Lots of decent set ups here. Just an observation though, lots of folks have iv catheters for access or chest decompression or both. However, I've seen only one poster that actually HAD any variation of sharps container. Not for nothing folks but getting stuck, even if you used the needle on grandma, just ain't no fun. So what exactly do you guys intend to do with your sharps? Various government agencies frown most expensively on improper disposal of infectious medical waste. Even if you are in a SHTF scenario and there is no government anymore, operational security (keeping your ass and your wounded buddy alive) may dictate that you don't want to make it easy for folks to find you. So when you police shit up, what exactly do you propose to do with your sharps? Stick em in your pocket? Bury them? If you bury them, would you still want to handle a dirty sharp anymore than you had to? Needles are necessary sometimes, but as helpful as they may be, they are dangerous things.

Well, here is my FAK for my bug out bag. It is no trauma kit, but I think it is a pretty well rounded basic kit.

Image


Maxpedition F.I.G.H.T. Pack
(2) 5" x 9" dressings
(5) 4" x 4" gauze pads
(5) 3" x 3" gauze pads
(5) 2" x 2" gauze pads
(4) knuckle bandages
(2) fingertip bandages
(1) emergency blanket
(1) cold pack
(10) wound closure strips
(10) antiseptic wipes
(2) 2" x 3" bandages
(9) 3" bandages
(9) 2" bandages
(1) moleskin
(1) first aid instruction booklet
(1) quick clot sponge
(2) triangular bandages
(2) pairs non-latex gloves
(12) generic Immodium
(15) tablets generic Alleve
(15) tablets generic Benadryll
(1) Aloe Vera burn treatment
(1) Clear Eyes eye drops
(1) Hydrocortizone
(1) Neosporin
(1) Chapstick
(1) 1" x 10 yds tape
(1) pair of scissors
(1) 3" Ace bandage
(1) 4" Ace bandage
(1) chem light
(1) non-mercury thermometer
(1) irrigation syringe
(1) mini-magnifying glass
(1) set tweezers
(1) package of wet wipes
(1) 36" SAM Splint

Believe it or not, all of that stuff is packed into the F.I.G.H.T. pack, but it is straining the zippers! Plus it has to go in a certain a way. Of course, now it is all on the table since I had to take it out to count it and I just can't bring myself to repack it right now!

Well, there it is. I feel that in an emergency situation, I know how to use all the stuff in there except for maybe the Quick Clot but that would be a last resort anyway.

Reciently I did a minor upgrade of my car first aid kit, and here is a picture of how it stands at the moment. Its only small in comparison to many of your kits, but it suits most of my day to day (or away from home) emergencys.
I don't have a picture of the bag its in at the moment, which is a butcher job of an old backpad i had which the zipper no longer worked, far from ideal, but it wouldn't fit in its old roll up bag anymore

Stiffman,
I'd say you have a pretty nice car FAK there. Good job.

My BLS and Airways Bags, Part 1
Front Compartment of BLS Bag


Though I'm especially new to this site, I am not new to the art of SERE, wilderness survival, emergency medical care, and weapons training. I currently am a NREMT-FR, firefighter, and am trained in search and rescue and high angle rescue.

The bags shown below are my two most used ones. They are my BLS (Basic Life Support) and AB (Airways, Basic) bag. The BLS bag is manufactured by London Bridge and the AB bag by Conterra. They are by far my favorite producers of bags for the military, tactical, and outdoors based medic. When going into a situation, you must always consider all the variable and conditions and I own about 6 total medical bags for specific reasons. I don't actually have a traditional EMS bag; the ones they resemble a duffel and can be slung over a shoulder. I really have no use for those types of bags and they are very specific to a EMS individual that has the ability to safely drive to and transport their patients, as well as a huge amount of resupply waiting for them whenever they need it.

And first and foremost, I am trained to use all the equipment in these bags, and much more. I don't, however carry many ALS items because I am not NREMT certified to have them in my bag and I could loose my job having those items without proper credentials since I often use this bag at work. If it were ever to come to the situation where ALS equipment had to be used and we were in a SHTF scenario, then by all means I would be using it, and carefully. One thing you won't see in my bags though are things that I don't know how to use. You can do much more harm then good trying to do or use something you don't know how to and should never over step boundaries and I feel that everyone should understand that. Just because you have an ET tube doesn't mean you should use it unless you know how to.

