read cody ludin's "98.6 keeping your ass alive" its a good start not nessicarly telling you what you need to have but to knid of getting the gears ticking in yourhead as a guidline on what you need. never go over your medical traing if your just a guy with basic knowledge of bandaids and small patch work dont carry a surgigical kit. ive seen so many dumba** carrying field hospitals and they cant even name half the equipment in the pack but itt looks cool. and someone in need of medical attetion will come running to you because you look like a doctor with all the medical stuff. and also kits think about it if someone has a reason to make money by selling these first aid kits the crap is proably gona be el cheapo that wont work or hold up. now there a good start but i wont rely on one. go to a drug store such as walgreens or cvs. and grab things you know how to use. keep it simple and dont over think it. if you want a good list for basic guys such as myself PM me and ill send you pics and a list of what i carry that covers everything i can handle.

What exactly is this kit for? My suggestion, carry two separate kits. One bag with general purpose items, meds, gauze, band-aids, ointments, irrigation soloution, etc. Then another small pouch for your belt/vest, have some gauze pads, NPA, Decomp Needle, Combat Gauze, Bolin Chest seal or petroleum gauze, duct tape, tourniquet. And go get some training, most cities have Red Cross first aid classes, ranging from general first aid/CPR to first responder courses.

plus whatever else I should buy separately that is not included? My primary concerns would be managing severe wounds (cuts or bullet), burns, frost bite, and then your regular wounds. If someone has a very wide-use kit I would greatly appreciate it, but like I said, it would be nice if the majority of the kit can be bought together. I will also have dogs with me and would appreciate any recommendations for that as well. Is there anything that you can easily feed a dog that will induce vomiting (if they eat poison)?

THANKS

As far as a first aid kit goes, it needs to be tailored to your particular situation and the needs of your group. Another concern is the level of training you have. It does you no good to have medications and medical supplies in your kit that you nor anyone else in your group knows how to or is qualified to use.

If you don't have the training already, get with your local LEPC or the Red Cross. They offer some great First Responder / First Aid classes. Attending these classes will also give you a good idea of what you will want to include in your own kit. Another advantage is that you may get to meet a Nurse or an EMT or Paramedic that is teaching the class that may want to become part of your group. And that is something that is worth alot and that you can't buy.
He's correct, where exactly are you planning on using this.

That might help you decide what kinds of stuff you need to be prepped and ready with.

It seems to me he was commenting about people who carry giant medical packs just because it looks cool.

Buying a large medical pack cost a lot of money. I believe people with that kind of equipment and supplies are most likely in the medical field or are in school getting proper training.A mall ninja isn't going to buy this type stuff to look cool.He or she would be to busy buying accessories for their mall ninja toys.A cheap thrown together military copy of a medical kit is what they would most likely select. Professional medical back packs are big bucks.If someone would spend that kind of money in medical supplies you would think would be seeking out some kind of professional training.

I appreciate all of the replies :D

I have decided to make two kits from scratch. One to attach to my bag with non-emergency items, and another for my belt for "life/death" items. I have already ordered:

http://www.voodootactical.net/p-195-...dical-kit.aspx

and

http://www.voodootactical.net/p-20-e...yment-bag.aspx

Once I receive them (next few days) I'm going to fine-tune my list of items to respect the available space. I will have a lot of first aid supplies, but I really have a INCH bag as I am already in the safest location I have access to. I wouldn't need as much if I was planning on just coming home.

I lol'd and agree with the comments about having flashy gear/attracting attention. That's why I opted for the olive drab than the bright red with white cross color scheme. Once I get the bags I'll post my supply list to get some advice before I buy.

Thumbs up

When you put together a First Aid kit remember to include a product like Burn Gel for burns...If you look in your local yellow pages for medical supply places they have some products that can't be found at your local mart........
