    YOu never know when you are going to need it.



    Whether it's a bomb blast, car crash or natural disaster, medical treatment always seems to be necessary early in an emergency situation - just when it's hardest to come by. But with education, you can provide the first aid you or those close to you need. Captain Dave recommends reading and taking classes (such as those offered by the Red Cross and some EMT programs) on first aid and becoming a first responder

    Who needs classes? If someone is injured, all you need to do is jab a rubber tube into their throat to drain the blood. Works every time!

    I learned it on Discovery Health!

    It's an excellent network, and I used to watch it regularly.

    Now that I live next to a hospital, and am there nearly every day, the channel has understandably lost some of its draw. If any of these upcoming interviews go well, I'll be spending roughly 60 hours a week there...

    *fingers crossed*

    I am a retired Navy Chief Hospital Corpsman. There isn't any medical condition you can't treat with just bandaids and aspirin. Anything more is a waste of resourses and education.
