    American Survival Hour #340

    In this episode of the Survival Medicine Hour, Joe and Amy Alton discuss small injuries like those to the nail bed, and large, massive injuries like those seen in mass casualty events. What do you do if you’re the first on the scene of a bombing or other multi-injury event? These days, as the recent events in England have taught us, a mass casualty incident (MCI) can occur anytime and anyplace there’s a crowd.

    Plus, Joe and Amy talk about  the factors to consider before deciding to close a wound. Wounds should only be closed in certain circumstances in off-grid settings. Find out how to use the best judgment in this week’s Survival Medicine Hour with Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy!
