I can't predict what's going to happen on Election Day 2016, but my search for answers led me to this: The Survival Medicine Handbook, a self-described "essential guide for when medical help is NOT on the way." Kind of a bleak outlook on the Constitutional process by which we're going to choose our next US President, but I might pick it up all the same. Even if I don't need to dress any wounds from election fallout unrest, I know I'll need information on how to administer medical care as an untrained citizen at Wal-Mart on Black Friday.

The Survival Medicine Handbook gives 670 pages of detailed advice on what you, the average dude with no medical background, can do during an incident of injury, illness, or all-out disaster. When there is no chance 911 is coming, and there is no access to hospitals or doctors. Joe Alton, MD and Amy Alton, ARNP have expanded this edition, their 3rd, of the Handbook to help anyone interested learn to deal with "catastrophic short or long-term scenarios." Over 150 topics are discussed, including:

  • Using All the Tools in the Woodshed
  • Modern Medicine Vs. Survival Medicine
  • How to Become an Effective Medic
  • 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
  • Appendicitis and Other Abdominal Infections & Conditions
  • Hepatitis
  • Hyperthermia & Hypothermia
  • Falling through the Ice
  • Hemorrhagic Wounds
  • Tracheotomy
