Survival Medicine Podcast: Riot Survival, Shark Attack, Suture Materials, More

Share Button

In this episode of the Survival Medicine Podcast, Dr. Joe and Nurse Amy Alton discuss a wide variety of topics, including how to implement the best strategies to stay safe during a civil unrest unrest. With the last several months seeing protests throughout college campuses and a presidential election coming up, you should know what to do.

Also, it’s summer and there have been several shark attacks in Florida and elsewhere already. What do you to avoid an encounter, besides just staying out of the water? You still have a higher chance of getting hit by lightning, but it’s interesting to talk about.

Suture materials are part and parcel of the medical supplies of the serious survival medic, but few have a working knowledge of the different types and what to use for what injury. Dr. Joe Alton and Nurse Midwife Amy both have a lot of experience suturing, and tell you what you need to know.

Plus, a question from a listener prompts a talk about the time-honored wound care aid called “Dakin’s Solution.”
