Since I am new to this great site I figured I would post my Aid bag and a good first post. First my background, I am a US Army Reserves Medic. I just came off active duty about 9 months ago and I am currently serving 3 years in the Reserves here in Colorado. I work at a local ED as a ED tech. Its a good job with a great hospital, the largest level 1 hospital in Denver. I am a NREMT-P with ACLS, PALS, PEPP, and PHTLS. I am a TCCC trainer. I love what I do and would change for nothing...well unless the Army wants to send me to PA school then maybe I would change. Joys of living in Colorado is they do not handcuff us as EMS. Our rule 500 and state directives are very open and leave a lot of room for EMT-B and medics to do quite a bit. I have about 10 maybe 12 IFAK's and aid-bags just laying around my house. I have one I keep in my car I have my Army medic bag. I have a wilderness bag that I take out when I am hiking. The one I am going to show you is what i call a mission bag. It has most everything I would need to provide complete care for a short mission in the field. As I do not know it all I am of course open to any and all suggestion thank you.

First thing First my bag of choice.

Here is my First Responder Bag from Tactical Tailor. Originally I stocked it with the contents of my Combat Life Saver Bag but needed to make some room for a Pocket Mask. By switching out the Israeli bandages for their less bulky equivalents offered by North American Rescue I was able to add a pocket mask and one additional 6” trauma dressing.

Hey guys,

I hope this is ok to post, it's a youtube link to my first aid kit (I only started uploading to youtube last week). If not, feel free to delete it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6suj4t3ZgQ

I'd just like to say, that the quality of the stuff people post on zombie squad is truly amazing. No matter how much I improve my preparedness on any issue and begin thinking that I'm doing pretty good, I can always come here and be humbled to no end. The stuff some people have makes my first aid kit look puny, even though my friend (the only one I even bothered telling about it) thinks I'm insane for having an iFAK. After that, I didn't even bother telling other people about preparedness.

Anyway, if anyone would like to comment on what's inside, what can be improved, added, removed, etc. please feel free to do so on the video. Any comments, critical or not, are appreciated.

Keep up the great work!

Since I am kinda new to the forum, a bit-o-my background for context:

- PharmD, practiced for 15+ years in large teaching hospital
- Practice areas - ID, Pulm, ICU & Trauma Team
- Certs: ACLS, PALS, EMT-B (expired, renewing in summer), WFR (current), Tac Med/TCCC (no cert)

Here's my approach. I have multiple mobile FAKs: 1) Hiking/Mountain Biking (MTB) First Responder IFAK, 2) Truck FAK (Trauma kit) and 3) BOB FAK. These kits are modular and support each other. This post is for my Hiking/MTB IFAK.

First off, you can only use what you actually have with you. What's back in your truck at the trail head is of no use. So ... My MTB IFAK had to fit in the smallest backpack that I take onto the trails (for hiking or mountain biking). In this case it is my Camelbak MULE, mountain biking hydration backpack. So the entire contents of what I would carry must fit in this. Second, I must be trained in the use of the items. Reading a field guide while performing an emergency procedure or "winging it" is not cool - IMHO.

Image

In this Camelbak MULE bag, I carry my 1) EDC : cell phone, G19 and 1 additional mag, Spyderco folder, Gerber Infinity Ultra light, 2) 3L Hydration bladder filled, 3) Bike kit and micro pump, 4) My IFAK.

I found that the best sized case that would fit, was the Medical Accessory Bag from my Blackhawk Stomp 2 bag.

Image

So, what do I put in this bag? Well, I wanted to treat the most likely things that I would see on the trails, and since the concept for this kit is - I am still operating in a "civilized" medical system (ie EMS is a phone call away), I don't need the STOMP bag.

What am I planning to treat, based on what have I seen? Well, I have seen lots of things that you would expect from MTB Bike crashes and hiking. Namely, fractures, open wounds, head injuries, eye injuries, and penetrating wounds. I have also seen the occasional severe hypoglycemia and MI. I have never "seen" on the trails, but carry for myself, supplies for anaphylaxis. Kit Goal: Stabilize until EMS in on scene which can be a bit back on the trails. I could of course perhaps use/need lots of other stuff (emergency cric, IVs, etc), but I am space limited.


