I’ve been reading through David Dary’s book Frontier Medicine as research for this blog and came across an interesting list of what it might cost for certain medical treatments. I found these to be fairly expensive in light of what a family might earn. Take a look.
Traveling more than 18 miles
Tincture per oz
Blisters to ankles and wrists
Administration fee for therapy
Curing gonorrhea/venereal disease
Reducing Kneecap Dislocation
What do you think of these costs and what a family might make?
One thought on “Cost of Medical Care on the Frontier”
I think I might need this book!!
