Merck Manual ~ Surviving Evil Psycho Slashers since 1899

by Erik

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Survivability against Evil Demonic Psycho Slashers is not guaranteed with the use of the Merck Manual app. I would also recommended a large ax and several gullible friends.

So you are enjoying a lovely summer evening at Camp Crystal Lake. You and your friends are basking in the warm summer air, living life, having a snack, perhaps partaking in some fine wine and having fun in each other’s company. 7 hours, two pitchforks and a machete later, you are in serious need of some first aid. You managed to get a call out on the ancient landline before the lines were cut, so you know help is on the way.

But you need first aid now if you are going to make it until they arrive. You try to look up anything on your phone, but you have no signal. This place was shut down long before Wi-Fi and you are too far out to get a cell signal. If only you had an app that could reveal the best way to stop demonic psycho slashers you could have avoided this situation to begin with. Failing that, if only you had an app that didn’t need an internet connection to give you life-saving first aid advice. You’re sorry about all your friends of course, but you need to focus on keeping the body count at 7 (plus one evil demonic psycho slasher) not 8 (plus one evil demonic psycho slasher).

First you have to stop the bleeding

Then you have to watch out for shock. Hopefully the sheriff shows up soon.

Ok, so maybe that is a not realistic situation that you expect to find yourself in. Here, let’s make it simple. Have you ever been sick? Or ever wondered “what is that weird pain I just felt in my shoulder?” If the answer is no, then go away, I don’t like you.

However, if the answer is yes, then I may have something that just might interest you. What if there was an app you could install on your phone that could give you answers to common medical questions without needing an internet connection. No more worrying about whether your signal was strong enough or you were allowed to use the internet (we’ve all seen those signs about use of cellular devices blah blah blah). An app that could explain to you, in plain terms, using graphics and video and real words (not jargon) you can understand.

Well guess what? There is. For over 100 years Merck Manuals have provided professionals and consumers with the most comprehensive medical information available. And now they have distilled that knowledge and expertise into an app. Download the app, For Free. It will then download a library of information onto your phone, that you can access at any time. Internet connection or no, for Free. By free I mean No Advertisements either. And you don’t have to register for anything. And they aren’t secretly collecting any personal information about you

Download the app today (for free) for either iOS or Android today. It won’t stop the evil demonic psycho slasher, but just maybe it will help you survive it.

About The Merck Manual:

First published in 1899 as a small reference book for physicians and pharmacists, The Merck Manual grew in size and scope to become one of the world’s most widely used comprehensive medical resources for professionals and consumers. As The Manual evolved, it continually expanded the reach and depth of its offerings to reflect the mission of providing the best medical information to a wide cross-section of users, including medical professionals and students, veterinarians and veterinary students, and consumers.

In 2015, The Merck Manual and MSD Manual kicked off Global Medical Knowledge 2020, a program to make the best current medical information accessible by up to three billion professionals and patients around the world by 2020.

This sounds like such a good app that everyone should have! Particularly if you like to go camping or hiking and run the risk of injuring yourself outside of Internet zones. Thanks for introducing me to it!

That sounds like a handy book to have around. I hope I don't run into any evil slashers anytime soon, though.

I'll take a look at this app! I haven't been camping in forever but it can still be helpful

Glad to know an app that can be used even without internet connection, like Merck Manual where we can have a life-saving first aid advice that can be able to save lives.

I had one of these manuals before but I guess I have to get the app. There may have been a lot of updates on the topics and I have to stay abreast on how to address some common illnesses and to do first aid.

HAHA! I love it! I have been using the Merck manual for years, but never to save me from evil slashers. Now I know another great way to use it ;)

I didn't hear about the Merck Manual before but I think it's a great idea to make it digitally. And it's even better that it works without internet, as most of the times when you get injured you probably are in an area without coverage.

This sounds like such a good app I need! I love to go camping or hiking!
