I was recently gifted a copy of The Prepper Pages – Survival Medicine – A Surgeon’s Guide to Scavenging The Necessary Items for a Medical Kit, and Putting Them to Use While Bugging Out.. From Dr. Ryan Chamberlin recently.
Once my copy arrived I sat down and began reading. The book was so interesting I read it in one sitting. It really explains alot of common emergencies that will be widespread when SHTF or TEOTWAWKI hits the planet.
How to treat certain medical emergencies in the field when doctors and hospitals are no longer available or in short supply. How to use antibiotics, suture and treat wounds from everything such as gun shot wounds, abdominal wounds to insect and animal bites. Plus Ryan gives a entertaining walkthrough of how and where to find critical items that will be needed after an emergency or collapse. And what items to begin prepping beforehand. He puts to rest a lot of medical myths that I have heard all my life.
The book it easy to understand and written in laymans terms for the non medical minded individuals, such as how to determine suture, syringe, needle and butterfly catheter sizes. The books information is really simple to comprehend.
It is the first installment in a series of three guides. Survival Medicine, Treating Life-Threatening Conditions and Treating Ebola & Similar Fatal Infections at Home.. Well worth adding to your med kit or Bug out Bag and will definitely become a permanent part of my kit. Thanks Ryan!
