This week I’m back with the second installment in our First aid series How to treat wounds.

This episode focuses on wounds both small and big. 

The scope covers both band-aids to sutures. 

But this show is designed to help you build a First aid kit for times with rule of law not for the SHTF. This is for everyday life and injuries. Where you can go see the doctor if need be. 

I have always said that medical training should come before buying an expensicve First aid kit. 

This show will teach you how to treat wounds for now. A kit that will be used all the time in you daily life.

Not one that sits in the closet. 

You will learn ways to close a wound and why you should consider leaving it open. 

And why peroxide is not used on wounds anymore.

This week Mike and I talk about The Best First Aid Medicines You Need.

This first part in our First aid series we cover drugs in your first aid kits. 

Most of the first aid medicines talked about are for minor injuries. More day to day comfort than the collapse scenario. 

Medical care for the SHTF is beyond the scope of a level I and II first aid kit. 

Not to mention the technical skills required for advanced medical procedures. 

Also as a disclaimer, Mike and I are not medical professionals and this is not medical advice.

Towards the end of the episode, we discuss some stronger medicines to carry. And make a case for getting some fish antibiotics.

Ankle Injury

This week our main topic is all about dealing with an ankle injury. What can seem to be a very minor issue, especially now, can be life threatening during a collapse. Making even the tiniest choir into a heavy burden.

I recently had my worst ankle injury. Coming down out of a tree I rolled it completely sideways. At first I thought it was not that bad since I limped inside. Now more than a week later it is still not completely healed. I employed many tactics to get it healed enough to walk. Even still I was completely incapacitated for almost 4 days.

If for some reason I had needed to bug out on foot during that time I would have been screwed. Using crutches wearing a pack is not something I care to do.

We briefly mention looking into mobility work to strengthen the feet to reduce the risk of rolled ankles. Prevention is the better option here. If you do suffer an ankle injury you WILL be down a few days. Period.

Have any suggestion drop them in the comments below.

First aid for snake bites

 

Few unexpected events can put a damper on enjoying the outdoors more than a snake bite.

Fortunately, most snakes living in North America are not poisonous. There are some exceptions however, including copperheads, rattle snakes, coral snakes and water moccasins. Out of all the venomous snakes in North America all but the coral snake share a common trait, in that they all fall into a classification of snakes known as pit vipers. Pit vipers have eyes that are more slit-like in appearance, and all have triangular-shaped heads that feature pits on both sides of the head that are centered between the nostril and the eye.
