Medical/First Aid Books: Survival Medicine

These three books from the Hesperian Foundation were written to help health care workers in poverty stricken areas where professional health care is hard to come by.  These are great tools for laymen out there helping and serving their fellow man, especially during a crisis.

Note:  Most of the information in these books is very useful, but they include some information that is morally wrong and we don't agree with.  If you have any questions, please call.

You will learn the ins and outs of the "big five" considerations of survival nursing; the must-have supplies to keep in stock and how to obtain them; tricks for handling the mountains of laundry generated by a nursing station; how to maintain a low profile with your survival nursing station and why itís important; how to sew up wounds, pull teeth, deliver babies and provide physical therapy under primitive conditions; and more.
