Medical issues have never been one of my strong points. But, I have had some training an experience over the years. What this has done is taught me how little I really know. As a result I try and accumulate medical manuals whenever I get a chance. A friend recently sent me a link to a download of the 2001 edition of the Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook. This manual is over 700 pages in size.
Go to http://www.nh-tems.com/documents/Manuals/SOF_Medical_Handbook.pdf for your free download.
This handbook is not going to make you and expert overnight, but it can provide you with helpful information. I had a Medical Doctor tell me that he would find one of these manuals useful, when he encounters issues outside of his specialty. Like he said “Doctors can’t remember everything”.
I suggest that you download this handbook and add it to your preps.