Image


Image

Nitrile Gloves
Pocket CPR mask
Trauma Shears
Hand Sanitizer Wipes

NG (28fr + lube)
OPA (Guedel Red and Yellow Adult not pictured)
Petrolatum Gauze (x2)
Duct Tape
Durapore 1" tape

4" Izzy Emergengy Bandage
Z-Pak Gauze
Kerliz
QuikClot Combat Gauze

Tincture of Benzoin
3M Steri-strips
Tegaderm wound cover
Bandaids (Large and medium)

Triangular Bandages/Cravats x2
3" ACE Elastic Bandage

InstaGlucose (I use cake icing)

EpiPen
Benadryl (50mg)

Aspirin 325mg (first dose for MI)
Ibuprofen (200mg x 4) for when I crash ;)

Emergency Eye Wash (can also irrigate wounds)

Emergency Blanket

Notepad
Pen
Whistle (to signal EMS)

Image

What is "missing" is C-spine collar and/or SAM splint, but I just don't have room and therefore don't carry. Also, WFR teaches plenty of ways to improvise spine and fx stabilization with what I have in my current kit and the environment around me.

I'll post my other kits as I have time. - Jim

Some background on me, I am an ARC First Aid/CPR instructor and I am Army field sanitation trained. The two FAKs I have are more based more around what I need for my job, but are being redesigned for survival and larger wounds.

My "Large" FAK
Image
Attached to my Spec-ops T.H.E. pack, this used to be my main EDC bag, but due to stupid rules at work, I had to get a different EDC bag.

Image
Image
The contents are:
Field dressings (2)
Antiseptic cleansing wipe (5)
Alcohol cleansing pads (4)
Castile soap towelette (2)
6% Benzocaine wipes (2)
Medical tape (1)
Ibuprofen (2@200mg)
Acetaminophen (2@500mg)
Asprin (2@325mg)
Disposable thermometer (1)
Moleskin (2"x2")
Cotton swabs (10)
Tweezers (1)
Tongue depressor (1)
Gloves (4)
2" roller bandage (1)
Knuckle bandage (2)
Finger-tip bandage (2)
Large band-aid (5)
Medium band-aid (5)
2" sterile sponge (2)
2-1/8x2-5/8" eye pad (1)
2"x4" oval band-aid (2)
5"x9" abdominal pad (1)

My new EDC bag
Image
A Maxpedition Jumbo S-type, this FAK is not complete yet, but figured I would post pictures of it as it is, before my ADHD causes me to... Oooh, shiny!

Image
A Maxpedition FR-1

Image
Image
The contents are:
Neosporin (1)
#7 bandage scissors (1)
Sharpie marker (1)
Fingernail clippers (1)
Cleansing wipes (2)
Carmex (1)
1" medical tape (1)
Medium band-aid (15)
3"x3" sterile gauze pad (10)
3" ACE wrap (1)
Orange Zip-fizz (1) The Zip-fizz is more of an inside joke between me and a buddy, basically it's an energy drink that provides 41667% of your daily B-12...


As far as my small bag goes, I know I need some things, some I couldn't find locally, others were a bit too spendy this week. If you have any suggestions on what I should add, PM me, but so far I plan to add:
SAM splint
Steri strips
Kerlix (2 or more rolls, if they'll fit)
Iodine wipes
OTC painkillers

Ok I'm putting this out there for critique (pm me to stay with the rules of the thread). I'm by no stretch of the imagination an emt/paramedic this is pretty much just thrown together based on my knowledge and skill level as a former Marine Infantryman. I keep this in my Jeep, but take it out when I hit the river to kayak. I can post descriptions later if anyone's interested. ImageImageImageImage

This is by no means a 'combat' ready kit but already things are changing within this kit. Much more haemorrhage controls going in. I already have CATS and am waiting for more suture supplies etc.

Working on a full on Trauma bag but that is a few weeks away, I have to buy all this myself and anything else I want so it can take a little while to get things together.

Anyway, amazing kits here guys.

Regards

Chris

Hello,

I’m just posting my kit for your critique. I’m a police medic with a UK force and use this bag when on operational duties and also as my personal family kit. My core role is uniformed response but bring my medic training to calls as required…mostly patching up drunks unfortunately. I always seem to be tied up somewhere when a decent trauma comes in :wink:
Medications are conspicuously absent as I am not permitted to administer any other than helping the patient with their own.
I also have access to an AED and oxygen therapy equipment which are not pictured as they are a shared kit so stay in the station for all the medics to use.
Let me know what you think guys.

Image
The bag is a Blackhawk Special Operations Medical Pack which was bought out of pocket as I only get issued a medic vest which is not practicable to use for regular duties. On the compression straps on the outside of the pack I have added a couple of trauma shears and a roll of duct tape.

