Wilderness First Aid: What To Do When You Can’t Call 911
Wilderness first aid is the topic of this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio as we talk to Jason Hunt, a survival expert and the co-author with Dave Canterbury of “Bushcraft First Aid: A Field Guide to Wilderness Emergency Care” (Adams Media).
Jason tells us the differences between wilderness first aid and traditional first aid.
He also tells us:
- When a tourniquet is necessary – and when it can be dangerous.
- How to care for someone with a bleeding wound or broken bone.
- Why dehydration is perhaps the biggest concern for someone in a survival situation.
- What to do if someone is vomiting or has diarrhea.
Jason also shares with us tips for treating snakebites.
We learned a lot by talking to Jason. You will, too!
