Not until Surgery Tray items do I see suction really come up.

Do you think stiff or and/soft catheters would be useful additions, perhaps ones I could attach to a syringe? What about a bulb syringe? Or does this stuff just not really get used enough?

I'm just a EMR student at this point with no real world experience to speak of so I value your input.

While I think what is side is more than likely overkill for practical use..

I say after living with someone that had a constant wound dependency i would nothing more than a field surgical kit is a mandatory inclusion and have enough to commit 1st aid for a number of days per person within your group.

As you will be without days without medical assistance I would also see if your local hospital has some sort of triage based training because if there is I be putting everyone within the family unit through the course... Failing that you might face issues...

Because in an emergency you will have issues..

I would also have something to takes notes for treatment with including a laptop...

You will need to document what you have done within your limited capacities so if you get to a doctor eventually they will know what has been done...

Have enough of a capacity cover and close a wound....

Great list, thank you. I would like to add Bentonite clay to make a thick paste with water for Mosquito bites, poison ivy, nettles, etc. It may work for stings but I haven't had any to test it on, luckily. It also makes a good natural tooth powder mixed with a little baking soda, cinnamon, and clove powder. A small baggie of the clay is light weight and goes a long ways.

Also, we use tea tree oil for all minor cuts and cat scratches, but it should not be covered with a band aid. It seems to eat up the skin if covered tightly.

You can use a turkey baster for suction. Just get some cheap $1 basters and toss after use. I am an EMR working full time as a firefighter also and that is what I use. BTW when asked out EMR instructor said to use the basters.

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
Thank you!

But I am not sure who Raynor is. I developed the list I posted over many years of research. I do not remember Raynor as a source, but my memory is none too good.

Thank you for all your hard work and sharing it with us.

Just my opinion.

Great list and thanks! I took their suture class a few years ago. I highly recommend it to anyone interested. I'm a paramedic, but you don't have to have that level of training to take away useful information and skills from the class.

I agree this is a great thread with a very comprehensive list. As for triage training I read that most cities have a SERT team to respond to large scale emergencies that is mostly volunteer, but they provide some training. I am new to the forum here, but I'm an ER nurse and I have never seen hospitals offer that training to civilians. But that being said it doesn't hurt to ask. You may consider acquiring hazmat/Decon training somewhere as well. It will provide information concerning setting up and maintaining hot and cold zones properly to reduce cross contamination during dirty bomb, chemical attack, pandemic scenarios..

P-95 masks work better for blood and fluids air born matter than the n95's.
The n-95's are for dust.

When designing the field kit always short, medium and long term wound care in mind reality in an emergency it can be days, weeks or months being able to access to a quack to repair..

Something to consider if you front a ed at the local hospital it well be days before you get seen

Default tooth ache

Ora-Jel, I recently woke in the middle of the night with a tooth that had abscessed. I didn't have anything at home to use so I had to drive to town in the middle of the night, (I live out in the country) to find a convenience store. I gladly paid $5 for a little tube, probably would have paid $20. I realize you can use the clove oil for tooth aches but Ora-Jel is a quick fix and can be used as a local anesthetic in a bind. Just a thought. (think about the movie Castaway, Tom Hanks would have killed for some.)
