  1. 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...
  2. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    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...

    This free to download book is a joint effort of about a dozen semi-anonymous medical professionals. Despite the fact that it's self-published and written by amateur writers, it’s the best book I’ve seen dealing with medical care in a SHTF situation. Unlike some of the wilderness medicine books...
  4. Book Reviews
    This is the first book report I've done since Jr. High and boy am I excited. The Survival Medicine Handbook 3rd Ed. is one of the books that often shows up in "must have" lists of prepper books. It's generally well-written and should be accessable to anyone with a high school or higher...
  5. 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...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...
  7. General Discussion
    I could have place this comment in the financial section just as easily as first aid but I decided on general knowledge because this could affect almost anyone. I wear hearing aids because of my age and failing hearing. I have completed a hearing test that shows I have clear levels of hearing...
  8. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I'm looking for a really good, rugged serious first aid kit, not one of these tinker-toy Walmart jobs. I'm talking sutures, clotting agent, proper packaging etc, etc. perhaps even local anesthetic. Any help is appreciated! Regards, --k

    Cadillac Prepares Informal peer led training is being organized on home preparedness for anyone who may have interest about natural and man made disasters. Meetings will take place at a public location once to eventually maybe twice a month an hour or two at a time. One instructor will be...
  10. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I was wondering if anyone else kept basic first aid equipment on their person at all times? I personally carry: x2 4x4 12 ply gauze pads x1 2x2 8 ply gauze pad x3 standard sized band aids I carry these things in a cargo pocket in a small folding note pad thing, like you would see a detective...

    In 2013 three days before christmass I had my own personal shtf or end of my world as I knew it. I tested positive for a genetic aabnormality called lynch syndrome. In a nutshell this means that I am 85% more likely to get cancer than the average person. This is all types of cancer not...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AszqPWV7lw Really cool. Even has a ring cutter on it. glass breaker, seat belt cutter. Also just found this guy's YouTube Channel. Lots of interesting stuff on it.
  13. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    I'm sure you all know most first aid kits are basically a couple of band-aids, aspirin, and bacatracin ointment. I've been trying to put together a medical kit, both for travel and emergencies. This topic has, I'm sure, been talked to death. But hear me out here. I think that for usual uses...
  14. Urban Survival
    I have this kit in the get-home bag (GHB) in the back of my car, but it's possible that I can't get back to my car in the event of an earthquake or other. My work backpack has several EDC items, but no small medical kit. Recommendations?
  15. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I am looking at working out how to make penicillin. My thought is that having the ability to continually supply medicine might, might be a great capability should it somehow become unavailable. Best article I've found Here Although I am aware there are a number of sites that give rough...

    Made a video on my DIY Budget Medical Kit. I feel like its missing some supplies but I'm not exactly sure what. Please let me know what you think
  17. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Hello all, I have a question about inhalers. I am surrounded by loved ones with Asthma (Girlfriend, brother, mother, and best friend), and I often exercise and hike with my girlfriend. She never carries her inhaler, so I would like to throw one in my medical pouch in my EDC bag (Which is also my...

    An episode of "House" where a man with a failing liver was connected intravenously to a pig to filter his blood got me to thinking. Why is this not done routinely for dialysis and/or anemia and/or diabetic insulin dependent patients? Especially after SHTF? I can imagine a much better quality...

    This is the most extensive and comprehensive collection of "free" information I've ever seen. Literally gigs and gigs of info. I believe the people who put it out are with the Peace Corp or some similar group. The info is geared toward 3rd world countries. Enjoy! :thumb...
