Preface of The Survival Medicine Handbook pdf

When we first embarked on the adventure of writing the first edition of this book, “The Doom and BloomTM Survival Medicine Handbook”, we were overwhelmed by the challenge that confronted us. Although there was a wealth of information about the occasional few of injury on a wilderness hike, books considered the possibility of a setting so remote or devastated that NO hope of modern medical care existed for the long term. Even books that were meant for in third world environments often ended their use to get to modern medical chapters by exhorting their reader’s care as soon as possible.

We realized that we were in uncharted territory. Our concern was the major catastrophe that isolated a family from modern medicine for the long term. Trained personnel would not exist in this scenario, or would be overwhelmed by the demand for their services. What does a mother or father do in this circumstance? How would they deal with injuries or sickness? What could we, as medical professionals, do to improve their family’s chances of surviving and staying healthy?

We decided that a how-to manual in plain English was the best option. We had to put together a strategy for each medical issue that we felt a head of household would encounter in times of trouble. It had to be simple. It had to make use of limited resources in a sustainable manner. It had to be realistic.


The last part was the hardest. It’s difficult to make people believe that a head injury or a gunshot wound to the chest may not be survivable. No one wants to return to a time when, for example, pregnancy was a major cause of death. It’s painful to think about, but we must face the hard truth, sometimes.
