Medical III

We've all heard the saying "hydrate or die", well, how do you deal with someone who didn't hydrate and is now dying? Ever hear of a sucking chest wound? That's a trick question. All chest wounds suck. Seriously though, a collapsed lung can result from a number of traumas. From blunt force and broken ribs to a gunshot wound. Knowing how to decompress that lung could buy you enough time to get the casualty out of harm's way.

This class will teach you how to: start and discontinue an IV, identify and treat a variety of pleural injuries, and the equipment that you will need to add to your kit to be ready for these types of emergencies.

      You don't have to deliver my beads, I was responding to the comment you made to Prepper Mark so you can get a consensus on where we all live. I can wait until we meet to get the ranger beads as I don't get off work until 4.

      I was afraid of that. Another set came back to me on Saturday. The envelope was all torn up. I think the machines ate yours as well. I will bring you a new set to the class.

      Let's get a concensus of where everyone is coming from. If no one objects to the distance, you are more than welcome to host.