The front of the bag houses a flat zip pocket which holds the following;
Image
Medic Forms, pens and some laminated aid-memoirs.
Nitrile gloves (x loads)
Alcohol hand sanitiser
Biohazard bags
Additional trauma supplies:
- 3x SP Services T4 trauma dressings
- 4x NA Rescue S-Rolled Gauze for wound packing

Opening the bag reveals my catastrophic bleed section and general wound dressings pouches.
Image
The zip pouches contain the following items;
Image

Top Left
2x CAT tourniquets (Orange)

Top Right
4x NA Rescue S-Rolled Gauze for wound packing

Middle Pouch
2x SP Services T6 trauma dressings
2x 6” ‘Israeli’ ETD
1x CELOX 35g Granules

Bottom Pouch
ABD pad dressings
- 5x 10x12cm
- 2x 20x20cm
- 1x 20x40cm
4x 10cm Conforming bandages
4x 7.5cm Conforming bandages
5x 7.5x7.5cm 5 pack Sterile Non-Woven Gauze Swabs
Minor wounds pack – Various plasters, Steri-strips, non-adherent pad (telfa) dressings

Folding back the the airway/equipment board allows access to the main compartment.
Image

I have set up the airway/equipment board in my bag as follows;
Image

Oralpharyngeal Airways
- 2x Size 4
- 2x Size 3
- 2x Size 2
- 1x Size 1
- 1x Size 0
- 1x Size 00
As a side note I am aware the number of OPA's may seem excessive but I use them quite frequently as a 'screening' device for the surprisingly large number of people (read: drunks, bums and general muppets) who want to be silly and act unresponsive when I am pretty sure they are well aware of what's going on...pretty hard to feign unconsciousness with a size 4 OPA in you :wink:

Argyle Nasopharyngeal Airways w/ Surgilube sachets
- 1x 26Fr
- 1x 30Fr
- 1x 34Fr

10x Tongue depressors
2x Asherman Chest Seals
2x Petrolatum Gauze dressings
1x Nonin GO pulse oximeter
1x Adult Magill Forceps
1x Pen light
1x High Intensity white chem lights
1x Permanent black markers
1x 0.3L sharps tube

The main compartment of the bag is not particularly segmented with a large fold over bag at the top and a flat, hydration bladder sleeve to the rear.
Image

I use the fold over bag for bulky airway items and further diagnostic kit.

Diagnostics
Image
Welsh Allyn DS54 sphygmomanometer
Optium Xceed Glucometer
Littmann Master Classic II stethoscope - All black edition
Also pictured but kept with airways Nonin GO Pulse Oximeter
Tape - 2.5 and 5cm Transpore, 2.5cm Durapore, 2.5cm Micropore

BVM/Suction
Image
Ambu SPUR II Adult BVM
Suction Easy Aspirator

The bag can fold back to expose the whole of the main compartment
Image

I carry the remainder of my kit in this area
Image
2x Foil blankets
4x CAS STRAPS (1x restraint, 1x long, 2x short)
1x Roll cling film
4x Burnshield gel dressings (2x 20x20cm, 2x 10x10cm)
1x 500ml NS IV bolus - for irrigation, dressing moistening and burn cooling.
4x Calico triangular bandages
Assorted phials and sterets of normal saline and Tisept.
1x Laerdal Stiffneck Select Adult Cervical Collar
2x SAM splints
Not shown but also have a 12x30" multi trauma dressing in the back of the main compartment.

I think that about covers it. I keep changing the bag contents around but I'm quite happy with the layout for now. I would love a STOMP 2 but at the moment I'd have difficulty justifying the price having spent a fair bit on some of the contents, mainly the diagnostics. I'll probably pick up a STOMP end of the year but for now I'm very happy with the Spec Ops bag.

Let me know what you think guys, I welcome constructive criticism :)

Cheers,

Sam

Heres my FAK that's currently on my LBV. Used to have a bigger one full of mundane stuff, but since getting shot during a shooting drill or when SHTF is the biggest threat I downgraded a bit. To be added: nasal airway tube and some kind of chestseal (a ready-made product or a piece of plastic to be used with ducttape). Forgot to remove ducttape covered businesscard from the pouch, so not pictured here. Also the retaining rubberbands will be replaced with something more sturdy.

