Medical Books & Large Publications

Post by rick1 on Wed Sep 05, 2018 10:08 am

There are a several books that every beginner should have:

1. The Survival Medicine Handbook, written by Dr. Joseph Alton and Amy Alton, A.R.N.P., this book covers just about everything.

2. If you store antibiotics/fish anti-biotics, you should have the Physicians' Desk Reference (PDR).

3. Darkest Days, How to Survive an EMP Attack to the Grid.

These books are inexpensive and will come in handy during a SHTF. If you say you can't afford them, I say you can't afford not to have them. They cover just about everything.

Operational Medicine 2001-Health Care in Military Settings
https://brooksidepress.org/Products/OperationalMedicine/DATA/operationalmed/default.htm

Operational or military medicine is based on the standard principles of medicine, as practiced in the best of the world's medical centers. But in many operational settings, those principles may be applied in ways different from traditional civilian settings.

While there are many reasons for this difference, three important ones are:

Isolation
Limited Resources
Operational circumstances may influence the provision of medical care.

This manual is designed to provide physicians, nurses, corpsmen and other health care providers with guidance on safe and effective medical care in such settings. ---CONTINUED---

http://www.fas.org/irp/doddir/milmed/ships.pdf

PDF Version 410 pages

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Public Health Service
Office of the Surgeon General
2003 Edition

D I S C L A I M E R
The practice of medicine is an art and a science, and is evolving daily as new
discoveries are made. Each individual medical provider is responsible for the
individual medical care provided to each patient. Each provider must assess the
patient and determine the specific clinical needs and most appropriate treatment
for that patient. This book is not meant to be a substitute for medical
practitioners or good clinical judgment, nor does it intend to determine the
standards of medical care in any given situation. ---CONTINUED---

The Physician's Desktop Reference book is a great resource if you have any prescription medications on hand. But unless you're prescribed the latest and greatest medications then you can save a LOT of money by getting a book that's a few years old. When I was looking for a copy a few years back, I found one that was 3 years old on Amazon for under $6 shipped!

305 Page PDF File to download from NATO. It's a VERY EXTENSIVE publication! Although there is ZERO chance that I'm going to be performing surgery, it's publications, like this one, that I like to have in my files, for sharing and using if a community-based medical center has to be set up and resources are limited/hard to find.

Emergency War Surgery
http://modernsurvivalonline.com/Files/medical/NATO-emergency-war-surgery.pdf

EMERGENCY WAR SURGERY
WORKING DRAFT
This is a handbook of war surgery.  Its lessons have been learned and then taught by combat surgeons—"young men who must have good hands, a stout heart and not too much philosophy; he is called upon for decision rather than discussion, for action rather than a knowledge of what the best writers think should be done."

(snip)

War surgery represents no crude departure from accepted surgical standards.  A major
responsibility of all military surgeons is to maintain these principles and practices as fully as
possible, even under adverse physical conditions.  The physical requirements are, however,
relatively simple:

1. Experienced surgeon, anesthetist, and operating room personnel.
2. Simple X-ray facilities.
3. Good lighting and water supplies.
4. Reasonable accommodations under shelter.
5. Well-trained nurses and other professional administrative staff.
6. Ability to retain postoperative patients in the hospital for at least a few days to
allow stabilization.
7. Simple surgical equipment, supplemented by a few items of specialized
equipment, such as Bovie units, defibrillators, ventilators, blood gas machines, anesthesia
delivery equipment, and vascular and orthopedic instruments.

There are, however, differences between war surgery and surgery in the civilian setting: ---CONTINUED---

  The Survival Doctor's Guide to Wounds: What to Do When There Is No Doctor (The Survival Doctor's Guides)
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008M2E4IM/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=sl1&tag=sociamed-20&linkId=5264dc23de61d8e970d4cbeae0d04dde

Dr. Hubbard becomes your digital medical assistant in this interactive guide to what to do when you're wounded and there's no doctor to be found.

When you get a bad injury, the usual advice is to call 911. But what if there is no 911? What if you're in another Hurricane Katrina, a terrorist attack or the aftermath of a tornado? The phone lines are down; the roads are blocked. You are the only help available.

Most people wouldn't survive a bad wound without expert help. But with the right knowledge, you and your family can--even with the most basic makeshift supplies.

