Default Trauma/First aid kit



Advertise Here

Greetings,

I am looking on Amazon for a Trauma/First aid kit package that I will add to it.

My goal is to have it fit into that pouch:
I was thinking to start with this one and add another Quickclot, triangle bandage, israeli 6 inch bandage (That one I'll need to get some training on it), add the usual (aspirin, tylenol, bite, tri-antibiotic, etc....)

Anyone has a better choice?

Thank you
P.S.: I got some first aid training but was not able to get combat training for the serious stuff. I read quite much however. The bad thing: I am the vasovagal type hehehehehe

I'll make a couple of suggestions. First of all, consider whether you're building your kit around treating others or yourself. If yourself, look at items (like the Israeli bandages, maybe also the SWAT-T) that can be applied one-handed. Don't forget about burn treatment, eye treatment and even dental issues.

As a possible alternative to the Field Trauma kit you linked, also look at the Adventure Medical Kits "Hunter" version, which includes items to treat gunshot wounds and other "lost in the woods" injuries.

Greetings,

Can't find the hunter version but I think I understand what you mean: first aid kit with Quickclot and tourniquet.

I have in my kart the Quickclot and Israeli bandage 6".

I also thought about that kit and "canibalize it with what I need

Go to elite first aid and see what they have and then find a vendor that can supply your needs. They have a lot of options
