This is more for health care professionals...
EMT's, Paramedics, Military Medics, Dr.'s, Nurses, First Responders, SAR...
What do you carry in your jump bags? What, beyond the typical first aid kit bandaids and bactine do you have with you (I assume usually in your vehicle, home or work)? I am trying to find a healthy medium between the kitchen sink and alcohol swabs...does anyone carry airways, IV's, BVM's, etc...?
If possible it would be great to see photos of your kits. I followed the lead of my EMT school and actually bought a Bass Pro Shops soft side tackle box...inside you can fill it with the plastic boxes for organizing, however I haven't stocked it with anything, and as a Basic my scope of practice is somewhat limited...But what do you have?

In mine I got normal bandages of all sizes. Also triangle bandages and splints for breaks. We also carry O2, plus I have c-collars for accidents. Most meds can't be carried off the job. So unless you steal or are a doc, can't have the meds. Of course, in a SHTF, who cares about that.

I keep full stock of BLS supplies, + advanced airway supplies, IV supplies, sutures and minor surgery supplies, and assorted medications, several antibiotics both PO and IV as well as drugs such as multi dose epi, multi dose benadryl, Solu-Medrol, promethazine, torodol, 2% lidocane, atropine and 2-pam chloride. I also carry APAP, ibuprofen, pepto tabs, Imodium AD and several other OTC drugs....

When you know a like minded doc who also preps, if they trust you they'll write you whatever you need......I have an RX sticker across all my Rx meds w/ my name on it....now the pharmacist looked at me a little funny, but oh well...

Also to add to the last poster, some areas let medics carry full bags off duty, I have one (on top of my personal bag) and also have a semi automatic defib and o2 supplies in my trunk thanks to work. Around here as long as were within the county we have full medical authorization to do what we normally would from our medical control as long as the individual is going to be transported to the ER.

Me too! OK, maybe a bit too restrictive...I imagine there are many folks that have the knowledge to use more than bandaids...so let's see them, people! you roll up on an accident...whatcha got?:D:

This is a bag my brother and I worked on. It's a MOLLE pack I picked up at CTD locally.

My Father was a FF/Paramedic for around 25 years and my brother is working on his Paramedic this year. I am hoping to find a course to get my EMT-B soon as well.

Those are all great. I am about to re-do my first aid kit; first aid going into the molle assault pack and it's current stuff (BOB) going into a small ALICE pack...

Picked up a few rolls of small gauze, a couple fat rolls, some 4x4 pads, a box of alcohol wipes, and some tape the last couple days at the dollar store...getting ready to put my bag together.

--Has anyone seen the Stomp II bag that a guy "put together" on Zombie Squad? It's really unbelievable...and I mean UNBELIEVABLE. I don't even think he's an EMT-B and he has ALS stuff, IV's and even meds like morphine. I'll try to shanghai his pics and post some here...but for now it's bedtime!:sleep:

I don't see a BVM for the King air way. Even if you could use advanced air way procedures for somebody what would the point be, they are usually dead when they are applied. Use the money and the space for more usefull items.

5th pic down is the BVM in a green bag. I've sensed replaced it with a different one. the NAR was a pretty cheap product.
I got three of them pretty cheap but the whole thing smells really bad to breath with, not that that matters but the Ambu is made a lot better just a lot of space. It will fit in a utility pouch so I think it's going outside the bag soon.
The CT-6 traction splint is pretty cool but I left it out of the pics.





but yeah the BVM and king are a waste of space probably. this is my third bag and its the biggest, I like the new M9 bag a little better but its about 1/3 the volume.