No matter the size of the wound--whether it's a nick, deep cut, stab wound, or gash--Dr. Hubbard guides you step-by-step from stopping the bleeding to closing the wound to giving it the best chance to heal. He teaches the basics but then goes beyond the usual first-aid books and details in plain language techniques rarely taught to laypeople.

Bonus videos help you learn many of the do-it-yourself techniques visually as well, such as twisting hair a certain way to close up a head wound.

In "The Survival Doctor's Guide to Wounds," you'll learn:

*The easiest way to stop the bleeding in both minor and serious cuts.
*Signs a wound is life-threatening--even if it doesn't bleed much--and how to reduce the threat.
*How to treat a cut and prevent infection with honey and duct tape.
*Dangers to watch for in wounds that require special treatment, including stab wounds, animal bites, and cuts associated with broken bones.
*Which wounds should not be closed, and what to do instead.
*How to sterilize water and instruments with simple, everyday supplies.
*How to save a life even if the wound won't stop bleeding.
*And more ....

James Hubbard, M.D., M.P.H., has been a family doctor for over 30 years. He writes the popular survival-medicine blog The Survival Doctor and created My Family Doctor, a health-information site written by health-care professionals.

Dr. Hubbard is also the author of "The Survival Doctor's Guide to Burns."

  The Survival Doctor's Guide to Burns: What to Do When There Is No Doctor (The Survival Doctor's Guides Book 2)
https://www.amazon.com/Survival-Doctors-Guide-Burns-Doctor-ebook/dp/B008M2E4RS

Dr. Hubbard becomes your digital medical assistant in this interactive guide to what to do when you're burned and there's no doctor to be found.

When you get a bad burn, the usual advice is to call 911. But what if there is no 911? What if you're in the wilderness, in a terrorist attack, or dealing with the aftermath of a tornado, with blocked roads and demolished phone lines? With the right knowledge, you and your family can survive--even with the most basic makeshift supplies.

No matter the severity of the burn--whether it's a minor scorch or a life-threatening, third-degree disaster--Dr. Hubbard guides you step-by-step from soothing the burn to giving it the best chance to heal. He teaches the basics but then goes beyond the usual first-aid books and details in plain language techniques rarely taught to laypeople.

In "The Survival Doctor's Guide to Burns," you'll learn:

*The first, most important thing to do immediately to minimize any burn's impact.
*Early signs of killer complications so you can nip them in the bud.
*The only way to get skin to grow back on a serious burn--an advanced technique taught to medical experts almost exclusively.
*How to make your own burn dressings using honey and rags.
*Which plant soothes burns best and how to make it last by extracting the most gel from the leaves.
*And more ....

Here is a review of the 2 books, just posted, above:

https://commonsensehome.com/wounds-and-burns-e-books/

The Wounds and Burns e-books by Dr. James Hubbard, M.D., M.P.H, AKA “The Survival Doctor“, are a solid addition to any home preparedness library, with information the everyone should know.

No one wants to get injured, but sometimes bad things happen to good people. The worst wounds and burns are unfortunately likely to happen when you're least able to get prompt medical attention – like when you're caught in a natural or man-made disaster, or when you're on your own somewhere tackling a task that turns out to be a little too big. Those first few minutes after the injury happens can mean life of death, or the loss a a limb via infection. Be the person who knows the right thing to do. ---CONTINUED---

Looking for this book, I found several covers. This is the latest edition (other than an audio version) that I can find:

  Honey, Mud, Maggots, and Other Medical Marvels: The Science Behind Folk Remedies and Old Wives' Tales
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1273509.Honey_Mud_Maggots_And_Other_Medical_Marvels

Eating clay, drinking urine, applying honey to deep wounds and mere plaster to crushed bones: these are all folk remedies for ailments, passed on through the generations and thoroughly discounted by modern science. It is too bad, write scientist-historian couple Robert and Michèle Root-Bernstein, who deplore the loss of proven methods developed without the blessing of the academy, noting that "formal academic systems are only one of many ways in which knowledge is discovered, accumulated, and transmitted." Many scientists are now coming to agree with this view, they write in this fascinating collection of case studies. Researchers have showed that black tea, for instance, has powerful antibiotic properties and that maggots do an extraordinary job of cleaning wounds--as traditional healers have known all along.
