Are you medically trained? EXCELLENT!! However, most preppers are not fortunate enough to have a trained member in their family or group. Of course, having at least 1 trained member should be a group’s goal. So, if have some guides, information, or recommendations…November 16, 2017 at 6:14 pm #15758
We cannot be all knowing, even doctors have to consult or reference libraries. So, us preppers need to have some sort of resource to help us with things we know and need refreshing or what is most likely, what we do not know.
– The Survival Medicine Guide Handbook (Second Edition); Joseph Alton M.D. and Amy Alton A.R.N.P
– Pearson Nurse’s Drug Guide 2017 Edition; Wilson, Shannon, Shields
– Quick Study-Health by Bar Charts, Inc. These are laminated step-by-step guides.

The Patriot Nurse posted “Top 5 Diseases during SHTF” which has great background on preparation thereof.December 19, 2017 at 1:43 am #16127
With 45 years(military and civilian) medical field here are some conditions to be ready for:
Massive head wound (conscious and unconscious)
dozens of bodies being dropped around your treatment area in the dark with a 5 minute radio warning while you were sleeping .
Machete slash to legs, torso (same for axe wound)
GSW to hand, calf, stomach or abdominal area.(gunshot to head usually kills except mouth thru and thru)
GSW to butt,bullet creasing butt cheeks.
GSW leg,chunk of tissue gone.
Convoy truck wrecks. Helicopter shot down or crashes at night or day.
Platoon water supply bad need pedialyte or IV and anti nausea treatment and Imodium.
Kid is run over by vehicle.
Trooper takes drugs and is unconscious.
Doctor freaks outs and disappears(is found and sent by helicopter to wherever officers are treated)
this is a small part. Be ready to give aide, comfort and Hope .
Grenades probably will not be thrown around during SHTF. Same for artillery. Rumor that Isis and Mexican gangs coming across US- Mexican Border with automatic weapons is possible to the Southwest USA.
