Within the last 30 years, after working in the health field as a medical professional and obtaining a copy of the first edition of this very helpful guide, this book is outstanding in every aspect as a valuable reference to emergency situations, where no other help is available. Although I have collected hundreds of books that cover this topic, I felt this one is extremely useful for my daughter to have in her home. This handbook outlines several conditions for one to identify with as it offers step-by-step instructions, with solutions for unexpected health problems. This informative guide also prepares for any disaster, where help is not on the way. It is specifically designed for the non-medical professional to help deal and cope with unexpected issues during emergencies. Some of the topics covered are fractures, nosebleed, chest pain, and much more. Dr. Joseph Alton highlights several medical conditions, covering over 100 medical issues. In addition, he provides information on how to handle different situations, what to look for, and how to treat. This is a valuable, essential reference book for every home. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
This is probably a decent book to have for most preppers, but I'm really not certain it was worth $35.00. It reminds me a little of "Where There is no Doctor" ($20.00), but for preppers . There are a lot of western, orthodox concepts that are very applicable to post-disaster medicine, as well as some that aren't, I believe due to lack of austere medicine experience on the part of the authors. All of the information in here is available from other sources, but if it's worth it to you to have it all in one book, then by all means, spend the money.
The place that the book is extremely weak is in the area of alternative medicine, which would very likely be the area that a person needs to be strongest in if there really is a full collapse. Simply stocking up on pharmaceuticals is just not any kind of answer for the long-range disaster, primarily because of the fact that every single medical situation has to then be judged from a standpoint of rationing whatever you have, all orthodox pharmaceuticals will be looted before anything else, and in a nationwide (or worldwide) collapse, there will be a LOT of need for medical help.
Although the authors stress the need for hygiene, sanitation, wound cleansing, etc., the part that people really need to know is plant medicine. This is no fault of the authors - they just don't have the experience in the area, so the herbal "remedies" they list (and it is just that - bare lists) read like the typical plantain-on-bug-bites 'advice' that you can find on even the least herbal-literate websites. In other words, useless plant medicine knowledge if you really want to try to put it to the test that a post-disaster puts everything to.
This kind of thing isn't an empty field of information in the USA.

This is a thick paperback. Its not something you can simply toss into your BOB and take with you. Its very easy reading but if Im in an emergency situation, all the verbage is a waste of precious time. I bought this so I would know how to use my fish biotics and they give a general one-size fits all for about eight recommended drugs but then says I should refer to the PDR or internet for specific diseases. That's not much help since I am definitely not hauling a PDR in my BOB. I returned it because of all the extra words and lack of content. I gave it three stars for ease of reading. As the many listed recommended reading list at the end suggests; this is just a companion book, not an all-inclusive medical survival manual. $35.00 is too much for that kind of book, in my opinion.

After I started my journey into preparedness, I soon realized that there was one category that I didn't feel comfortable in, medical preparedness. I could buy "stuff" and learn and practice skills, but the medical aspect of preparedness; not just acquiring first aid supplies, but knowing what to do if ___ (fill in the blank) happened, bothered me.
I was really excited when I found Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy's website. They post articles on medical preparedness from a collapse scenario perspective. I still read (and link) their stuff...religiously!

The Survival Medicine Handbook is different in that the premise is no one is on the way! Most medical survival books will give the reader information on how to stabilize an injured person until they can receive professional medical treatment. But what if you are in a situation where that is not possible?

I have only read about half of the book, but I am extremely impressed. It provides straight forward, and helpful information on a variety of medical topics. As a healthcare professional myself, I was afraid it would be too basic, but that fear was unfounded. I already have a list of items that I would not have thought to get, & I suspect I will be adding to that list as I continue to read. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to be prepared for a time where medical help is unavailable or non-existent.
