Book Synopsis



No one knows what the next disaster will be: earthquake, Coronavirus, flu epidemic, flood, terrorist attack. But everyone should know how to survive a medical emergency if a medical professional isn't available.

From Dr. Joe Alton and Amy Alton ARNP comes an updated edition of their bestseller The Survival Medicine Handbook. This unique medical book is meant to enable the average person to handle injuries and illness in situations in which modern medical facilities and professionals aren't available due to a disaster.

This book is written by America's top medical preparedness experts: Joe Alton, MD, and Amy Alton, ARNP. Their mission: to put a medically prepared person in every family for when medical help is not on the way. Using decades of medical experience, they address, in plain language, dozens of medical issues associated with surviving disasters and epidemics. The Altons also discuss the medical supplies needed to become a medical asset to your family and community as well as alternative and natural strategies for when pharmaceuticals aren't available. Topics include:

  • Appendicitis and Conditions that Mimic It
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Mosquito-Borne Illnesses
  • Allergic Reactions and Anaphylaxis
  • Head Injuries
  • Animal Bites
  • Snake Bites
  • Head injuries
  • Kidney Stones
  • Dislocations and Fractures
  • Nosebleeds
  • Pain Medications
  • Natural Pain Relief
  • And much much more!

Most medical books will send you to the doctor or hospital when an emergency happens. The Altons assume that the worst might actually happen--that the average person could be left without medical help in a disaster. With their book, you can keep your family healthy in times of trouble.
