Survival Medicine Hour: Patient Transport, Vitals, Tree Mold, More

Share Button

How do you transport an injured person when the ambulance is heading in the other direction? Joe Alton, MD, and Amy Alton, ARNP, explore some of your options when a victim has to be transported and you have to improvise a stretcher (some illustrations to follow with are below). Also, Christmas trees cause increasing mold counts in homes that are leading to some severe allergies, plus a Christmas Eve asteroid fly-by, and some discussion on vital signs in austere settings. All this and more on the latest Survival Medicine Hour. Listen in by clicking below:

Wishing you the best of health in good times or bad,

Joe and Amy Alton
