Re: Need help protecting spare water filters for my Katadyn

GOOD FINDS! That mortar round tube is exactly what I need, just smaller. I think I propbably will end up just fabricating them.

Need help protecting spare water filters for my Katadyn Exp

Hello everyone, My team uses Katadyn Expedition water filters when they are in remote locations. I provide them each with a spare filter just in case one breaks or gets to clogged up. One of my guys broke his spare filter yesterday and at $200 a pop, it gets expensive replacing them. I can fabricate...

Re: Medium Sized Tactical Aid Bag Suggestions

I love the Mystery Ranch RATS, but it's out of my price range. The STOMP is too big. I remember my medics carrying those big bitches in Afghanistan and they ended up weighing 60 plus pounds. I like the size of the Chinook and TSSI bags. I do want to clarify that my WFRs aren't humping around the jun...

Medium Sized Tactical Aid Bag Suggestions

Hey guys, I'm looking for a few aid bags for work. The bag I am looking at is the Chinook Medical Operator Pack. I am wondering if any of you have any good suggestions on any other bags. I have looked at LBT bags and the STOMP IIs are too big. I just want to check all my options before dropping $2,5...

Re: To poop or not to poop, that is the question

I was in Nicaragua a month ago and I didn't go for 6 days. I was just eating beans and rice so that might have been part of it. Im headed to Nepal in two weeks, so I will cross my fingers.

To poop or not to poop, that is the question

I know most of the posts on here are about traumas and WSHTF situations and other cool guy stuff. I came across this and sparked my memory that most casualties in a war (80% or more) have injuries or illness that are Duty/Non Battle Related (DNBI). The biggest thing that I have seen is GI issues. Ei...

Re: I need your opinion on developing a First Aid Course

I agree. I have done CPR over 30 times, with and without an AED. None of them lived more than 12 hours. It just opens a small window of hope, and unless they are in an ER or ATLS Rig at the time, odds are pretty low. However, I think it could be beneficial on lightning/electrocution patients where t...

Re: I need your opinion on developing a First Aid Course

Good point on the industrial accidents. On these build sites there aren't any power tools though. There isn't even electricity so we don't have to worry about that. Its straight up old school mixing cement on the ground with sand and water from the closest river. Its pretty cool to see the building ...

Re: I need your opinion on developing a First Aid Course

Thanks for the input. Good call on the hygeine portion. I will put that under PM. I did a teleconference on ebola with my West African countries and I really focused on hand washing. It never hurts for them to hear it again. But I also told them not to touch dead people or eat bats. Which are two th...
