The Starfleet Survival Guide was a reference publication issued to members of Starfleet, consisting of information for surviving a variety of life-threatening scenarios.
The Starfleet Survival Guide included instruction on how to cauterize and suture a severe wound using a standard-issue phaser. Commander Rondon used this technique on Crewman Fabian Stevens when he was wounded in a Breen attack on Lamenda Prime in 2375. (ST - Tales of the Dominion War short story: "Field Expediency")
