This week, Joe and Amy Alton go to Sanibel Island, where good friends and popular podcasters Jack and Dorothy Spirko are vacationing, for an interview on the occasion of Jack's 10th anniversary of his popular "Survival Podcast".

Plus, here we are in the first days of summer, and you can be sure it’ll be a cruel one in most of the country this year. But you’re going to be out and about, and you’ve got to be careful. It was pretty darn hot in Sanibel, and if we didn’t keep track of our exposure to the sun, we could easily have gotten in trouble. Find out how to identify and deal with heat exhaustion and heat stroke, serious heat-related emergencies.

Also, increased activities this summer or in survival settings put you at risk for orthopedic injuries like sprains, strains, and fractures. Joe and Amy discuss how to identify, treat, and prevent these problems, plus a little on how to tell the difference between a spraina and a fracture.

All this and more on the Survival Medicine Hour podcast with Joe Alton MD and Amy Alton ARNP!


Wishing  you the best of health in good times or bad,

Joe and Amy Alton
