Trauma Bag Shopping

Post by Madrik » Wed Jan 16, 2008 11:07 pm

Hey. I searched through the forums (well, a bit, since I'm short of time) and didn't find anything on getting started on the trauma bag. I get all my gear from Galls.com

Is there a place you medics recommend to purchase my equipment? My trauma bag needs a space for O2 and pharyngeal airways. I can cover everything else.

Here's an idea: You guys make your own ZS Medic bags. Very nice. Why not produce them?

How big a bag do you want? Is it for carry or truck?
For a large bag you can get everything in, I use a Thomas bag.
Pricey, but well made and roomy.

Basically because everyone's trauma bags/FAKs are different, so no matter how good of a bag you try to produce, folks will still want to change something. also, some folks have different stuff int heirs that they know how to use, that laymen may not. This is a liability issue (moral if not legal) if someone tries to use equipment or supplies to perform measures they've never trained for and causes harm, if not death.

I'd try a hook/loop interior where the bag came with several pouches of the buyer's choice. You could have a dozen different pouch models, and they could pick a number based on the cost/size of the bag.

(Sorry guys, I tried, just can't keep my mouth shut), sooooooooo, Madrik, do you have any medical experience? Have you ever rendered medical aid? Which country would the bags be made in? Where you ever in the military? Are you familiar with modules? Do you currently use a particular medical bag to rescue folks? Who makes it?

sorry for reviving an old post, but I don't think you could even design a 'universal trauma bag' the requirements are too varied. My work kit has just changed to better suit what we do, but we now have a walk kit for remote area work. same job, two completely different packs. don't even start me on personal kits

I like the RATS from mystery ranch and most everything Chinook medical makes, the longbow in particular.

Back country access has some good packs as well.

Have you used the RATS for Point of injury treatment? I guess I am too used to elastic loop and compartment setups to jump on board with modular zip pouches 100%. I mean, obviously Mystery Ranch makes a great product, I just am far more used to STOMP panel type bags for POI, with pouches for sick call, follow up, etc.

I used the RATS for fallen angel recovery when I was working out of Kandahar. I carried a Stomp II when I was on a truck but for a lighter bag, slimmer profile, and good waistbelt I liked RATS when we were getting into CSAR. I go back and forth netween liking compartments and hook and loop bags. I used pouches out of my London Bridge bag in my RATS most of the time on that deployment.
