The Ship Captain’s Medical Guide is intended primarily for use on ships where no doctor is carried and it is necessary for laymen 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.

Books and Resources | Hesperian Health Guides

Hesperian is the website of "where there is no doctor" and a number of other books normally targeted at the developing world, including setting up hygiene systems, toilets, water treatment etc. It's normally targeted at missionaries and others who have at least some concept of medicine. All of these are available in PDF.

The Ship Captain's Medical Guide is very good. However it often refers to treatment options from pharmaceuticals carried by registered ships, which includes prescription drugs, which most of us will not have access to in an emergency.

I have found "Where There Is No Doctor" and "Where There Is No Dentist" (from the Hesparian.org website) along with "The Barefoot Doctor" are better resources for most grid-down situations. Google around and you can find a copy to download.

FYI, for the Primary Surgery link I get a message that the site has been permanently deactivated and get redirected to dropbox.com, which is a site I detest.
