  1. 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...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Many use cayenne to spice up their food to eat. But not that many know that it is an invaluable first aid item. Uses for Cayene Applied topically to stop bleeding ** Taken internally for bleeding (WWI Soldiers carried in their uniform in case they were injured and bleeding) Can mix it...

    Green Swamp Tactical is proud to offer the latest in our survival medical equipment offerings. This is the latest in emergency trauma equipment. This tourniquet can effectively stop bleeding in 1/10 the time of the standard CAT tourniquet. While I could try to convince you with words, I will let...
  4. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    The majority of us around here (survivalistboards) especially those of us who hang out in this sub thread are more medically savvy than the average 1st/CPR provider. I read an article the other day about an EMD dispatcher who, either didn't have knowledge, followed outdated protocols, or was...

    I recently found a great book on Amazon.com called Trauma Care for the Worst Case Scenario by Gunner Morgan. If you are a survivalist, prepper, or shooter this is a good book to have in your collection. You can get it at: Amazon.com: Trauma Care for the Worst Case Scenario eBook: Gunner Morgan...
  6. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    So I finally got around to rebuilding my first aid kit, and am looking for input. It's meant to be an IFAK style kit for myself and possible others within a group. The carrier is a "rip away" style pouch (the mounting kit for my patrol belt is shown but the kit can be mounted on a regular...
  7. General Discussion
    I may have the opportunity to become a Sheriff Deputy this summer and I've been thinking long and hard about sidearms. It's the department's policy to carry at least one backup gun in addition to the primary. I plan on carrying my primary (probably a Glock 19) in a strong side holster in both...
  8. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    After using Betadine and Sulfa on deep-tissue wounds on horses, I've become convinced it's just about a cure-all for keeping wounds clean and allowing them to heal from the inside-out. I used Betadine straight from a (very outdated) bottle for twice-daily cleaning of a five-inch-deep abscess...
  9. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Hello All, Im trying to finish up my 5 Trauma Kits (2 Bags, 2 Cars, & 1 Home). Money is tight and I cannot afford SOF or CAT tourniquets, only TK4s or maybe SWAT-Ts at best. I know Israelis can be used as tourniquets, as well as primary use as pressure dressings, so should I just get more of...

  11. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    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...
