Is that for refilling a D off of the tank in picture?
Or is it for refilling the tank shown?

Re: Paragon's STOMP II Medical Pack (56k Warning!)

What arrangements and supplies do you have for handling human waste and soiled clothing? When people get hurt, they very often soil themselves. Even if they don't if a rescue and transport lasts more than an hour, they will have full bladder and relief will help. I have this issue in my family. We ...

Re: Celox clot removal (after application)

Just so we can clear up any Bad advice given in this thread... If you have an established clot DONT go into the wound and try to scrape it out to replace it with superglue. The CELOX has bought you some time to get the necessary materials together to do the job properly or prolonged the inevitable i...

If it is all I had I would try to use it but if I was stocking a kit I would not plan on using latex tubing .as a TQ. Take a section of tubing and try it, I believe what you will find is that the only part of the latex loop that will get tight will be where you are twisting it tight (Where you put t...
