SURVIVAL MEDICINE HOUR PODCAST

buboes

Infected lymph glands, called Buboes, of Bubonic Plague

An infection is defined as the invasion of the body by microscopic organisms. A pathogen is any agent that can cause a disease, but the term is usually used to describe a microbe. Microscopic germs cause injury to tissues in a number of ways, often by producing toxic substances that damage the cells. Joe Alton MD discusses the different types of microbes that can affect your chances of survival if modern medicine isn’t an option.

A boy in Idaho is recovering after contracting plague — the first human case in the state in more than two decades. The Plague? Where did that come from? Dr. Joe Alton discusses the modern history of Plague in the U.S., plus how to identify and treat it early and completely.

You might think that Penicillin family drugs were the first to be used by the general public, but another popular family of antibiotics called sulfonamides, or sulfa drugs, were actually on the market even earlier. Indeed, it has been called “the first miracle drug”. Sulfonamides deserve credit for saving tens of thousands of lives during World War Two. It was so widely used, that many soldiers’ first aid kits came with the drug in pill or powder form. Learn more about this drug and how it fits in with your medical supplies for times of trouble.

I do not know of a single human on this planet who enjoys mosquitoes, ticks, roaches, or creepy crawlies. Barring the entomologist in the world, being outside with bugs can mess up a perfect camping trip. Fortunately, there are many options to spray around and life is good. However, in a grid down scenario, we will not have the luxury of heading to the local big box and getting a new can of mosquito, roach, or wasp spray.

SURVIVAL MEDICINE HOUR #361

Plague Doctor

Plague Doctor

An outbreak of plague in Madagascar has killed 124 people and infected 1200. Although not an uncommon occurrence in the rural areas, this epidemic has hit the larger cities in the island nation, and is the deadlier version called “pneumonic plague“. Pneumonic plague can be cured if found very early but if not, invariably results in death. Dr. Alton tells you all about bubonic, pneumonic, and septicemic plague and what the off-grid medic could do to prevent this terrible infectious disease from running rampant.

ascites

hepatitis damage

Also, inflammation of the liver, called “hepatitis“, is caused by various viruses which are harder to cure than a bacteria like what causes the plague. There are several types of hepatitis, and it’s important to know what to do to avoid becoming a victim of it. Symptoms, diagnosis, and prevention are discussed by our hosts Joe Alton MD and Amy Alton ARNP.

Plus, we start a series on pain issues, discussing different types of pain and also the government’s categorization of drugs into “schedules” from 1-5.

Omega Plague Post-Apocalypse

Omega Plague Post-Apocalypse
D.J. Cooper “Surviving Dystopia

Omega Plague Post-ApocalypseThis week on Surviving Dystopia it is my genuine pleasure to welcome fellow indie author P.R. Principe, Author of the post-apocalyptic novel, Omega Plague: Collapse.

A description from his website on his book, “An airborne strain of the AIDS virus decimates humanity. Bruno Ricasso, an Italian cop, a Carabiniere, struggles to survive on the island of Capri while Europe erupts in flames and society crumbles. But when his solitary existence is broken, Bruno returns to the empty city of Naples in search of answers.

11-18-15 virusCan Bruno find a way to stay alive in the ruins of civilization? Or will Bruno’s past sins prove even more deadly than the Omega Plague?”

This really brings questions to mind about such things we may need to think of in preparing for biological disasters in our efforts. Having served on active duty as a commissioned U.S. Air Force officer I think brings the military perspective to the possibilities in such a scenario.

He also has learned to forge a broadsword and has an amateur radio license, hopefully he can share some that knowledge with us this week and give a perspective that is both valuable and interesting.

As with other Post-apocalyptic authors I have had on the show, I am curious about ways we can use fiction to help enhance our preparedness and provide different perspectives to possible outcomes maybe we could have overlooked. I too would love to delve into the world of the indie artists with him and get his take on the indie world.

11-18-15 ebolaHis book as with mine has an element of the biological dangers that may lie in wait for the unprepared masses. Differences in each of these also affect the means by which we may prepare and keep ourselves safe. He speaks of airborn Aids virus while I found Ebola to be particularly nasty in my book. Either way the issues that come along with any Plague or epidemic are scary and specific. I look forward to gaining his insight and discussing our books and the impact that the scenarios might imply.

Take a moment to grab his book here. Give it a read and join us for some conversation and a look into the thoughts of its author. Check P.R. Principe out on the web as well.
