    Got my copy yesterday!



    It's also a good idea to have a reference guide on hand as well. One also may want to have a Physicians Desk Reference as well. Some mention that getting a download or hard copy of "Where There's No Doctor" and "Where There's No Dentist" as additional resources.

    Good for you Black Blade. Everyone thinks 911 emergency is only a phone call away.
    Hiking in the woods, someone falls and breaks their femur. Uh oh.
    Get the book. Your next actions could save a life or kill someone.

    Some of them just can't seem to imagine that it's not. Over half of Americans are city dwellers now, where there's cellular service everywhere and the Magic Helicopter to whisk you to an emergency room. That's just TV stuff in the rural Ozarks.

    After being first on the scene (after those involved) to a wreck that involved body parts laying in the street, I realized that dimly-remembered 45-year-old Cub Scout snakebite procedures and the CPR course I took weren't all that useful. I called the police, fire department, and three local hospitals trying to find out if there was a first aid course around. Nope, they've all gone away. Nobody could tell me what happened, but I'm guessing liability issues. People kept directing me to the Red Cross. The Red Cross only teaches CPR and their new electroshock machine, not much use for major trauma.

    I finally found an old military battlefield medicine booklet that told me what I wanted to know. Basically, all you *can* do is make sure the airway is clear, cover any sucking chest wounds, where to put pressure to stop arterial bleeding on the limbs. Then you go off for help if you need to.

    Sorry, with the high rate of hepatitis and HIV, if it's a stranger they better hope someone else will do CPR if they need it.

    Default New CPR...

    New method. My girlfriend watches those Doctor shows. They were showing the old CPR versus new method.
    After 4 minutes or so, the brain gets cooked.
    So I guess????? now they want us too concentrate on the chest pump, more than the airway breathing.
    They "the Doctors" said. Their is enough oxygen in the blood too keep a person alive for quite a while. Too concentrate more on getting blood too the brain.
    While working for a ski area. I did CPR on a guy for over an hour.
    Thank God my partner took the mouth. If he was not there. The guy was gonna die. I aint taking the mouth.
    He died anyway. Had a nice watch. I should have grabbed the damn thing. He didnt need it anymore.

    For CPR use a CPR shield. Many have a one way valve so if the person your doing CPR on coughs, vomits, etc no body fluids or their breath will go into your mouth. Kind of like a condom for the mouth - and a way for one to protect themselves from various diseases.
    Here is a link to one Amazon.com: CPR Shield: Health & Personal Care
