Description

If you had to deal with an injury or illness in a disaster, would you know what to do? The Survival Medicine Handbook is a 670 page detailed guide for those who want to be medically prepared for any disaster where help is NOT on the way. This book is written by Joe Alton, M.D. and Amy Alton, A.R.N.P., the premiere medical preparedness professionals from the top ten survival website www.doomandbloom.net. The expanded third edition of the 3 category Amazon bestseller (Survival Skills, Disaster Relief, Safety/First Aid) is geared to enable the non-medical professional to deal with all the likely issues they will encounter in catastrophic short or long-term scenarios. The third (2016) edition of The Survival Medicine Handbook is not your standard first aid book: Unlike other so-called “survival” medical books, it assumes that a disaster, natural or man-made, has removed all access to hospitals or doctors for the foreseeable future; you, the average person, are now the highest medical resource left to your family. The Survival Medicine Handbook will give you the tools, in plain English, to competently handle injuries and illness for any situation that leaves you as the end of the line with regards to your family''s medical well-being. Here are just some of the over 150 topics (175 illustrations) covered: PRINCIPLES OF MEDICAL PREPAREDNESS-HISTORY OF PREPAREDNESS-USING ALL THE TOOLS IN THE WOODSHED-SPIRITUALITY AND SURVIVAL-MODERN MEDICINE VS. SURVIVAL MEDICINE-THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNITY-HOW TO BECOME AN EFFECTIVE MEDIC-LIKELY MEDICAL ISSUES YOU’LL FACE-MEDICAL SKILLS YOU’LL WANT TO LEARN-MEDICAL BAGS, KITS, AND SUPPLIES-HOW TO STERILIZE MEDICAL SUPPLIES-NATURAL REMEDIES, LIKE OILS, TEAS, TINCTURES, AND SALVES-THE MEDICAL HISTORY AND PHYSICAL EXAM-THE MASS CASUALTY INCIDENT-THE ACTIVE SHOOTER EVENT-PATIENT TRANSPORT-HYGIENE-RELATED MEDICAL ISSUES-LICE, TICKS, AND WORMS-DENTAL ISSUES AND PROCEDURES-RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS-GUIDE TO PROTECTIVE MASKS-FOOD AND WATER-BORNE ILLNESS-WATER STERILIZATION-DIARRHEAL DISEASE AND DEHYDRATION-DEALING WITH SEWAGE ISSUES-RODENTS AS DISEASE VECTORS-FOOD POISONING-PATHOGENS (DISEASE-CAUSING ORGANISMS)-HOW INFECTIONS SPREAD-APPENDICITIS AND OTHER ABDOMINAL INFECTIONS AND CONDITIONS-HEPATITIS-URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS-INFECTIONS CAUSED BY YEAST-CELLULITIS-ABSCESSES-TETANUS-MOSQUITO-BORNE ILLNESSES-PANDEMICS-THE SURVIVAL SICK ROOM -HYPERTHERMIA (HEAT STROKE)-HYPOTHERMIA-FROSTBITE/IMMERSION (TRENCH) FOOT-COLD WATER SAFETY-FALLING THROUGH THE ICE-AVALANCHE PREPAREDNESS-ALTITUDE SICKNESS-WILDFIRE PREPAREDNESS-SMOKE INHALATION-TORNADO PREPAREDNESS-HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS-EARTHQUAKE PREPAREDNESS-FLOOD PREPAREDNESS-MARITIME SURVIVAL-NEAR-DROWNING-VOLCANO PREPAREDNESS-ALLERGIC REACTIONS-ASTHMA-ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK-POISON IVY, OAK, AND SUMAC-RADIATION SICKNESS-BIOLOGICAL WARFARE-INJURIES TO SOFT TISSUES- MINOR WOUNDS-HEMORRHAGIC WOUNDS-PHYSICAL EFFECTS OF BLOOD LOSS-HEMORRHAGE CONTROL-TOURNIQUETS-COMMERCIAL BLOOD-CLOTTING AGENTS-KNIFE AND BULLET WOUNDS-BODY ARMOR-THE MEDIC UNDER FIRE-SOFT TISSUE CHRONIC WOUND CARE-HOW TO SUTURE SKIN-HOW TO STAPLE SKIN-LOCAL NERVE BLOCKS-BLISTERS, SPLINTERS, AND FISHHOOKS-NAIL BED INJURIES-BURN INJURIES-ANIMAL BITES-SNAKE BITES-INSECT BITES AND STINGS-HEAD INJURIES-SPRAINS AND STRAINS-DISLOCATIONS-FRACTURES-PNEUMOTHORAX-AMPUTATION-THYROID DISEASE-DIABETES-HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE-HEART DISEASE-ULCER AND ACID REFLUX DISEASE-SEIZURE DISORDERS-JOINT DISEASE-KIDNEY AND GALL BLADDER STONES-SKIN RASHES-VARICOSE VEINS-HEMORRHOIDS-AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION-TRACHEOTOMY-CPR IN THE UNCONSCIOUS PATIENT-HEADACHE-EYE TRAUMA AND INFECTIONS-NASAL TRAUMA-EAR INFECTIONS-PREGNANCY AND DELIVERY-ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION-SLEEP DEPRIVATION-OVER THE COUNTER DRUGS-PAIN RELIEF-ANTIBIOTICS- EXPIRATION DATES When medical personnel are overwhelmed and modern technology is non-existent, The Survival Medicine Handbook is THE essential book for your library.

