Survival Doctor James Hubbard, MD has written a new book, Living Ready Pocket Manual – First Aid: Fundamentals for Survival.
This book will give you knowledge and skills to potentially save a life during an emergency or disaster. Dr. Hubbard gives easy to follow step by step directions on what to do in such situations as:
- severe wounds
- hyperthermia and hypothermia
- broken bones and joints
In high stress situations, you don’t need a lot of complex explanations and jargon that will only confuse you. This books gives an average person exactly what’s needed to take action and follow through.
There is also a section on what to include in a first aid kit some of which I found lacking in my own kit. Dr. Hubbard also reminds us to keep additional water for first aid purposes such as cleaning wounds. There is also a section detailing what types of antibiotics target certain illnesses.
You never know when you’ll find yourself as a first responder in a disaster. The book is well-organized which makes it easy for someone to use in an emergency. It is small enough to keep in a bug out bag, or a hiking backpack. I think this book would also make a great gift for non-prepper recipients. I am sure by now you’ve concluded I highly recommend Living Ready Pocket Manual.
