    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...

    These are great bunch of guys. They are in Michigan City, IN and when I first learned of their shop I had to stop in to check it out. Mistake. They have all sorts of stuff for the survival / self reliance minded person like myself. The first thing I bought from them was a new Bug Out Bag...

    Hello all, Just starting to put together a BOB for myself. This is going to be actually used and tested by me. It will be for bugging out of a large city location, but also work for camping/staying in Kentucky woods/forest. Anyway looking for the best first aid kit for the price. Not too big...

    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...
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I am too lazy to go out and buy all the random things I need for a first aid kit, so I am wondering what is the best pre-made first aid kit on the market, that is small enough to fit in a bugout bag? Thanks.

    So I already know that monofiliment fishing line sterilized with alcohol can be used for sutures, but my next issue is Lidocaine for numbing the patient's injured area. I know we can get antibiotics online, but does anybody have any ideas for lidocaine and what strength would be best..i.e...12%...

    my pc is freaking out over links and won't play videos right now...so here is what I need... What kinds of items do I need in a more-than-basic first aid kit. I have one of those ready-mades, but am looking into getting more extensive training (mainly by reading as budget is SUPER limited)...
