Challenge #02256-F066: First to Aid

A book written by an alien Medic over humans and their needs (physical/emotional/etc) medical "normal" procedures/operations for them, limits of humans (go wild and have fun with this one^^) and what to do with your human if sh*t hits the fan and emergency medical procedures (Bringing him back to life by smashing repeatedly his ribcage and forcing air in, stopping leaks, treating rocket fuel burn( how did he even get this?!?) , etc.)

Other means of coronary stimulation include electronic rhythm induction, though this is preferred to re-establish a rhythm in erratic heartbeats.

Another chapter was dedicated to broken bones. Human bones are difficult to break. What many consider lethal force would only cause relatively mild fractures in sections of a Human skeleton. Humans are capable of operating with broken bones, but that does not mean that they should be allowed to do so. Fractures large and small cause a great amount of pain in Humans. Especially what they refer to as 'green stick' fractures.

Essential Trace Element(s)

Doesn’t it sound so scientific? It sounds like it comes with a free Guy/Gal in a Labcoat to explain in big words and complicated sentences why they are essential and how you can sign up for a special blind trial.

But really, today, I’m talking about silver.

Specifically, colloidal silver.

Colloidal silver is water with a tiny bit of silver in it. You can wiki it if you want to. And it can slowly improve your health
