I can answer questions on first aid. (Specifically treatment at time of injury.) Since first aid occurs at time of injury, post injury care and complications are frequently outside my expertise. Please keep in mind I am NOT a doctor. I cannot diagnose, recommend medications or confirm medication conflicts. Several people request information regarding a novel they are writing. This usually involves information that I cannot provide. Keep this in mind before asking. If I do not feel qualified to answer your question, I will certainly suggest you contact a more suitable 'expert'. Sign Language response available.
