    For the first time ever I have to say this: I quit 90 seconds in. Sorry, he’s a “medical professional” or “medical not-quite-professional” but he’s borderline obese? Yeah, that’s like a skinny chef, tattooless tattoo artist or a virgin hooker.

    He doesn’t need to be jacked but FFS, you’re all about medical and you’re 50 (or more) pounds overweight… yeah, no. Just no. If you can’t take care of yourself then I give no f$%&s what you have to say on this topic.

    Great information here. I love the way he knew every item in-depth by looking at the wrapper. Can you put a list together of the items, I have never heard of them but sound very useful to own and use.
    Many thanks,

    I don’t normally keep oral rehydration salts in my every-day field kit, but I do keep them in my disaster medical kit at home. As I see it, the proper place to use oral rehydration salts is in cases of severe diarrhea–and I am not talking about one or two episodes. In cases of prolonged diarrhea, electrolyte imbalances can become severe–and often dietary intake is not sufficient to correct the imbalance. The commercial packets are handy, but rehydration solutions can also be made on the spot, using any one of a number of different recipes.
