#354 Survival Medicine Hour podcast
Ask anyone on the street which of the five senses they would least be willing to sacrifice. They probably will tell you that their vision is the sense they would most want to preserve. Imagine a world where a disaster has taken society to the brink, what would you do with less than perfect vision? Would you know how to treat common eye infections and other conditions? Would you know what to do when an eye is injured due to trauma?
Joe Alton MD and Amy Alton ARNP devote this episode to eye issues that might face the medic in austere settings. They discuss how to deal with various problems likely to be part and parcel of situations where modern medicine and technology are not an option.
Wishing you the best of health in good times or bad,
Joe and Amy Alton
