Medical Prep 101 + 201 w/ Patriot Nurse
In addition to strengthening our knowledge base, we will also take regular breaks for application. Skills sessions will include physical assessment, taking blood pressure, post-mortem care, drug calculation, austere rehydration (when you don’t have IV fluids), and much more! The student will leave this class equipped with the knowledge and skills to better safeguard their loved ones’ health whatever life may throw at them!
We pick up in 201 where we left off in 101. For retention, we will have a brief recap of 101, and then jump headlong into deeper physical assessment, refining our skills and furthering our knowledge. Total body physical assessment and problem solving will inform our medical preparedness approach.
We will delve into a critical and HIGHLY under-addressed area of preparedness – psychological challenges. We will investigate how a major disaster will affect people’s minds and hearts, causing significant depression, anxiety, and fear. Learning how to assess, prevent and take care of these problems is INTEGRAL to a well-rounded medical survival plan. Additionally, we will discuss options for pain control when the medicine runs out, and how to care for people who are suffering from physical and emotional pain.
Women’s health, STD’s, and BIRTH will also be covered extensively in this class, with skills sessions built around assisting in a birth and preparing for possible complications such miscarriage, excessive bleeding, babies that don’t breathe, and breech birth.
As a final component, we will synergize our knowledge into developing a camp layout and design that facilitates health and wellness of everyone staying at a bug out or retreat. Blending components of 101 and 201, we’ll practice solving issues and challenges of water shortages, human waste management, and the proper disposal of human bodies.
