Yep, each time I will replace them to get fresh meds, I will need to have him write me a new prescription. There are no legal or ethical problems with this plan, either, so any doctor may be willing to help you out with this.

Just don't expect your insurance to cover prophylactic antibiotics (meaning you're not currently sick...) like this. Thank God for Walmart.

Thanks for all the advice. Now comes a very strange question, what about searing it shut?

Lol actually I do. The problem I encountered was the super glue wouldn't stop the bleeding of a knife wound.

1) Stop the bleeding
2) Clean the wound

and then

3) Close the wound, if necessary

You don't use skin adhesive like a ziploc. The blood will just go somewhere else unless the source of the bleeding is stopped.

Cauterization makes me think of Misery, the Stephen King book, not the Cathy Bates movie. Oh, you dirty bird.

Depending on the wound, you need to close the wound with butterfly type suctures, add the super glue and then pack with gauze and pressure. As long as the knife wound isnt deep enough to sever internal organs, you are okay.

If it nicks internal organs , than you are 100% Correct that basic first aid isn't going to do dick to save your patient.

Cauterizing if you want to do that can be done with silver nitrate. Amazon.com: Silver Nitrate Applicators - Tube 100: Health & Personal Care

For bleeding that can't be stopped with pressure your best bet is to use quickclot. That stuff is AMAZING as stopping bleeding. That is unless it is a very deep wound then you should just check his or her wallet take all the cash and just leave them alone.

ZMedica - QuikClot® adsorbent hemostatic agent for healthcare providers speeds coagulation & rapidly stops blood loss: Z-Medica Corporation

With quick clot there is no need to be BURNING someone with a hot damn stick unless you are an azzhole.

Very good info. While we're on the subject, what would I use to extract a bullet?

Nothing really. If it is not endangering ones life and it is not a SHTF there are no medical services around. I am going to stabilize the injured person and seek medical help.

Bullets cause a LOT of damage and I am not skilled enough to go diggin around in someones chest or abdomen looking for a bullet. It is not as easy as it looks on ER.

Though good quality foreceps and needle holders can be had on Ebay.

forceps items - Get great deals on Business Industrial, Sporting Goods items on eBay.com!

needle holders items - Get great deals on Business Industrial, Crafts items on eBay.com!

But Tango they look the same to me.

Forceps are for holding tissue and grabbing things.

Needle holders have stiffer noses and are made for gripping and holding small suture needles. If you have sutures you MUST have needle holders or else your sutures are worthless. Also I would get the ones with the built in scissors it makes like much easier.

I do know how to suture but, it has been a long time since I have done some.
