  1. Some may be tempted to ignore the advice to keep notes about the day, time, & dosage. But when one is in pain, the mind becomes fogged, events run together, & it’s easy to confuse the time & dose. Then the notes become critical.

  2. 1) If things turn really bad, then people will need anesthesia as well as analesia. During the Civil War, amputations (and fraction reductions?) were done with ether, which can be synthesized from drinking alcohol and sulfuric acid. Before the development of effective antibiotics, Amputations were a more common treatment for gunshot wounds to the limbs– to avoid lethal gangrene.



    2) Opium poppy seeds are widely available in garden catalogs (except in West Virginia). Extraction of opium from the flower buds, however, is obviously very illegal in today’s world. Laudanum, the standard painkiller for many centuries, was opium dissolved in drinking alcohol. Wiki says it was also used to suppress the deadly diarrhea of cholera and dysentery.


    3) Doctors have become very specialized and dependent upon an intricate supply chain that might collapse in a major prolonged catastrophe. For the shorter term (< 1 year?) , the federal government does have huge stockpiles of medical supplies–the Strategic National Stockpile:


      1. YOu do NOT drink sulfuric acid — or diethyl ether either. Ether used to be used in surgery by placing a wire funnel wrapped in gauze over the patients nose and adding drops of ether to the gauze to be inhaled by the patient –in order to bring on unconsciousness.

        Obviously anesthesia is best administered by a doctor , who monitors blood pressure, heart beat, pulse rate etc. in order to strike the right balance between too little and too much.

  3. Keep the patient warm. But also what helps for pain or nausea is a wrung out cold washcloth on the forehead. Keep refreshing it as the cloth loses its chill.

  4. I mentioned in replying to the first in this series that I get migraines. I have found that sometimes, low moaning or humming can help me get enough past the pain to be able to get to sleep. I think it sets up useful vibrations in my skull bones that for some reason help soothe the pounding. I have never tested this with any other type of pain, though.