List:
Condor I-Pouch
Combatkit tourniquet
Gloves
5,5" scissors
4" izzy hemorrhage control bandage
Businesscard rolled in ducttape
Flimsy retaining rubberbands, likely to be demolished during removal of tq

Honestly a lot of the FAKs in here seems like they're designed to handle everything from a cut thumb to battlefield gunshot wounds. To me first aid is just that, the very first and most basic sort of aid you can deliver. When I put together my FAK I figured minimal is the best bet as I don't want to lug around a trauma kit nor do I have the training to even use most of the stuff found in there.

Maxpedition M-2 waistpack containing:
1 large gauze bandage roll
1 small gauze bandage roll
2 3x3 gauze sponges
2 2x2 gauze sponges
6 2x2 sterile cotton pads
assorted bandages for fingers, knuckles, etc...
butterfly bandages
antiseptic cream
1 roll 1/2" wide adhesive tape
small scissors

I might throw in a few individual packets of ibuprofen and acetaminophen, but unless I'm preparing for mass casualties I think this will do just fine.

My FAK is incredibly basic compared to the stuff you guys have. I suppose that I go more for the idea of having a FAK that is light enough that I don't need to sacrifice my BoB's weight.

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/29/img0001jvj.jpg

This is the Bag when it's all packed up. it weighs about 4 or 5 pounds with everything inside.

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/16/img0003pub.jpg

This is everything laid out next to it. The contents are:


Bandaid Pack
(10 1in x 31/4 in)
(10 1 in x 21/2 in)
(10 5/8 in x 21/4 in)
2 Sterile dressings (4 in x 2 yd)
2 Sterile Dressings ( 2 in x 2 yd)
1 Self Adhering bandage (3” x 1.2 yds)
6 Johnson & Johnson Dressing Sponges (4” x 4”)
1 tube .5 oz neosporin
1 tube 1 oz cortione 10
30 cotton swabs
6 aleve caplets
8 advil tablets
24 tylenol tablets
24 benadryl tablets
hand sanitizer*
1 tube 1.5 oz first aid cream
4 oz of Robitussin
2 16 oz bottles of 91% Isopropyl alcohol
10 yds waterproof medical tape
1 mdi cpr microshield
1 combination Flashlight / Glowstick
1 pocket sewing kit
1 First Aid guide*
1 bandana*
16 3/4” x 3” bandaids*
1 Sting relief pad*
3 Antiseptic Towelettes*
2 Alcohol Prep Pads*
1 Knuckle bandaid*
1 Knee bandage*
2 Adhesive strips*
1 2” x 2” Gauze Pad*
2 Latex gloves*


I worry I dont have enough primary dressings, personally. But other then that, I feel it's better to have a light kit than one that's too big to comfortably carry it and your BoB. Anything with a (*) isn't pictured because I just bought it recently and my camera isn't cooperating.

My primary bag is my TSSI M9. I had a Blackhawk bag I set up (already posted it on here a couple years back) in my evac vehicle, but this M9 was what I'd take on my back because it has a much smaller profile and is easier to use in vehicle operations. I'm currently no longer a medic, I'm an infantryman but with my background people still expect me to play doc, so I carry this bag with me everywhere. I still have my EMT-B license and am current on CLS, so this serves as my "super-CLS" bag.

Image

On the outside I have 2 CATs rubber banded to each side's MOLLE webbing (total of 4), chemlights through the front MOLLE webbing, and an IR flag for night time IFF.

Image

In opened the bottom pocket up I carry two 500ml of hextend, all of my CLS and trucks had tons of NS so I wasn't too worried about saline fluids. Also have two 10ml saline flushes to clear out locks in the compartment along with a NARP BOA band, sharps shuttle and FAST 1 IO IV kit with a tactical traction splint - we were primarily mounted in MRAPs so a long bone injury was likely in the event of a rollover so it was good to have around. Its hard to see, but the black bag on the right side is the case for the splint.

Image


I set my IV bag kits up in what I call "burritos". It had an IV lock kit, tubing and fluids and was rolled up in a cravat held together by tape which could be used to secure the tubing and catheter down while saving a lot of space.

Image

When you opened the main compartment the first zippered pouch on the flap panel was my "gay shit" pouch; I kept various meds (usually diphenhydramine, ibprofin, loperamide) as well as a minor wound kit with bandaids, 2x2s, telfa dressings, and steristrips along with antibiotic ointment in it.

Image

I use the panel that came with the bag instead of using the one where you could make your own with tie downs. I keep 2 14 ga 3 1/4" NARP ARD needles in it, 2 Hyfin dressings and 2 ACS as well as a set of trauma sheers, exam light and a red and black sharpee.


