    I can give injections, stitch up a wound, and immobilize a patient and I am willing to do something, anything I can to save life. But I am limited.

    Any recomendations for paper libraries? EMT textbook maybe?
    Yeah man, head over to Half-Priced books and they have a ton of stuff for dirt cheap. I have lots from the military but I also wanted an herbalistic approach to health and well being because one day I will be my family's only doctor. I was finding books for 5 and 6 bucks!! (Grey's Anatomy, the thick book was under $10)

    Yes he did 8 years active duty and 2 years reserve starting right out of high school. He is now a doctor in NC and got interested in medicine as a Medic for the Seals. Now he works for a hospital now as head of their trauma center. He worked for a local fire department as a para medic while he went to school to become a nurse practitioner then worked at that in a Homestead, FL hospital until he became a GP. I have actually learned a lot from him since he got out of the service though I don't see him but a couple times a year now with me living in Kentucky and him in NC, though we do talk often on the phone. He also did some time in NC as a Medical examiner for one of the near by counties there.

    I'm an RN, and I was a first responder in a rural area. I used to carry ACLS certification. I'm retired now. First aid is essential, but, as a survivor, what we will lack is tertiary care. Not having a hospital presents a problem. A lot of deaths will occur from problems now easily treated, such as dehydration from diarrheal disease, which will be common without good water sources. Pneuomnia complicates a lot of colds and flu, imagine no way to treat it. Urinary tract infections that travel up to the kidney. A small cut can kill without antibiotics. One really needs IVs and antibiotics minimally to have much of a chance long term. Any one who needs medication to survive now on a regular basis, say, Insulin, or cardiac meds better be thinking how they plan on acquiring it after armageddon.

    I still believe one of the most credible threats to our survival right now, is a pandemic. It's not glamourous or action packed, but, it is overdue.

    Sure many fish antibiotics can be used on human's and are readily available in a lot of place such as a good local pet store. That is just one source however their are some natural sources to fight infections and such also. The Aloe Vera is a good example of a plant with many healing features but others are others that work also. Here is some info on it Aloe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia There are a number of books on herbal medicines that do work though not as effective as some modern ones they have been used for centuries with good result.

    I do have basic first aid skills, and have had training in basic first aid. I can handle most commonly encountered issues, such as cuts, punctures, burns, fractures, etc. I can manage to stabilize most injuries, but I am not medically trained, so I would look to pass a patient off for such serious work. I know CPR. I can suture and splint. I have a lot of emergency first aid supplies, but I am still working on getting more. I know enough to survive. But Dr. Kildare I am not.

    When that runs out make your own silver (an anti biotic, fungus, virus). I treat my family with ionic and colloidal silver. Love it! (If you're interested Google SilverLungs Generator)
