The Prepper’s Medical Handbook

The basis of adequate prepping is being prepared for both common and dire events that may occur under the worst of all possible circumstances. These circumstances might include the breakdown in normal emergency support services (such as calling 911), the lack of an ability to obtain additional supplies, and the probability that you will not be able to rely on anyone but members of your immediate group or yourself.

Prepping requires forethought with regard to food, water supplies, power, and protection – all areas of significant technical preparation. Self-reliant medical care is no exception.

This book provides the basis of prevention, identification, and long-term management of survivable medical conditions and can be performed with minimal training.

It helps you identify sources of materials you will need and should stock-pile, it discusses storage issues, and directs you to sources for more complex procedures that require advanced concepts of field-expedient techniques used by trained medical persons such as surgeons, anesthesiologists, dentists, or midwifes and obstetricians.

Two critical components of medical prepping is the concept of “off grid” versus “no grid.”

This book is structured around this concept. You will be advised how to manage most problems with no outside assistance, that is, without contact with the grid.

However, it is also important to know when it is important to rely on grid support, when a patient should be seen by an advanced care provider. But then back to the other issues: What if there is no grid or it is impossible for you to return to the grid for whatever reason? Then you must also know how to provide management under a TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it) event, when the grid simply will not be available to you.

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK – There are four ways to rapidly identify where in this book to find the information you need.

First – A quick glance through the contents can lead you to the proper chapter and subject.

Second – the Initial Assessment and the Focused Assessment not only describe how to perform a physical examination and what to look for, but these sections also refer you to the page of the book that tells you what to do if something is wrong.

Third – Throughout the book various sections have diagnostic tables with references to further evaluate or explain treatment options.

Fourth – the Clinical Reference Index at the end of the book provides a comprehensive cross-reference between symptoms, conditions, and treatments. Subjects are listed using both medical jargon and vernacular descriptions.

  • Medical Emergencies on or off the grid
  • Managing bone, joint, soft tissue, and other trauma
  • Pain and fever
