"The Survival Doctor's Guide to Wounds," on sale July 17

“The Survival Doctor’s Guide to Wounds” goes on sale next Tuesday, with a special discount for 24 hours!

by James Hubbard, M.D., M.P.H.

I’m so excited. After many months—really years—of preparation, I’m publishing my first two in a series of mulitmedia, interactive e-books.

The Survival Doctor’s Guide to Wounds and The Survival Doctor’s Guide to Burns will take you step-by-step through the process of evaluating and treating these common injuries—from minor, everyday cuts to life-threatening, third-degree burns. And to thank you, I’m offering a special discount for the first 24 hours they’re on sale.

About the New, Interactive Survival Books

The books, on sale next Tuesday (July 17) through Amazon.com, are written in the same user-friendly manner as my blog posts, but with a more thorough focus on one particular subject. You’ll learn how to evaluate an injury and treat it, and what to do if something goes wrong.

For instance, in The Survival Doctor’s Guide to Wounds:

  • I start with the most basic steps of how to stop a wound from bleeding.
  • If what I tell you won’t stop the bleeding, you can click a link to figure out why and what to do next.
  • I link to short videos on how to numb a wound and how to close it with staples, sutures, tape, or hair.
  • I explain why some wounds should stay open and when you may need antibiotics, which antibiotics work the best, and what to do if you don’t have any to take.

I suggest reading the books over a few times. I think you’ll find that easy to do; they’re not long—fewer than 50 pages each. Then keep them handy for quick reference when needed. That’s the way we doctors do it. Some things we know down pat, almost like a reflex. Other things we don’t see so often, but we know enough to go to the references.
