Survival Medicine Videos on YouTube

So, this is a bit of a different kind of post.  There are a LOT of video links, but they are really good.

Being a physician who is very interested in Wilderness Medicine and self-sufficiency, it is not uncommon for "non-medical" people to ask me about "medical things" they could do at home.  There is so much great information on the internet, but there is also a lot of bad information on the internet.  So how do you determine what is good or not?  Here is one series of videos that I would recommend.  While not the best video or audio quality, the content is very good.

The following videos have been created by Dr. Eric Wilke who is an Emergency Medicine physician.  Based on his medical mission work around the world, he wanted to give solid and reliable medical information for people "where there is no doctor".  These videos have good information on a variety of topics, and they are a great place to start learning how to be more medically self-sufficient.
