Desert Medicine

In this explore, we explore the austere desert environment, how to survive in unfavourable conditions and – to ensure we get our sunshine fix – we explore and unpack some of the key skills and lessons learnt from the Desert Medicine course run in the OBO Desert Centre in Oman.

In this wide-ranging conversation we explore the following concepts:
– Heat illness (Heat exhaustion and heat stroke)
– Hydration and self-care in the desert
– Navigating in the desert environment
– Medical considerations in the desert
– Some of the indigenous animals you can find in the wild
– Foot care & minor injuries in the desert
