Survival Medicine Podcast: Brain Trauma, Bee Stings, Paxlovid, Wound Care

Share Button

Joe Alton MD, aka Dr. Bones, covers a broad range of topic in this episode, including traumatic brain injuries like concussions and worse. Head injuries will be common in survival settings, and the medic can still be effective even with limited supplies and materials.

Also, Paxlovid, the COVID therapy, has been free so far (which is good, since it costs an average of $530) but that changes in mid-2023, simply because the FDA hasn’t approved it fully yet. Medicare Part D won’t cover it until it does, but these things may take a while, which could put some lives at risk. Dr. Alton discusses further.

Plus, a question from a listener who has become more and more allergic to bee stings. What can she do to desensitize herself and avoid anaphylactic shock? Dr. Bones thinks aloud as to some options.

Finally, some pointers on soft tissue wound care to help the off-grid medic help an injured survivor recover fully. All this and more in the latest episode of The Survival Medicine Podcast! To listen in, click below:

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

Joe Alton MD
