Duct Tape 911 Book Review

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com

I had an opportunity to read Duct Tape 911 written by Dr. James Hubbard, The Survival Doctor.

I knew duct tape is really used for fixing things, but I never really considered it’s uses for medical issues.  Reading the book has changed my mind.  There are a number of uses, including:

  • ankle brace, wrist splint or arm sling
  • wound closure
  • remove cactus spines
  • wart removal
  • remove a ring from a swollen finger

… and a lot more.

Each section is illustrated with drawing that make it easy to understand what is being described.

As typical for Dr. Hubbard’s style, the book is written in simple conversational terms, and you won’t find any complicated medical jargon.  This book would make a great gift for friends or relatives you hope would get prepared – it is fun and makes a great conversation starter.   In short, it is a book that everyone can use, and should be kept in your first aid kit, along with a few rolls of duct tape

  1. Duct tape has got to be one of the best inventions ever. I was trained as an Army medic and absolutely hate medical tape, duct tape blows it out of the water for medical use.

    1. Hi Pierce, that is great to know medics actually prefer duct tape. I thought it was just a backup for when there is nothing else. Thanks for the comment!
