    Greetings, Spokane County resident here, am wondering if anyone knows any leads on solid medical training in or near Spokane, North Idaho? Even going far as West Montana and Northern Oregon works well too. I am willing to go that far for good and rigorous training as far as medical goes...
  2. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I see many postings here regarding first aid supplies and trauma kits, but fewer that address acute medical or trauma issues. First aid is a learned skill that is best perfected both in the classroom and bedside while providing care. It is not an intuitive skill, or something that should be...
  3. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I have shopped around all over for medical supplies over the years. I was recently tipped off by a friend about the website Mountainside-Medical.com. I truly wish I had found this place years ago. The selection, as well as the prices, are extremely reasonable. Just some examples. All in...

    I am in need of a decent suture kit. I'm not well trained, so I don't need a top tier kit. Something inexpensive, relatively, but still quality would be best. I have noticed Amazon offering a number of "training" kits complete with needles and sutures, as well as fake skin. Is there any reason...

    Ask a Nurse. I know you want to. Really, feel free. I want to help, it is in my nature. I am sure others have the same questions. If you know a nurse or other medical provider you trust then ask them. If you don't, then you can ask me. If I know the answer I will tell you. If I don't know the...

    Does anyone here have any recommendations for both a Bugout as well as a bugIn medical supply stash? Aside from basic first aid, what are the items you keep or store in quantity? What I’m trying to find is those little items with big responsibility that I may be forgetting. I’m open to premade...
  9. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Just as an intro... I had a "traditional" first aid kit (I think I got it from Sportsmans or Cabelas or something) and realized that, while it looked cool and nifty, in this yellow belt loop bag, was mainly a box of 3rd rate chinese specials, with no substance. So I started to do a little...
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I didn't know this existed. I've seen/heard the more common methods of removing ticks over the years but here's a special tool for it that claims to remove it wholly intact every time...