UPDATE: After using this book as a reference for several issues just to see if what it states holds up I have to remove 2 stars. Not for a lack of information because it definitely has lots of useful information. My reason for removing a star is because after some actual real life use of the information found on these pages I don''t believe that this is an all inclusive book for survival medicine. It has way too many topics that it will point you in the right direction but it doesn''t follow through with that information. It is definitely missing some vital bits of information on specific topics. Take the sections on herbal remedies and using essential oils. Sure it will tell me what to use and where to use it but it''s missing the how or how much. Don''t tell me to mix an essential oil with a carrier oil and forget to tell me how much essential oil to mix with how much carrier oil. Don''t tell me to use clove oil for a toothache but fail to tell me how to make a usable mix or application. This book even tells me that I can make a temporary filling for teeth but fails to tell me exactly how to make the filling. This book just has way too many points of telling me that I can do or make something and fails at telling me how to get to that final point.

This is the book that everyone should own. I personally don''t believe that this is just for survival situations and preppers. This book could be all that you need to save a life while waiting for emergency personal to show up. I highly recommend this book for anyone who doesn''t want to feel helpless in an emergency situation.

I love the concept, but it is not well executed. This is a prime example of someone who has expert knowledge in an area, but a poor understanding of how to present that knowledge in a meaningful way to others. For example, there is a chapter on “the history and physical” that provides information about taking vital signs and performing a systems review. It does not inform the reader how the results of the history/physical impact the “medic’s” plan. For instance, it doesn’t discuss what can or should be done if blood pressure is too high or extremity weakness is found. Additionally, I do not appreciate the “fillers”: chapters on how to survive shark infested waters, mudslides, hurricanes, etc. I did not purchase this book for that type of survival advice. I would have preferred the authors stuck to their survival expertise: medicine. Other fillers include descriptions of diagnoses that will not benefit someone in a survival situation: explanations of types of kidney stones, types of seizures, cholesterol issues, thyroid disease, etc. Let’s be realistic: in the event that no medical professional is available to provide care for a long period of time, we will not be diagnosing thyroid or cholesterol issues. It isn’t a terrible book. I suppose it is a good starting point. It simply did not reach its potential.

