    I was just here to check and for some reason what I had posted her a few days ago didn’t go through. Anyway, I am an RN with 15 years of experience, though I haven’t been full-time since my cancer diagnosis a few years ago. I have experience in many areas, but mostly in ER/trauma, L&D, cardiac stepdown/rehab, with some geriatrics thrown in for good measure.

    Thanks, and I know you are overly swamped with new requests and your book, so I will be patient waiting for a response. 🙂

  16. MurrDoc says:

    Hello Folks, and Doc

    Brief background. MS in Counseling Psych, then got my DC in ’82. During the period ’75 – ’82 worked at suburban Chicago [Downers Grove – Good Samaritan] ED. Private practice last 29 years, while maintaining some interest in emergency medicine. Been involved in CERT training, continue to work with our local neighborhood association for Emergency Response and Crime Prevention. Father of two.

    Came across Docs’ articles over at Survival Blog, and pleasantly surprised to see that she is the inceptor for this site.

    I’ve always been a fan of “distributed systems.” One of my guiding patient care goals is to make sure they’re fluent with acute management, prevention, and active care – both palliative and rehabilitative routines. My [ and their ] familiarity with infectious medicine, applied biochemistry, first aid, disaster response, public health/pandemic preparedness and self-care guidelines ensures they enjoy maximal benefits.

    Distributed Systems – where there are no “key nodes whose degradation equals “system falldown” – are superior to centralized systems. Medicine and care should be a distributed system. The more my patients know, the better. The better their materiele prep and practice, the better their health and function. The better those two steps have been addressed, the less the likelihood that any provider/system will be overwhelmed in emergency or in cases where help is distant or unavailable.

    I live here in the mountain West.

    I am a RN of 35 years in May. I am licensed in WA and currently own and operate a consulting business linking vulnerable adults with suitable residential living situations, status post a medical event. I’ve worked in all ages and levels of Critical Care, from NICU to ICU/CCU, post-op open heart (child), Med/Surg, Onc., NB nursery, OB/GYN and postpartum, orthopedics, Burn Unit, pediatrics, and home health, with a specialty in wound care, and hospice care. My husband, a police officer, and I are actively engaged in preparedness. As soon as possible, I plan to attend the MedCorps training course. I am hoping to find the equipment, medication, and supplies that we and our two adult children, and their three children might require in a TEOTWAKI situation. Putting together the supplies isn’t as much of a problem as the meds, as you are well aware. I look forward to learning as much as possible from you and your colleagues!

  66. Wh2thdr says:

    This is in reference to the dental post in Survival blog 1-27-11. It is a great post but…I am sitting here feeling like I am picking nits and that is the last thing that I want to do. Dr. Frank J’s post is a good summary, well written, and will be a great help to the right people. With that cookbook, the right tools and supplies, a good coach, and about a hundred extractions you will begin to know what you are doing. While the information is good, I think that kind of detail is beyond the scope of a general blog. There just are too many do-it-your-selfers that might give it a try prematurely and put some one in serious danger when it is not necessary. Then, after that damage is done, they would not know how to handle it.

    I could go into detail with complications that I have seen both in my 35-year practice and in observation of other thoroughly-trained professionals, but let me sum up by saying that opaque blood can fill the mouth in one big hurry if something goes wrong. You can not even see where the flow is coming from. There are ways to take care of this that a trained RN, EMT, Corpsman, will be able to handle. John Q ? I am not so sure. I am more comfortable with that kind of detailed “how to” when I know my audience.

    That thought is opposed by the need to get that information out to those who will use it soberly and only when there is no alternative.

    Now that my rant is over, lets really put our heads together for a professionals only site. There are enough of us out there that would love to provide cross- training to those that have the background and skill base needed to go beyond the basics. I will do all I can to help.
