As medical pats we often focus on training and equipping for the battle, but what about in between conflicts? A raging case of diarrhea will take a man out of the fight just as being injured during battle. Hygiene in the field can be difficult, but is of utmost importance for maintaining the health of each teammate. Learning how to live in the field and stay healthy, I believe, should be a primary training point. Conditions such as hypothermia, hyperthermia, cuts, scraps, dermatitis, infection, etc. can be devastating if not properly managed. I am interested to hear what you have done to prevent and/or manage ailments from living in the field, what works, what doesn’t work, etc. How do you educate your men? Again, what works, and what doesn’t work. I met with resistance from a few of my fellow tribesmen while trying to educate them, due primarily I believe by intimidation. There is a lot to medicine and it can be overwhelming to those of us who work in the field. Twice as bad for those who have no medical training. Your thoughts?