Image

In the pouch beneath the chest injury panel I have four of the NARP needleless saline lock kits as well as a couple constricting bands.

Image

The zippered pouch on the top of the main compartment I use as my diagnostic/tool pouch. I have about 10 pairs of the little black talon gloves that are rolled up in each other, an Onyx 9500 pulse oximeter, a Littman Cardiac Pro stethoscope, two rolls of 3" medical tape, a small green lens exam light and an Epipen.


Image

One of the best things about this bag was its wide open layout. As soon as you open it pretty much everything is right there for you.

Image

Below the zippered pouch, in the first of the open top kangaroo pouches, is my airway section. I have 2 NPAs with lube, a NARP cyclone pocket BVM, an EZ Suction bulb and a Size 5 King LT kit.

Image

Beneath that is part of my bleeding kit, its got three rolls of Quick clot combat gauze, three 6" Emergency trauma dressings and a large abdominal sized ETD.

Image

Under that has four rolls of S-rolled gauze, two hemcon bandages, two ACE wraps, two cravats, and a NARP Crikit. The Crikit is sort of out of place in the bleeding pouch, but it was the only place where it would fit.

In the back mesh pocket I've got two unrolled SAM splints and a c-collar as it is a necessity in the event of a vehicle rolling over.

"There's no bruise or cut on 'em, but why ain't they breathin'?" :!:

Don't forget--

CPR will give a cardiac arrest victim a 5% chance of survival until s/he gets to the emergency room.

An AED on site will give a cardiac arrest victim a boost up to 60%-85% chance of survival until s/he is stabilized in the hospital.



An AED may seem expensive at first, but it would be a wise investment down the road. Invest in your Loved Ones if you believe it will improve the odds of survival.

I use a M9 Aid Bag I jacked from my Aid Station before I left Fort Stewart, GA. Its a basic jump bag, and I prefer it to any other simply because of the size and weight. During my second deployment, I mostly used a USGI TC3 bag for the same reasons (I actually still have it), but this M9 bag is definitely my favorite. At the moment, it's a 99% trauma set-up, but for now it'll suffice. I have enough medication and other medical supplies in my apartment to equip a small .

I always carry enough supplies for at least three casualties, ranging from ACE wraps to USGI Combat Gauze (which, btw, I absolutely LOVE), tourniquets, Israeli's, etc. I also carry a 1000ml bag of Ringers in the very bottom compartment for obvious reasons. I use to have loads of normal saline, hextend and banana bags, but they all went to use at some point or another through out my Army career.

Ill be constantly updating this bag since I have a new job at a private ambulance company in town. Theyre pretty cool about employee's pulling supplies off the shelves as long as you don't over do it. Pretty stoked about that since now I can keep certain meds and solutions up to date without having to worry about where Ill get them next.

I tried to find the guy I got this idea off of...I always had a nice suplly of medical stuff, but thanks to whom-ever it was that gave me the idea on here to put it in a tackle box...

Here's Angel Of Wars Field hospital (along with two vehicle first-aid kits, a m3 bag, LC1 paratroopers IFAK, and some other goodies...

The whole get-up:
Image

Main kit upper sections:
Image

And the contents of the lower section: (includes a Mini-mag LED and a Rayovac headlamp with Eneloops batteries...reliable R/C's that don't leak and only need charged every 6 months to ensure a good charge)
Image

The two vehicle...items are mostly indentical, just have to top them off with a few items...
Image
Image

LC1-Paratroopers FAK...this will be for small hiking trips, etc., or something I can throw in my range bag...
Image
Image

M3 Bag (still need a few items for this)
Image

Some LC1 Compass/First Aid Pouches with survival blankets/heat pads, and some extra military bandages/gauze
Image

A waterproof comtainer with a spare stockpile of body/hand-warmers:
Image

Some spare medical stock:
Image

What ya think? CONSTRUCTIVE criticism welcome...I know I need a few more items, like a nasalphagenal airway, chest seal, another SAM-splint. I'd like to get several Israeli Bandages, and torniquets, and maybe 4-5 packs of quick-clot. I'm a certified SABC instructor, and while I can't give some-one an IV, I'm seriously looking into becoming an EMT after i retire from the military. I know enough to stabilize people, control serious bleeding, and treat minor first aid-injuries (heat stroke, shock, frost-bite, dehydration, etc.) as well as battle-field injury treatments (bullet wounds, broken limbs, massive bleeding, burns, etc.).
