    Bought as a birthday present for my dad He said its covers a lot however in some scenarios it doesnt go much into dept but gives you the general overview Definitely worth a read or to look back on in times of need

    This one is FULL og great info I live in Canada so I didn t have access to the full length guide by Joseph Alton, but this is still packed with essential information Would definitely buy again and recommend again for family members or friends interested in prepping.

    Lots of good infoBUTthere are a lot of medical procedures that are mentioned but the author does a bad job at explaining how to treat them For example, he describes how to treat a tension pneumothorax in one paragraph and with no images at all to tell how to perforate the chest with a 14 gauge needle Either explain in detail these potentially fatal techniques or don t explain them at all and focus on basic first aid.Another example is his explanation at performing traction very brief and does not explain the dangers of improperly performing traction on a femur He then describes a limb amputation in a few easy steps lol.

  12. Brian Brian says:

    Most is common sense and basic first aid Not what I consider ultimate and not a medical Bible Go to feds and get medical surgury book, its this book on roids.

    I certainly haven t read this book cover to cover, but I keep it around and read page or two when the mood strikes me That s how long a typical explanation for something takes The few things I ve read have been very clear and understandable, and reflect in depth knowledge by the author s I contracted tick borne Lyme Disease a couple years ago and was in ICU for two weeks, yet I learned about the transmission of that disease from a page or two in this book than I knew from all my prior reading and talking with doctors The book covers a remarkably broad spectrum of health issues that are both every day life ie tooth problems and outdoor survival related ie toxic plants You can jump right into any one that interests you without reading a lot of stuff that doesn t It s also pretty well illustrated where an illustration is helpful to understand the explanation Not going to win any awards for artistic quality, but definitely helpful Reminiscent of my very old Boy Scout handbook which I still keep around I actually can t imagine a better book that isn t something huge and expensive like the Mayo Clinic Health book This thing is compact and densely packed with good information.

    This is a really good book from a doctor who understands that the grid may go down for a long time, not just for a few days or even weeks Most medical survival books are oriented to stabilizing a person long enough to get them to the hospital But what happens in a SHTF scenario that may be prolonged This MD does a great job outlining steps you can take to prepare now, while society functions, and also providing insights on what people can do to make the best of a difficult situation when professional medical care, and medicine, is not available, and won t be for the foreseeable future After reading this, I am going to have to order his comprehensive book as well.

    Best book so far out of 4 I ve purchased for SHTF medicine I still wanted how to but I guess that would put it at around 800 pages Overall, a very good primer on what you may need with materials list and what to expect.
