete orders and do not, as a general rule, ship part orders.
