Weston, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/17/2013 -- While millions dread a disaster or catastrophic event, few are medically prepared for a situation where an ambulance or hospital is not available. With such knowledge making the literal difference between life and death, a compelling handbook by two U.S. medical professionals could be the most important new release for generations.
‘The Survival Medicine Handbook: A Guide for when Help is NOT on the Way’ gives readers a head-start on any disaster; an advantage that could see them and their families pull through situations few others survive.
The Survival Medicine Handbook™ is a guide for those who want to be medically prepared for any disaster where help is NOT on the way. The expanded second edition of the 3 category Amazon bestseller (Survival Skills, Disaster Relief, Safety/First Aid) is geared to enable the non-medical professional to deal with all the likely issues they will encounter in catastrophic scenarios. Survival Medicine Handbook™ is not your standard first aid book. It assumes that no hospital or doctor is available in the aftermath of a catastrophic event. This book will give you the tools to handle injuries and illness for when YOU might be the end of the line with regards to your family's medical well-being. In circumstances where medical personnel are overwhelmed and access to modern technology is limited or non-existent, Survival Medicine Handbook™ is the essential reference book for every library. Written in plain English, you'll find step-by-step instructions on how to identify and treat over 100 different medical issues. The second edition also covers alternative remedies for almost every possible medical condition in situations where modern healthcare is inaccessible.
Joseph Alton, M.D. and Amy Alton, A.R.N.P. are a physician and nurse practitioner team also known to the preparedness community as “Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy”. The Altons believe that you should be able to use all the tools in the medical woodshed in times of trouble.
