    LOL, I'm chuckling over the Euros and Canucks crying that Trump is keeping medical supplies at home. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-masks/u-s-coronavirus-supply-spree-sparks-outrage-among-allies-idUSKBN21L253...

    Wanted to pick your brains about sources for bulk medical supplies, online is better. To date, I have raided the Walmart bins and dollar stores for topical, rubbing / isopropal alcohol, lots of triple antibiotic tubes, etc. Decent start but that's it, starting blocks. Much further along on...

    What surgical suture kits are yall stockpiling? I am looking to buy some full suture kits where all I have to do is open it up and everything is there ready to go, and some spare sutures.

    One thing I'm missing in my preps is a good sucher kit. I do have a lot of other medical supplies but I have no way of stitching a wound if need be. Anyone have any kits they recommend and where to purchase from? My apologies if this is posted on the wrong forum. Just figured it was about as...

    The one aspect of my preps that I feel very unprepared in is my medical supplies. I have some of the basics including antibiotics, but I know this is not nearly enough. Would love to hear your thoughts on a list of vital medical supplies and were to get them. I also have 3 young children, as I...

    Does anyone know any websites/shops in the uk that sell suture kits? Tried williammedical but there all bulk buy.

    Seems like there's never ending discussion on this subject so I checked in with Chinook's Director of Product Development. Here's what he had to say about the advantages and benefits of both, and how they're different. Quikclot, QC Advantages - Huge choice of options for many levels of health...

    I cut my foot pretty good this weekend. It's about 1.25 long and .25 wide right on the pad of my foot. That's what I get for drinking without shoes on... I know better than that. Anyway, I couldn't find any bandages big enough in the medicine cabinet and had stocked up on a bunch of first aid...

    Not to steal the fire from any other First Aid Kit threads, but i want to talk about minimalist ones. Least ammount of gear possible. I used to carry around a little bag that had all of the doo dads and whatnots that "should" be in a FAK, but I wanted to scale it down. I have recently started...

    Ok so I’ve been doing a lot of research about first aid, as well as taking classes and asking questions on here. I also been asking questions on what works and what doesn’t work. I’m kind of getting annoyed with the whole, do this then do that, then go get help, or seek medical attention at...

    I've currently been looking at first aid gear for a SHTF scenario and this pack caught my eye. I was hoping you could look at it and give a professional opinion of it. Please and Thank You. http://www.survival-supply.com/stomp-medic-p-5568.html

    Thought I would start a thread about all the uncommon stuff you can use in a first aid kit to save money or deal with specific problems. Mine is feminine hygiene products... Tampons in the applicator are easily inserted into the chest cavity in the event of a GSW or other type of "sucking...

    I'm almost through with paramedic school and will be the lone "medical professional" in my group when the SHTF scenario arrives. We all have assigned some roles as far as stockpiling supplies and one of my roles will be assembling a medical bag and medical supplies. This wont be used as some...

    A few weeks ago I was talking to a friend and they brought up a good point. He said you should always keep a very basic first aid book / guide in your first aid kit. I asked why, after all I know how to use all of the supplies I keep in my first aid kit. Ah but what if you're the one that gets...

    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 a large alice pack that i got for christmas from a friend and am now using it as my bug out bag. But its so large that the things i have in it dont even take up a fourth of the room. I have cooking, shelter, water, fire, tools, and food procurement as well as camouflaging covered as well...

    These are bags you can setup, to be grabbed and thrown into a car in a SHTF Emergency. I got most of these things on Amazon over a period of time. They sell everything the cheapest, with extremely quick shipping. Feel free to add suggestions. And heres a video of BOB (Bug Out Bag) Basics...

    This may need to be moved as it is a general and First aid question. Well my friend and I are at a little war kind of.Its all over what would be better a prepacked Firstaid kit or a make your own. Here is a list of a M3 medic kit from Budk.com FIRST AID KIT 1 EFA - First Aid Instructions 1...
