One thing not mentioned but important to keep in mind -- white granulated sugar for weepy or infected wounds (not for use on a bleeding wound).

Sugar is a desiccate, it dries out the wound and as a result kills bacteria. It can be stored indefinitely because bacteria cannot survive, much less grow in it. Sugar is starting to be used in hospitals to heal stubborn wounds on diabetics.

It's funny how things fall in and out of favor. We used sugar 20 years ago, then it was deemed unsanitary, and pharmaceuticals took its place. Now the pendulum Is swinging the other way.

Note: you will likely need to be doing a dry bag, a wet bag and a fridge bag..

Not all drugs you use will be suitable for out side of a fridge type storage solution...

Basic surgical kit
Enough medical gaus to treat you and the people with you......

Note: go and look at a emergency kit then look at what it comes with, check if it is suitable for short term use or suitable for moderate use or suitable for heavy use where you must change dressings on a constant basis..

From what I have seen with basic first aid packs most are passible as a short term use item, when it comes to short, medium or long term wound care they are not likely going to be as suitable as a proper medical bag will be.

I come from this conclusion dealing with wound care for over 30 years.

Before someone. Asks no I'm not in the nursing profession or have any medical degree, with the association of watching family members being served by the likes of silver chain and Stanhope and looking at their care plans.
I came to the conclusion having spent time as a Live-in carer for over 10 years that in an emergency you will need to be well stocked in medical supplies.

I say this because you could get into a situation of having to provide medical aid for an extended period of time and the reality is you could be without access to medical professional for days, weeks or months al the point you will likely need to have access to a great deal of things to promote healing.
I would also consider of having a medical dossier either by paper or by laptop so you can show someone what you have done and what drugs the person also takes will be a help.

Whether it be a field hospital or not reality is you are likely to be without Medical assistance for a while and you would require some form of medical aid to prolong your life if injured..

HI Folks! This is a list from our Survival Medicine Handbook (third edition, May 2016). It is our updated list from our second edition book, which is much more extensive than the supply list I posted earlier. The post was meant as home supplies, not for the Field Hospital or personal carry. I have provided you the entire list straight out of our new book so you can have it asap. I know there will be something I left out, but I feel really good about the list.
Jerry's lists from Raynor's books are excellent also! Raynor was a real pioneer in providing all of us with a real grasp on where to begin when accumulating medical supplies. Thanks Jerry for sharing them here. We all need to help each other become more medically prepared. It is a TEAM effort! Be safe, Nurse Amy

Raw honey is probably the best wound healer I've ever found, started using it on horses years ago and the last couple years on myself, hardly a scar visible. And lemme say, sutures may be invasive and prone to infection in the bad lands, BUT, at least ya don't hafta use both hands to shove a needle through human skin like ya do with a horse or cow, lol. If ya clean (scrub) the wound well before suturing and then cover it with raw honey, bandage well, eat ur garlic, there's a very good recovery rate if there's no hospital available.

1 thing I will caution before you stick anything within your med kit you will to check to see if anyone is allergic to anything within the medical kit before you deploy it because somethings can make things worse to the person, so be sure you do a dry run 1st...
