Abstract:

"The essential guide to take care of your family's health when you can't get medical help or answers right away. It's the worst snowstorm you can remember. The ice-covered streets are abandoned. You hear a boom in the distance, and your computer screen goes blank. Darkness. A crash and another bang from inside the house. In the hallway, your husband sits on the floor, soaked in blood. You dial 911, and all you get is a busy signal. Would you know what to do next? The Survival Doctor's Complete Handbook will teach you just what you need to know to take care of yourself and your loved ones in the event you aren't able to get professional medical help right away. Encompassing but going well beyond immediate first aid, the book covers: how to put a dislocated joint back into place how to prevent hypothermia when your heat has gone out what to do for asthma when you don't have your inhaler whether you can really drink your own urine if you run out of water what to feed your toddler if he has a fever and you have no medicine and much more Featuring more than 100 illustrations, along with quick quizzes and real-life examples, The Survival Doctor's Complete Handbook will take you step by step through the essentials of medical care during a crisis. Perhaps you've been stranded by a sudden storm when out camping. Maybe you live alone in a rural area, and can't easily get to a doctor when you hurt your arm. Or you just want to make sure you and your family are prepared to safely weather the next Superstorm Sandy, polar vortex, tornado strike, heat wave, earthquake, or other natural disaster. Whatever your situation and your health needs, The Survival Doctor's Complete Handbook is your must-have medical resource"--
