  2. Thanks! This is awesome. I always thought that in an emergency or prep situation, Iíd be an awesome person to handle all the medical and first aid issues because Iíve read up on it so much and have a head full of knowledge. Then one day my husband sliced the top of his bald head on something... I canít even remember what now. It wasnít even a bad slice ómostly skin, and only a little blood. A totally superficial wound. He asked me to pull or cut the skin off, and I nearly passed out. Turns out Iím not made for that.

    Thanks for the link. Looks like some good stuff in there. I already learned a couple things in a brief scan. Need to stock up on my Ivermectic (dog worm med). In a pinch, certain animal wormers can be used for people.

    We have been found out.

    We were waiting on 3 other download sites so that we didn't overwhelm anyone. Turns out December is not such a good month for trying to roll out something like this.

    We are working on the print editions right now, formatting that is. After that the ebook edition, which will be a first for us.

    The authors and contributors represent 3 continents once again.

    Over 600 pages in all, a HUGE expansion from the last edition. Lots of new material - basic medical equipment repair and upkeep, surgical sedation and anesthesia, veterinary medicine, austere psych, and even a basic guide to medications with a best-guess on austere production potential. Believe it or not Doc even tried (and succeeded) in brewing Penicillin at home, though that is a story in and of itself.

    The Botanical and Herbal Medicine chapter was left in tribute to our former TB2K member Goatlady, who passed in between editions.

    Our current roustabout member Jones Parker also played a very active role - he can toot his own horn though, if the cougar will let him.

    Just a suggestion: you WILL want a print edition for after TSHTF and all that. Relying on internet access, or even electricity, ain't the best of plans. The print edition will be via an on-demand service and they will be royalty-free, so as cheap as can be had.

    I do caution everyone to make sure whatever download site you use is legit. Just this month we discovered that some scabs in Minsk are SELLING download copies of the last version, and some yahoo from Wisconsin was plagiarizing the nursing chapter as his own for another download elsewhere. This was why we were holding off on the grand announcement - to make a complete list of approved download sites.

    To good health and a better New Year everyone!

    OOOOOOHHHHHHH..............Thank you! I am looking forward to a print copy as soon as it's available.
    I keep the Ranger/SF medical book in my basic bag, which stays in the back of the Blazer I was an EMT in my younger days. I've used my bag for more things than I can count; even in a metro area with lots of EMS services it's good to have stuff handy when you come up on a wreck or something. I've just started reading this download and it looks to be incredibly useful. Over the next day or so I hope to read it cover to cover.
    Awesome new years gift!

    I need to change my signature, there was a problem with the other site, which is why it isn't being used. Not that the old one is any great shakes but it still functions for now.

    yrs ago I* had an absess on my neck

    I fidgeted with it for a few months then went to dr.

    dr says " I cant do it here (in office) so off to er I went

    he opened up

    then closed it

    says "its a job for a surgeon"

    meanwhile I am getting PO,d and went home and got the razor blade and the mirror

    wife walks in a and says "watchdoin?"

    she says "I can help"

    (word of advice) NEVER give wife razor blade and point to your neck.

    not even a bullet to bite on she sets to doin the deed.

    next day at ER...


    surgeon stitches up this mess that is my neck

    in a cpl weeks I decided that I didnt wanna drive into town to take the stitches out

    wife says

    "I can help"

    its been over 15 yrs now and there s still one stitch that didn't get out..

    always pull on the knotted side..

    if you pull on the unknotted side.. you may have a stitch forever

    Any guess on the cost to do this?

    Once I saw this thread, I realized that this was a book,
    that I needed. I downloaded the pdf, and read through parts of it,
    and its a great book.

    I am a Wilderness EMT, a National Outdoor Leadership School alum(NOLS)
    so this book is right down my alley, so to speak.

    Being that I am now elderly, I dont spend that much time,
    out in the wilderness areas these days,
    but having the wilderness pre-hospital knowledge,
    is what I consider, an essential prepper skill set.

    Will get the book when its available.
    I already have a decent Wilderness EMT library, and this book will be
    right at home with my other wilderness medicine books.

    Please be safe everyone, and please arm up.

    Regards to all deplorables.

    The answer is... it depends.

    Guesstimates are as follows:

    Softcover B/W - $25.00

    Hardcover B/W - $35

    Hardcover Color - $90

    Truthfully, as we haven't yet submitted a formatted unit yet we don't have the actual cost, just projections based on the publisher's menu. The color edition is still up in the air due to cost alone.

    It was suggested that perhaps using a collection of color plates instead of photos hither and yon throughout the book might bring the cost of the color edition down, but we have to see yet, and that would be an entirely different edit to pull them out and insert reference numbers for the photo plates. The color edition cost illustrates the disparity between print-on-demand publishing and traditional bulk volume printing.

    Did the Wilderness First Responder+ course in Belize. Audience was mostly medical students, a few civilians including a fellow from The Netherlands, a couple of British 4th year med students, a newly minted doc, and a couple pre-meds. Interesting course made more so by using the jungle as our practice ground.

    Finally got this printed out and into a binder. I was reading Improvised medicine last night and saw that the earlier edition of Survival and Austere Medicine is listed in the references in the Dental chapter.

    And as of today the College of Remote and Offshore Medicine is hosting the book download for our European friends. That makes hosting available on 3 continents now. They are also adding it to their curriculum as a resource work.

    CoROM as they are called is a serious school. Tactical, industrial, remote (think 3rd world) and critical-care Paramedic training, add-on stuff for those of us already trained and experienced but who want to carry it to the next level. You can even arrange a week of flight time with a helicopter EMS service through them. Oh, that's in Hungary, BTW. The College is located on Malta. The instructors are kind of high-speed/low drag types, too.
