Recent hurricanes on the West and East Coast have threatened millions, and it’s important for you to know what to do if one of these juggernauts is heading in your direction. Dr. Joe Alton tells you what you need to know.
Last time, we talked about shark attacks, but many more people are injured by less scary critters like sting rays and jellyfish. Dr. Alton tells you what to do for these injuries, and also talks about the recent spate of cases of marine waters that harbor Vibrio vulnificus, the flesh-eating bacteria that has killed several people this summer.
Plus, heavy rains from Cyclone Hilary have caused flash floods and mudslides in the normally desert Southwest. Dr. Bones tells you all about them, and what to do before you build that dream retreat in the mountains, how to harden a home already built, and what to do if the river of mud is an imminent threat.
Plus, are those knock-off tourniquets the equivalent of the world-famous CAT tourniquet? A study from the Journal of Special Ops Medicine is discussed. Do you get what you pay for?
