VIDEO: Do You Know the Top 5 Crisis Related Injuries?

Punctures, abrasions, and other injuries happen easily enough when in the wilderness. However, these common injuries can quickly become major issues and possibly even life-threatening during a survival situation.

In this video, Tyler covers in-depth information and treatment tips for the types of injuries that are most common in a disaster or crisis environment, according to Survival MD: What to Do When There’s No Doctor. These include lacerations, abrasions, puncture wounds, fractures, and burns.

Sometimes injuries can be avoided with proper protective equipment, but accidents happen. When they do, it’s best to have the right equipment and, better yet, the proper knowledge to keep the situation from getting worse.

Tyler discusses the importance of understanding the “mechanism of injury” and how that information can help you diagnose the injury quickly. He then offers suggestions for first aid and medical equipment that can help you properly address the type of injuries you’re most likely to encounter in a crisis environment.

With proper training and some simple equipment, you can be ready to address these five common crisis-related injuries. However, it’s important to remember that regardless of how much supplies you have or how good your bug-out plan might be, it’s all too easy to be taken out by an infection from an improperly treated wound or injury.

Some of Tyler’s diagnoses and treatment suggestions are quite unique. This information could literally be life-saving, from burn treatment products to a way to check for fractured bones without an x-ray. Whatever you do, don’t miss this video.

This video gives you just a small sample of the unique knowledge included in Survival MD: What to Do When There’s No Doctor. This book goes to a much deeper level than basic first aid manuals, with a specific focus on survival situations.

Tyler White is one of those rare creators of online survival content who is amply qualified. Growing up on a ranch, Tyler learned about homesteading and preparedness as a way of life, taught by grandparents who had lived through the Great Depression. Although he had already worked at a guide in Alaska, served with U.S. Army, Tyler knew there was more to primitive survival than he could learn from military schools or other outdoorsmen. His passion for primitive survival drove him on a quest to track down the most knowledgeable instructors in the field, traveling from Utah to the Amazon to Canada and finally back to Utah. Like all competent survivalists, Tyler has experience in a broad range of subjects. Highlights from his background includes criminal justice, law enforcement, archery, small arms, amateur radio, farming, gardening, raising cattle, and poultry. He has attended classified schools, worked in law enforcement, studied too many martial arts to list, and achieved the rank of 2nd Dan in Shōrin-ryū karate.

  • Bacterial pathogenic intrusions start the first second of an injury to our skin as a barrier, so actions the seconds after are critical to wound infection prevention. Precious life saving time would be lost in preparing sterile solutions then and the location and circumstances and supplies on hand might not conducive to doing that, meaning more time lost in transportation and even dealing with other immediate issues, perhaps related, so preparedness in advance is lifesaving.

    I prepare sterile solutions with the exact osmotic balance of blood which is 0.9% high purity salt in distilled water and pressure canned in quart canning jars to maintain sterility. I keep new industrial quality versions of the common hand garden and household spray bottle. The the nozzle can be adjusted to a needle like powerful stream that can sting. This presurized sterile solution can be used to dislodge wound contamination and wash it out. That is significant to prevent infection from getting a powerful start and might even be all the body needs for its own immune defenses to prevail particularly if done well and promptly.

    For both, your preparedness is necessary as simply the knowledge alone is insufficient.
