The Prepper’s Medical Handbook ePUB
The basis of adequate prepping is being prepared for both common and dire events that may occur under the worst of all possible circumstances.
These circumstances might include the breakdown in normal emergency support services (such as calling 911), the lack of an ability to obtain additional supplies, and the probability that you will not be able to rely on anyone but members of your immediate group or yourself.
Prepping requires forethought with regard to food, water supplies, power, and protection – all areas of significant technical preparation. Self-reliant medical care is no exception.
This book provides the basis of prevention, identification, and long-term management of survivable medical conditions and can be performed with minimal training. It helps you identify sources of materials you will need and should stock-pile, it discusses storage issues, and directs you to sources for more complex procedures that require advanced concepts of field-expedient techniques used by trained medical persons such as surgeons, anesthesiologists, dentists, or midwifes and obstetricians.
- First, you don’t need to be a Prepper to find value in this book. The information is extremely well organized, informative and easy to (quickly) interpret and understand. I’ve found books like this are either a bit out of reach for the layperson, poorly organized or tell you how to identify / diagnose but fail to provide accurate treatment and or prevention.
Dr. Forgey’s book offers several ways to quickly find the information you need with illustrations that can be interpreted at a glance. The medical kit he’s constructed is modular (bandaging / surgical, non-rx and Rx medications etc.), very thorough and provides quantities covering a 2-week, 1 year or 5 year time frames.
Highly recommend whether you’re a prepper or (considering the recent pandemic) a proactive parent trying to keep the family out of harms way.
- For decades I outfitted and guided canoe trips in northern Canada for the Science Museum of Minnesota. Many of our trips were above the Arctic Circle where help was an airplane ride away. On those trips I relied on Dr. Forgey’s classic text, WILDERNESS MEDICINE. This new book, :The Prepper’s Medical Handbook” is much more thorough. Equally important is that Dr. Forgey has spent considerable time in the bush. Where other medical authors will scream “evacuation” when things get dicey, Dr. Forgey knows that there are many scenarios where this isn’t practical. So he provides realistic alternatives–things you can do right now to save the day. The book covers all the important things plus a wealth of things I, as a non medical person, have never heard of. Forgey writes in an easy, friendly way that I can understand. If you’re going in harm’s way, get this book!
