    Every so often we yanked a few Marines after everybody else was full up & left -- once we grabbed the stragglers -- after enough altitude -- mostly using my pre-cut lengths of paracord -- just tying tourniquet & plugging holes --

    I wasn't trained for med stuff -- but I got a lot of on the job experience --

    I have looked at a lot of pre-stocked kits for anything from IFAK to complete EMT kits. None of them have all the stuff I want and usually have some pretty horrible trinkets and other stuff I don't want to pack around.

    My suggestion for the non medical folks is to find an EMT in a rural service or a volunteer service. Once they have a little time under their belt, they can tell you what you need right away and what can wait. My thoughts behind finding an EMT is that if you look to a paramedic- they are going to have all kinds of high level gear, both in price and in experienced provider usage. The second part is that these guys carry these bags around all the time, they aren't going to carry a lot of useless stuff or tell you to carry it. They have the stuff that is going to save lives and be durable as an ambulance usually isn't right around the corner.

    As always, this is my opinion and although a very good opinion, is just my opinion.

    Again --

    This just came --

    http://www.shopmedvet.com/product/92966



    Qualty of the tools looks to be OK - but the pouch looks like a pair of patent leather pimp shoes -- and theres only one 4-0 30" length of mono-filament -- I'll order a few shorter ones --

    And I found a 10cc blunt syringe - I use for epoxy -- that's good enough for a basic asperater ?

    I see it already -- "I should have gotten a bigger bag" --

    And a C.A.T.-7 should be here today also ?

    You need a smallish kit that you keep on your person, an "IFAK" and then a larger "jump bag" to keep nearby in a car or office. The IFAK is for YOU, and the jump bag is to help others.

    Ricekila,

    The comment about the should have gotten a bigger bag? What most folks don't get is that to stop the bleed actually doesn't take a big bag full of stuff. To stop the bleed, apply gauze and direct pressure, apply more gauze and more pressure, apply tourniquet. A couple of packages of gauze (with Celotex or equivalent) an Israeli bandage and a tourniquet is really all you should need in a stop bleed kit. If you are going into a combat situation, two sets would be better than one, but to have an "at hand" kit sitting on the bench, that should be all you really need. Like Talon says, the jump size kit in the pickup is for when you have multiple folks hit, other injuries, and stays in the pickup. You will eventually stop carrying the big bag to the bench anyhow. The Stop Bleed doesn't take an extra trip so you would be more likely to take it, hook it to a case/ammo box or put it on your belt.
