Second to making sure you know and are trained in CPR – Having a med kit of some kind can really save a life.
Here are a few thoughts behind our med kit features and design…
It was initially designed by the military as a “battle field med kit” to “stop the bleeding – plug the holes and get the wounded to a safer place to continue treatment”.
Where you could use this small med kit:
- Vehicle – car, truck , motorcycle there are many situations where you may come up on an accident.
- Work Site – from a simple slip, trip or a more serious fall.
- Camping – there are several survival items in the kit and it is easy to add a few more (Space blanket to a glow stick to fire starter)
- Hunting – Stop the bleeding – plug the hole and get to a place for more advanced medical care
- Emergency Response Rescue Team – either at height or in a work site emergency situation
In the emergency rescue situation at height we are asked and tasked to:
- check for the reason for the emergency –
- check for responsiveness –
- possibly stop the bleeding – (How valuable would this kit on your harness be?)
- recognize signs of suspension trauma –
- possibly disentangle –
- possibly transfer patient to a rescue descent system and lower to the ground for further treatment
Here is the basic list of whats in the kit initially:
We have added several important items:
“CAT” or Combat Applied Tourniquet aka Tactical Tourniquet
- Chewable Asprin
- Liquid or capsule Benedril
- Glow sticks
- Hand warmer packet
There you have it….. We have had this design concept around for years and finally found the basic kit and pouch available for a good price. By adding the CAT and a few other items makes this small med kit perfect for so many reasons.
We would really like to hear your thoughts and possible uses or if you have a similar design you would like to share. Let us know.
