    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:
