Default Bag O Medical

I know CPR and a few other necessities, and I have a typical first aid kit. I want to find or make up a kit for injuries that are more serious than a cut finger. I have gotten some info from the forum and gone on line. I find kits rangeing from $40 to $400. I have no idea what the some of the contents are. If I need it all. What's essential. Shelf life. And so on.
Is there a resource recommended by you folks with experience.
Thanks!

I'm currently taking a medical person in charge course.

You need to consider what this kits for. You can't give out medications to people, and you can get in trouble trying to play doc, in the current world.
If you're talking EOTWAWKI, different story I guess.

1st. SCENE SAFETY! Say it ten times. Protect yourself. Get gloves, face masks, antibacterial, etc... Protect yourself.

Take a course, or at least buy a book. My textbook is 'critical care for first responders' (I think that's the name)...

Ask your local volunteer firefighters, what courses they have, and what books they recommend.

In response to a bag, build your own.


Think of scenarios that you MIGHT be able to help, and what you would need to fix it.

Someone breaks their leg spin kicking a zombie in the head... Splint, bandages, ice, etc...

Someone sliced by assassin ninjas? Suture kit, alcohol to clean wounds...

Someone accidentally shoot themselves in their leg, quick drawing against Soviet invaders?... Suture kit, splint, compression bandages...

Etc...

As much Cipro and other antibiotics as you can stash away also Potassium Iodide to protect against radiation sickness. Never know what scenario will lead to EOTWAWKI...might as well be prepared. In a world without properly operating sewage and water treatment systems Dysentery, Cholera and other water borne diseases will run rampant...plan on having a means to filter and purify all of your drinking water.

Most first aid kits are fine for getting a splinter out of your finger, or putting a bandaid on your papercut.

For my gear- blood clotter. Large compress dressings. clean plastic large enough to cover wounds that penetrate into the lungs (google sucking chest wound) couple of ACE bandages- not only for sprains, but can be used to hold splint or dressing in place. Disposable space blanket. Gloves.

In my MEDICAL gear, I have prescription meds (my Doc is also a hunter, shooter, and back country hiker. He knows I do not self medicate except in an emergency) They include Cipro, a Z pak, pain meds, Pen VK, Potassium Iodide (nuclear power plants in the area) immodium, aspirin, and some lidocaine (topical anesthetic). Yes, have a suture kit (suture self ) some good hemostats.

I have a complete field surgery kit and first responder training. I can do anything from treat a cut to treat you for severe blood loss while removing the bullet and closing you up.

Superglue was used in Vietnam era medical kits. It worked, but had a high rate of infection, So they developed dermabond. Just a thought before you go filling yourself with superglue. Also, very rarely do you need to stitch a wound, they do that to minimize scar tissue.
