Medical supplies will be in short supply in a SHTF moment. Hospitals generally do not have a massive stock of medication or supplies on hand, and they will run out quickly if the situation is dire enough.
That means you should have on hand an essential stock of medications for use in the aftermath of a SHTF moment, and you also must consider alternative medication where it is applicable.
For example, keeping an ample supply of hydrogen peroxide in stock is a key component of any survival first aid kit as it can perform so many different medical functions, from disinfecting wounds to helping with certain breathing ailments.
The trick is knowing what to stockpile, and how much to have on hand and on the next page we cover some of the basics.
