okay, i've fixed a few things, expanded the capacity, and completed what i'm going to for this week. i still have more to add. here are some pictures and descriptions of what i have in here. they're crappy pictures, because i have only a webcam, hopefully not so crappy descriptions. this is my truck/ruck medical kit. it's not an extended medical kit, so it doesn't have your standard OTC drugs in it. i'll put one of those together to go IN my ruck, rather than ON it, like this one does. this first picture is of the front exterior of the bag. it's a Tactical Tailor First Responder Bag, one of two i own. the other is my butt-pack on my 2nd line gear. you can see the shears in their little spot on the front of the bag, and you can see my exterior add-on poking over the back of the bag. the straps don't stay put, and there's a lack of a top carry handle on this bag, so i fixed both problems at once by rigging the straps in an immobile position on top of the bag, so i can grab it like a carry handle. side view. you can see that the exterior pouch is MALICE clipped on the PALS webbing on the back of the bag. the pouch is an Essential Tactical canteen pouch. inside the EssTac pouch. i'll tell you later in this post what all is crammed in there, and why it's there, instead of in the main bag. the top of the FRB. there's a little zippered pouch on top that i use to hold 4 pair of 15 mil nitrile gloves. i hate the zipper on this pocket, because it's begging to put a hole in a glove if you catch it wrong. a hemcon bandage, for those who've never seen a picture of the wrapper. sorry, not opening it up, costs too much, and takes too long to get any more. HemCon has pictures of it in use, buried on their site somewhere. this is the contents of the main bag, all out on the floor. i'll tell you what's in there later in the post. if all else fails, i carry an Austrian high-speed hot lead injector, for pain neutralization. if someone is being a pain, he gets neutralized. and everyone knows, the best medicine is superior firepower. Okay, time for inventory: in the EssTac pouch, i keep the following: (6) 4x4" gauze pads (1) Israeli bandage (5) Hemcon bandages (3) Asherman chest seals the purpose of this pouch is to carry my ACS's without bending, rolling, or folding them. the FRB is too short to do so. i use it to carry more of my extreme trauma/bleeding stuff, too, so it's all in one spot when i need it. in the FRB, i keep this stuff: (20) 4x4" gauze pads (2) Israeli bandages (2) triangle bandages (6) 4" sterile stretch gauze rolls (6) 2" sterile stretch gauze rolls (10) P.A.W.S. antimicrobial wipes (1) 3.5 Oz. package of QuikClot (1) pair of 7 1/2" shears (1) MDF cardiology stethascope (1) USGI one-handed tourniquet (1) WaterJel 4x16" burn dressing things i need to add: (1) penlight (2) 1.75 Oz. QuikClot packages, to replace the one 3.5 Oz. (1) abdominal pad, and remove about half of the 4x4" pads (1) roll of 2" nylon tape (1) roll of 4" nylon tape (1) small squirt bottle of saline solution okay, now the numbers of some items may be high. that's just because i'm still lacking some things, and i had extra space, so i filled it with more things. once i learn airway, i'll add oropharyngial and nasopharyngial airways to my bag, but probably not a whole kit of both, because all sizes of both takes up a lot of space. another thing i'm adding is a new bag. this thing is too small, and too short. i'm having stuart at Essential Tactical build something i designed, which is similar to a combination of the FRB and a jump bag that an EMT or paramedic would carry. it has a lot of features that the FRB doesn't have, and a few that it does. anyways, if you would like to know why i do something some way, just ask, i'll try to explain it. or, if i can't explain it, i'll call you names. how's that sound? oh, something i'm going to add to my truck, but not to the bag itself is an adjustable C-Collar. if i'm first on an accident scene, and i have to triage and can't maintain c-spine, i'd rather put on a c-collar than just leave one patient for another. if i had the room, i'd carry two, because in most car wrecks, you have two people involved. but, i can collar one, and manually maintain c-spine, or have someone else help me out by doing it. if one passenger has neck pain, but another is bleeding to death, i'm collaring, and attending to bleeding. i'd rather have one POSSIBLY paralyzed and one alive patient than one living, and one CERTAINLY dead patient. also, i need to find out about SAM splints and their effectiveness, because i'll add one to my kit if they are. they're supposed to be really versatile, because you can cut them to size and bend them into a splint for just about any long bone, from fingers on up, and you can even use one as a makeshift c-collar if you don't have a collar handy. i'll also add an ace bandage if i do that, to aid in splinting. i'd rather use the ace than the israelis if there's no bleeding.
