The Prepper's Medical Handbook (Paperback)
Prepping requires forethought with regard to food, water supplies, power, and protection - all areas of significant technical preparation. Self-reliant medical care is no exception. This book provides the basis of prevention, identification, and long-term management of survivable medical conditions and can be performed with minimal training.
