Straight-forward and comprehensive guide for learning to be a do-it-yourself, at-home doctor When a catastrophic event overwhelms the medical infrastructure—whether it's a natural disaster, civil unrest, pandemic, or societal collapse—life-saving care may not be available for days, months, or ever. Fortunately, this guide gives easy-to-understand treatments that ordinary people can use on everything from stabilizing injuries and preventing shock to setting broken bones and treating major illnesses. Even relatively minor injuries can be fatal without proper care, so this book carefully explains exactly what to do when a loved one needs help. Featuring detailed information on assembling a medical supply kit, assessing needs and choosing the best treatment, this is the ultimate guide to being a self-sufficient survivor. Written by a trusted doctor and survival expert, When Help Is NOT on the Way is not a replacement for a doctor or hospital visit, but when the situation gets so bad that those are not available, readers will be thankful for the information in this life-saving book.
