With the current state of modern medicine, getting a cut, sprain, or broken bone is no longer the death sentence that our ancestors faced. With proper medical attention, you can get patched up and on your way in no time.
But what do you do if these medical systems fail, are destroyed, or are jammed with other survivors?
How will you make sure you or someone you love doesn’t die unnecessarily?
The best way to insulate yourself from this type of tragedy is to make sure you learn some basic survival first aid.
First aid is an invaluable skill set to learn and to help get you started we have teamed up with Dr James Hubbard of TheSurvivalDoctor.com.
Besides being a practicing doctor for the last 30 years, Dr Hubbard has also published five easy to understand books on survival first aid (see them here). In this article he walks us through some basic problems that are likely to occur in a survival situation and what you can do to save lives when it matters most.
