One of the most overlooked topics in the field of survival medicine is nursing. Doctors or medically trained survivors can patch up a patient after an injury or accident, but it is the survival nurse who provides extended long-term care as well as the dozens of related activities that support the healing process under less-than-ideal conditions. This timely companion to Ragnar Benson's best-selling books on survival medicine tackles the many issues that every serious survival nursing program must face. You will learn the ins and outs of the "big five" considerations of survival nursing; the must-have supplies to keep in stock and how to obtain them; tricks for handling the mountains of laundry generated by a nursing station; how to maintain a low profile with your survival nursing station and why it's important; how to sew up wounds, pull teeth, deliver babies and provide physical therapy under primitive conditions; and more.

Benson covers the basic considerations of shelter, water, food, energy, and sanitation; the "must have" supplies to keep in stock (and how to obtain them); tips for handling mountains of laundry generated by an active nursing station; maintaining a low profile with a survival nursing station (and why that's important); and how to sew up wounds, pull teeth, deliver babies, even provide physical therapy under primitive conditions. An excellent, accurate, accessible written and presented primer, The Survival Nurse will prove indispensable for emergency medical self-reliance in the face of natural disaster or chronic urban deprivation conditions.
