Surviving in the Wild – Justin Hensley

Summary by: Rosy Wang

You don’t have to be Bear Grylls to stay alive in the wild. Remember the rule of three – you can live 3 minutes without air, 3 hours without shelter, 3 days without water and 3 weeks without food.

The two biggest killers in the wild are cold and heat. Justin discusses the physiology of our body’s responses to cold and heat and the pathophysiology of hypo- and hyperthermia. He also talks about the simple of ways of preventing cold and heat injury, including staying dry, adding layers, drink any water you can get your hands on – just not sea water.

Lastly – don’t panic.
