"Burns" includes the following information:

4 Steps to Treating a Burn During a Disaster
The difference between first, second and third degree burns
Burn Complications to watch for
Debridement: How to Remove Dead Skin - and When You Should
How to Make a Good Burn Dressing
How to Use an Aloe Vera Plant
Using Honey as an Antibiotic
How to sterilize Instruments
Burn care supplies

You'll learn why cold water is better than ice, why you should skip the butter and sticking to the aloe vera, and how to safely remove hot tar.

The Survival Doctor discusses why pain free burns can be the most dangerous, and the three warning signs you need to look for to tell if there is damage that isn't healing.

If there is severe damage, the section on how to safely remove an eschar (the dry, leathery remains of dead skin) is something you need to know that is rarely addressed.

In both books (Burns and Wounds), The Survival Doctor clearly states that this advice is not a substitute for care by a trained medical professional, and encourages people to get basic medical training where available. (The Red Cross offers training courses, and local tech schools may also offer EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) training.) For serious injuries, professional medical care as soon as possible is always recommended.

I highly recommend the Wounds and Burns e-books by The Survival Doctor. (Checking out his site is a good idea, too.) When emergencies happen, we all should have enough knowledge to help out until more trained folks arrive. It's that simple. This is an inexpensive way to learn the basics.

I just finished reading Dr. Hubbard's book, Burns. It's an outstanding addition to anyone's library. It was easy and entertaining to read and contained very little medical jargon. He included tips for using natural remedies, such as aloe vera and honey. I didn't realize just how helpful honey is in healing wounds.

Dr. Hubbard's instructions are easy to understand and the book's various links are helpful and easy to navigate.

After reading this ebook, I am not nearly as intimidated at the thought of helping someone with a burn.

From a practical stand point this book is critical. Although we as a nation rarely see burn victims, they happen everyday in every City in every State. Burns are nasty, burns will kill quickly. The ability to address a burned wounded is critical. We spend most of our time outdoors around camp fires or working on combustion engines, and other hot stuff.

This book was simply in our best interest.

Well written and edited! There is ample information and how to here, and it will all come in handy for those times when good medical help is not available. This book is a must have in the boogie bag along with a good First Aid Kit.

I was hoping for a more in-depth guide other than clean it and put honey on it
Most of the text is a copy and paste from the other book wounds
