How to survive medical emergencies when professional medical care isn’t available—infections, illnesses, fractures, snake bites, and more. From Dr. Joe Alton and Amy Alton ARNP comes an updated edition of their bestseller The Survival Medicine Handbook. This unique medical book is meant to enable the average person to handle injuries and illness in situations in which modern medical facilities and professionals aren’t available due to a disaster. This book is written by America’s top medical preparedness experts: Joe Alton, MD, and Amy Alton, ARNP. Their mission: to put a medically prepared person in every family for when medical help is not on the way. Using decades of medical experience, they address, in plain language, dozens of medical issues associated with surviving disasters and epidemics. The Altons also discuss the medical supplies needed to become a medical asset to your family and community as well as alternative and natural strategies for when pharmaceuticals aren’t available. Topics include: Appendicitis and Conditions that Mimic It Urinary Tract Infections Mosquito-Borne Illnesses Allergic Reactions and Anaphylaxis Head Injuries Animal Bites Snake Bites Head injuries Kidney Stones Dislocations and Fractures Nosebleeds Pain Medications and Natural Pain Relief And much much more! Most medical books will send you to the doctor or hospital when an emergency happens. The Altons assume that the worst might actually happen—that the average person could be left without medical help in a disaster. With their book, you can keep your family healthy in times of trouble.

The basis of adequate prepping is being prepared for both common and dire events that may occur under the worst of all possible circumstances. These circumstances might include the breakdown in normal emergency support services (such as calling 911), the lack of an ability to obtain additional supplies, and the probability that you will not be able to rely on anyone but members of your immediate group or yourself. Prepping requires forethought with regard to food, water supplies, power, and protection – all areas of significant technical preparation. Self-reliant medical care is no exception. This book provides the basis of prevention, identification, and long-term management of survivable medical conditions and can be performed with minimal training. It helps you identify sources of materials you will need and should stock-pile, it discusses storage issues, and directs you to sources for more complex procedures that require advanced concepts of field-expedient techniques used by trained medical persons such as surgeons, anesthesiologists, dentists, or midwifes and obstetricians.

Most look at survival medicine as stocking up on some helpful over-the-counter medicines and coverings for wounds for their survival kit. However, survival medicine entails much more. To be adequately prepared, you must know what to do once your supplies run out. Survival medicine teaches you about common ailments, good over-the-counter medications to stock up on, and how to use your surroundings to make medicine in an emergency, by relying on herbs, berries, and other plants.
