When tshtf (be it a pandemic or other emergency/disaster) it's a good idea to have a couple of medical textbooks in the house to use as a reference. Many would be difficult to understand without a medical dictionary, so I'd recommend purchasing one of those as well.

So here goes:

1) Cecils Essentials of Medicine -- this is the reader's digest version of the Int. Med textbook. It's a bit pricier than the CDT but better at explaining a disease process. Used copies are in the $30+ range.

2) Current Medical Diagnosis and Treatment (a/k/a CDT) Amazon had a 2004 used copy for $4.50

3) Common Symptom Guide -- you can look up the symptom and it suggested what disease processes to explore. About $20 used

4) Tabers Medical Dictionary. Old used copies are around $5.

5) If you want to expand your collection -- Bates Guide to Physical Exams -- very pricey / even used it's up over $100, but it shows pictures of what a problem looks like.

Obviously if you have kids, you'll probably want the CDT for pediatrics. Most med students hang onto their books for about 5-8 years (anything older on an office shelf and the Jacho (inspectors) crew will comment on them - at which point they are offered for sale.

If the books seem pricey used just remember how much the new versions are. My first semester in school, I spent four figures on textbooks (makes me ill just thinking of it!)

Check out Amazon and half.com for used book bargains.

Great book with natural healing information and details of side effects and interactions organized by the name of the herb as well as by medical conditions.

"Prescription for Herbal Healing" by Phyllis A. Balch, CNC

:arrow: "Edna Mode"Good thread, HBB.

I have several books that I consider essential, including a really good first aid book.

Two new books that I received for Christmas (aren't I pathetic?) are:

Wilderness Medicine Beyond First Aid by William W. Forgey, M.D. and the one NP1 mentioned, Where There Is No Doctor a Village Health Care Handbook by David Werner, Carol Thuman and Jane Maxwell.

-snip-

Both books include information on not only on what you should have but how to dose and treat for many conditions, as well as contraindications of the medications and treatments. I highly, highly recommend both.

:arrow: "Lake Effect"I'd suggest the Merck Manual Home Edition. It is a very helpful resource to have around. Inexpensive on Amazon, or you can find the whole thing online for free at:

You can also view the professional edition

:arrow: "EMTim"I like Lippincott's Nursing Drug Guide as a good guide to drugs.

The first link is to the Military First Aid Book

FREE First Aid Manual-Download PDF FIle

Image Hat Tip to 'Food Storage Made Easy' for this link:

http://foodstoragemadeeasy.net/2011/07/ ... paredness/

Download a FREE First Aid Manual
WikiBooks has an extensive section on first aid that has been put together by numerous sources. The online version is great but we don’t want to be counting on having computer access in an emergency. You can PRINT the entire WikiBook by downloading THIS PDF. It’s over 100 pages but it’s mostly black and white and can be printed double-sided.
