The Survival Medicine Handbook Second Edition Is Out!

NewBookCovSmaller

Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy are happy to announce the publication of the Second Edition of The Survival Medicine Handbook! “The Survival Medicine Handbook: When Medical Help is NOT on the Way” is the second edition of the Amazon bestseller “The Doom and Bloom Survival Medicine Handbook”.

Our second edition, like the first, assumes that no doctors or hospitals are available to you due to a short-term or long-term disaster scenario, and that YOU are now the end of the line when it comes to your family’s health.

The Survival Medicine Handbook is a guide for those who want to be medically prepared for any disaster where help is NOT on the way. The expanded and revised second edition of the 3 category Amazon bestseller (Survival Skills, Disaster Relief, Safety/First Aid) is geared to enable the non-medical professional to deal with all the likely issues they will encounter in catastrophic scenarios.

In circumstances where medical personnel are overwhelmed and access to modern technology is limited or non-existent, The Survival Medicine Handbook is the essential reference book for every library. Written in plain English, you’ll find step-by-step instructions on how to identify and treat over 100 different medical issues.

The second edition also covers alternative remedies for almost every possible medical condition in situations where modern healthcare is inaccessible. Why not use ALL the tools in the woodshed?

    Man it sure would be nice to be able to have this book in .pdf format so that it could be loaded onto a cell phone. Much easier to carry when bugging out.
    Thx,
    Jim

    Hi Grace,

    Malaria is in the section on mosquito-born illnesses. Not much about infants, though, but here’s the World Health Organization’s recommendations:
