Survival at Sea


In this episode of the Survival Medicine Hour, hosts Joe Alton MD, aka Dr. Bones and Amy Alton, ARNP, aka Nurse Amy discuss the antiseptics you should consider for your medical storage, how to tell sprains from fractures without modern medical imaging, and what to do when your boat capsizes in open water and you find yourself alone with or without a life vest.  Plus, Nurse Amy answers a question as a member of the expert council on Jack Spirko’s Survival Podcast regarding what medical supplies would be helpful for the motorcyclist on the highway!
