  1. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Hey all. I'm still a prepper on a very low budget. Recently, I used up the last single-dose packets of ibuprofen and acetaminophen in my EDC FAK. Refills of the said packs are pretty pricey ($10-$15, depending on the kind, for ~100 tablets.). I've seen some people just purchase the bulk...

    I was just about to go out and buy some supplies for my IFAK when I remembered this FAK that I bought a couple of years ago from a Roofing supplier online. So I climbed into my attic and started digging around and pulled it out. The supplier had this First Aid Kit on sale. I looked at it and...

    In looking for a First Aid Kit, I've come across of a ton of pre-packaged kits that look like they try to cover every conceivable circumstance that can be handled within the parameters of that particular kit (dependent on size/budget of course). The AOL Basic Kit I picked up is full of stuff...

    I have tried finding a thread with specific information about medical supplies, but to no avail. The medical kit portion of my BOB is severely lacking. Can anyone recommend a bulk kit, like Amazon.com: Adventure Medical Kits Outfitter Kit: Health & Personal Care plus whatever else I should...

    I guess I'm a little disgusted. I have several very nice trauma kits and FAKs in the house, but I was running to the ER last night at 11 when my 2 y/o stuck a bead in her ear. I have the knowledge and equipment to stabilize a sucking chest wound, but I couldn't get the bead out. It's easy to...

    Has anyone any experience of individual combat medical kits such as the one below? http://www.cavalrymanufacturing.com/medical/ICMK.html Any good? Does anyone know how long the chemicals in such a kit would last? Thanks

    -- Before you guys bash me about how crappy the pouch is, let me say this in my defense :P I've used that pouch for years for first aid use and it's about to retire. I AM getting a new trauma pouch soon, and pictures will be posted when that time comes. This pouch comes with me when my...

    My FAK Just a note, I posted this on several other forums to which I am a member. Sorry if this is a repeat. This kit is designed to be attached to my Bug Out Bag and used for injuries sustained to myself or others WTSHTF. I placed an emphasis on OTC medications as these will most likely be...

    My son and I are going to put together a 1st aid bag and was looking for ideas. We're thinking maybe a M3 Medic bag. Has anyone used one of these and are they any good? And suggestions for what to use? We're wanting just the bag as we will fill it later. Thanks, Joe

    Hey everybody. I went swimming the other day at my friend's house, and as I was about to dive, the concrete on the sides of the pool gave me a bloody, dime-sized scrape on the top of my foot. It's been about three days, and it's red around the area, and has some drainage. In the middle, where...
