Survival Medicine Hour #341


In this episode of the Survival Medicine Hour with Joe Alton, MD and Amy Alton, ARNP, aka Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy, the topic is shock: What types there are, the stages of shock, the signs and symptoms of shock, and a lot more that you might need to know in times of trouble. Also Dr.Bones discusses some examples of victims you might encounter in a mass casualty incident, plus the 30-2-Can Do paradigm for telling priority of need for immediate care.

People in shock lose heat quickly; make sure to keep them warm!

Also, Nurse Amy spends some time talking about what plants in your garden can give you some relief from disease-transmitting mosquitoes this summer.

All this and more from our show, remotely broadcast this week from Boston, Massachusetts while on the way to the Mother Earth News Fair event in Burlington, Vermont!
