In survival scenarios, you can bet that there will be lots of injuries that break the skin, your body’s natural barrier. Joe and Amy Alton, aka Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy, discuss various considerations with regards to wound closure in austere settings, including infection, bleeding, delayed closure, and some different would closure techniques.

Also, Amy Alton ARNP talks about her recent video on the newly approved tourniquet by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care, the SAM XT tourniquet, and her opinions regarding its usefulness for the average person.

Another concern our hosts have involves the constant battle between natural healers and conventional healthcare providers. Dr. Alton explains why it makes no sense to be dogmatic about what medical therapies work best in times of trouble. Joe and Amy suggest the active use of all the tools in the medical woodshed!