VERY COMPREHENSIVE AND THOROUGH.
I don''t have their previous editions, but from what I can gather, the authors have significantly expanded their scope in this 3rd edition. It won''t make you a doctor, but it will equip you with the vital medical skills needed when there is little or no chance of finding a doctor. The book is written by a medical doctor and an advanced nurse practitioner. It is in layman''s terms; all skills and procedures are explained in a simple, straightforward way. Topics include Preparedness; Cleanliness; Triage; Assessment; all manner of Infections; Natural Disasters; Maritime Survival; Biological Warfare & Radiation Sickness; Injuries; Bites; Chronic Medical Conditions such as management of Diabetes, Epilepsy, Heart Disease; CPR; Pregnancy; Anxiety & Depression; Dental Issues; Medication.
The only downside I can find is the size and weight of the book (H229mm × W153mm × 39mm spine, mass = 1040g). (Approximately H 9" × W 6" × 1.5" spine, mass = 2.29lb). It''s not the kind of weight you would like in your bug-out-bag, but all things considered, I would be comforted to know I had this resource close at hand. Maybe the publishers can use finer paper next time? At 671 pages (including photos and diagrams), this is a valuable, yet weighty reference book. Keep one on your bookshelf!!

This book is a good addition to a family medical library. It''s based upon the assumption that certain catastrophes (e.g. natural disasters, nuclear war) may leave you and your family isolated from the medical community for a long time. Hence, the book is packed with medical information needed to treat others in an environment where pharmacies are unavailable and trained medical personnel are otherwise occupied or dead. One thing this book isn''t: a guide to amateur surgery. There are some things that cannot be done without years of specialized medical training, no matter how desperate the circumstances. Another thing this book isn''t: A stand alone compendium of medical knowledge. If your intent is to build a good prepper''s medical library, you''ll want to supplement it with a Merck Manual (there''s one written in plain English), as well as texts dealing specifically with anatomy, drugs (prescription and OTC), and a text geared to symptom identification. Please be advised this book will be of comparatively little value if you don''t read it and follow its stockpiling recommendations for supplies, equipment, and medications.

I trained medics in the Army, so I may have a broader base than most. Yet, this will not only provide you with a great list of items to have on hand should SHTF, but also give you instruction for treating most of the injuries and illnesses you may encounter.

The Survival Medicine hand book, 3rd edition Joseph Alton and Amy Alton ISBN 978 098887 2554 Now this is another book that causes issues to us other here in the UK, as the book is written by an American for an American market. Which for the UK or Europe market normally misses the mark massively? When you see “made in mericia” this side of the pond we expect the first line in the book on first aid is. “Walk up to patient with your shotgun in hand”. Or “Using your Glock to make suture holes to sew the patient up, we recommend 5.56 for this role!” The whole imperial thing we also find hilarious as well, take a 10cc syringe and inject 3 oz of blah blah, lol. So now we know Pete is not a great fan of American books you will be surprised to know he paid £20 for this one and had Amazon ship it to Blighty. Such is the faith I have in these two writers after watching many of their you tube videos. When you get this book in your hands for the first time you are suddenly struck with the fact this is not the normal American waffle manuals we see so often. These people use their words wisely and with purpose. As people that really have thought on every word, had the book edited professionally and had a large about of reworking done so we have a book I want to read. The next massive surprise in this work is the list of topics covered. Many only cover deep wounds and bullet holes but we have here bones, sprains and child birth (not in the same chapter. Both writers clearly make a case for this book at the beginning which is well aimed. A book for when help is not coming, not as uncommon as you would think either. You are not going to read chapter four and know how to do a gall stone operation but you do have the information to deal with that situation or before its required, learn where to get further information and ideas from. Practically speaking the book is well written, well presented. Has a clear font and text and is an easy on the eye read. There is few pictures or drawings but that’s ok as it’s an informational book not a do it your self guide. This is the book where beginners like me need to start our medical home training. So to summarise, yes its American but I don’t hold that against them. Its well written and clear and a great reference guide. In Europe on Amazon its roughly around £20 and well worth it at that cost, I would say its easily still worth while at £25, if you can find a 2nd edition for less then get that too its still worth it.
