Thanks! I'm headed out now, but I have it book marked for my next sitting.

This is much needed information for all of us if anything breaks!

I just took a quicky look. One concern is covered by this video on infectious disease outbreaks post SHTF:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZzI...ature=youtu.be

Can you expand on this? Point out anything that you might disagree with?

REM,
I'm a fan of The Survival Nurse and agree with everything she said. Regarding the diseases she mentioned, remember you have to get them from someone with the disease (people can be asymptomatic carriers meaning they have the disease and may not even know it but can still spread it).

Prevention is key. You get these through air droplets, hand contact and eating or drinking something contaminated with the germs.
TB--usually get from close contact in an enclosed with someone with the disease who's coughing. If that's the case, yes ventilation is essential. Stay away from the cougher. A mask is also effective. It has to fit properly so there are no air holes. n95 masks work well.

Hep A, Cholera, Typhoid--Drink, wash food, and wash hands with water you can trust. See my post on How to disinfect water at http://www.thesurvivaldoctor.com/201...sinfect-water/ Also you can get Hep A vaccination

Upper respiratory-spread by air and hand-contact with germs. (someone rubs nose, touches doorknob, you touch knob and rub your nose.) Prevention--ventilation, masks, avoid contact, wash hands, pneumonia vaccine, flu vaccine.

Hope that helps.

Hey doc, will you clear this up for me? Is it still standard procedure to tape up busted ribs?

You hear, yes, tape up bruised or broken ribs, then, you hear, no, don't ever tape them up.

I've taped mine in the past, can't really say it helped, but I can't really say it didn't either.

What's your call?

PS. your site is really good and I'm sure it'll help alot of folks. Please keep it going.

Akita,
I don't tape or wrap ribs anymore. As I understand it, the prevailing thought is that it doesn't help healing and it may impede taking good deep breaths which can increase risk for lung problems (pneumonia).

I have a new post on how to survive in cold water and the best way to get out if you fall in, say, through a hole in the ice. Also how to save others. You may already know everything in it, but it's one of those things you better know well before it happens.

I think it's a great post for spouses and children to read. Let me know what you think.

The whole family should watch this video http://www.thesurvivaldoctor.com/201...rough-the-ice/ It's by a guy nicknamed "Dr. Popsicle." Entertaining and informative. Most of what he says could also be used if your boat capsizes in cold water.

Let me know what you think.

Welcome to the site Survival Dr. I spent some time on your site and found it very informative. You provide a great service. Could you give us your opinion on stocking and storing antibiotics?

Thanks, Brookman007,
Good idea to stock, I think. Keep in cool, dry place but don't let freeze. If they get crumbly they're probably getting too old.

Ok Doc, over the years it's been an ongoing argument on the forum in various threads and I am hoping you will settle it once and for all...

Pet meds..... are they safe for humans? Like is Fish Mox really the same as the Amoxicillin you would prescribe a regular patient today?
