A.N.T.S. • Re: Where do you Draw the Line on Providing for the Family

September 12, 2017 pilgrimtr 0

after hurricane Ivan in 2004. I came home from the fire department after being on duty for 72 hours straight. only to find my wife family had move in. you see I bought a 20 KW generator three days before the storm hit and they know it. so we had 14 adults three babes. and seven dogs. power was out for fourteen days. since then I’ve watched this same people buy boats, cars, and all kinds of “toys”. but not one them have prepped for hard times. so when Irma came through I told my wife if we get hit and lose power this time, we are not an evacuation center for the unprepared. I will lock the gate and they will not come in. we are debt free and have a store for gas, diesel, food , water. Because we prepared. And I am not a welfare compound. pilgrim :x:gunsmile:

General Preparedness Discussion • Re: 2017 SEPTEMBER – What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month

September 7, 2017 pilgrimtr 0

being on the gulf coast of Florida and with Harvey, Irma. Jose. and Katia. I filled two 55 gallon barrels. one with gas, and the other with diesel for the generator. fill containers with water and changed oil and filter on the generator. picked up around the property and checked the hurricane shutters. why buy bottled water when I can fill it from the faucet. yes I’m on a well with a generator but, it’s best to be prepared. after all it is a prepper site. pilgrim

I was listening to rush a few days ago and heard him say. go in to you kitchen there you will find a sink at the top of the sink you will find a faucet. take a bottle and fill it you will then have bottled water. “(DUH) Me not Rush”
Also I have lived on the gulf coast all my life. at the start of hurricane season we fill a barrel with gas, and at the end of the hurricane season we use it in are vehicle’s. so we are not wasting money. and we don’t have to sit in lines trying to get gas. and if you say you don’t have the money to do that. you do have it, you just need to plan better. YOUR NOT SPENDING ANY MORE MONEY. you will use the gas. it’s not like your going to quit driving after hurricane season. ;) pilgrim

Swamp all that you wrote is true but the question was how do you treat shock when there are no hospitals or when they are over filled. I was addressing the question that rickyticky asked. if you have a person in anaphylactic shock. unless you have 1:1000 epinephrine to administer all the basic shock treatment will do no good. if they are in cardiogenic shock unless you have the correct meds and can determine what arrhythmia they are in you cannot correct the problem. if they are in septic shock due to and infection. and you do not have the antibiotics again you can not correct the problem. if it is a hypovolemic problem due to internal bleeding unless you can perform surgery. again the basic are no good. the treatments that you have quoted are for treatable shock from external bleeding or shock that can be rectified by environmental correction. in a SHTF scenario when you can’t dill 911 as I said in my first post if you don’t have the advanced life support skills and the equipment and knowledge to administer them the basic shock treatment will not cure the patient. pilgrim

rickyticky,
it’s been quite a while since paramedic school but I believe there are seven types of shock. some are treated with volume replacement, hemorrhagic shock, bleeding. some with medication epinephrine. anaphylactic shock. insect stings allergy’s. the best thing you can do is education. learn the types of shock and how to treat them. some you will not be able to treat unless you have the ability to administer an IV intravenous solution to replenish the volume. if not an IV, the only other thing you can do in a bleeding situation is, stop the bleeding, raise the lower extremity’s. and keep them warm. in this situation you may not be able to give them liquids by mouth because of nausea. and if they throw up the patient may aspirate the fluid into there lungs. So you see there is no easy answer to your question. educate your self. and still, if you don’t have the equipment, all the knowledge will only tell you why the died.. good luck and God bless pilgrim

If you have had chicken pox. and are nearing 50 get the shingles anti virus shot. it’s worth the money if you have insurance. it should pay for it. if not it’s still worth the money spent. also check out colloidal silver. it’s a natural anti biotic that will guard against many viruses. look it up and do research. pilgrim