Exterior:
Image
The bag is olive green and displays one of my certification cards in the open window, I store my primary EMS cards in my wallet. Below that I have an IR Medic patch located on the exterior of the bag.

Side View:
Image
On the sides store my 7.5" EMS Trauma Shears. They're close and be grabbed in a hurry. The bag can expand to a very large size and has 6 compression straps located around the surface of it.

Main Compartment (Hemorrhage/Massive Trauma) Top View:
Image
The outermost portion of this bag has been designated the trauma and hemorrhage area of the bag because it contains enough elastic loops and is designed to accommodate many gauze and compression wraps as well as all of my surgical tools.

From top left to top right:
1x Nitrile Gloves
1x Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT)
1x Sharpie Marker (to mark time tourniquet was applied on pt.)
10x Cardinal Health Tongue Blades, Sterile
1x #22 Scalpel
2x Straight Forceps
1x Kelly Curved Forceps
1x Surgical Bandage Scissors

From bottom left to bottom right:
2x 2" ACE Elastic Bandage Wrap (I know theres only one, I keep two but used one at an accident)
2x 4" ACE Elastic Bandage Wrap
2x 6" ACE Elastic Bandage Wrap
2x Kendall Curity Large Roll Gauze

Right Side View:
Image
In here are the most common things that I need to get to in a hurry with a trauma case.

My BLS and Airways Bags, Part 2
Main Compartment of BLS Bag


Main Overview
Image
I didn't go exceptionally far into detail describing this part of the bag, but it still has decent descriptions, anyone who knows this model of a LBTC Bag or an imitator such as the Blackhawk S.T.O.M.P. will know that there are two internal modules. One for ampules and injectable meds and one for airways or IV sharps and syringes. You will also notice that mine aren't in the bag. I had them taken out because I just used this bag at work and those modules contain ET tubes, combi-tubes, and an extensive array of syringes and injectables I'm trained to administer but do not currently hold a cert for. In place of those, I have a set of air splints (lower part of bag), and a OTC drug module. The lower portion of this main pocked is designed to serve for immobilization and the upper for medications and cumbersome equipment such as bottles and tubes.

Lower Portion; Immobilization
Image

Contents
2x Aluminum Finger Splints
1x SAM Splint

Air Splints
Image
Air splints are one of the little known pieces of immobilization equipment, and though they're not perfect, they definitely serve a very good role in emergency medicine. They are traditionally very expensive and thats why they don't find their ways to many bags, but I received mine for free so thats why there.

Large Items
Image

Left to Right
5x 2x4" Kendall Telfa Xtra Absorbant Island Dressing
5x 16x29" Barrier Sterile Field

Hoi richard, wat voor merk tassen zijn dat en waar heb je ze vandaan? Ziet er goed uit!

Hi richard, what's the brand of those bags and where did you get them from? They look pretty good!



Hey Jim,

They are Elite Bags (Spain).

I have them from http://www.medisave.co.uk/emergency-res ... 10093.html
But you can also buy them in the Netherlands but then they you pay a bit more. http://www.rescuetools.eu/?menu=categor ... yID=513662

New level II FAK for home/outdoor use.

The bag is a rescue-essentials first responder waistpack. Very comfortable to wear and it holds a reasonable amount of equipment.

Image

Side pouch holds a benchmade 9 hook and a pair of gloves for quick access


Image

There’s also another pouch in which I put some items that are used a lot on the trail. This way I won’t have to take off the pack for a simple bandaid.

- assorted adhesive bandages
- Antiseptic spray (benzalkonium chloride)
- Large roll of athletic tape
- Pelican 2130 flasher


Image

- vacuum packed space blanket ( not a heatsheet because of bulk and I’ve got a heatsheet blanket and bivvy in my hiking-pack)
- 2 more pairs of nitril gloves

Image

Front pouches:

- ziplock bags for irrigating wounds or storing items
- streamlight stylus pro (headlamp already in hiking pack)
- Fiskars scissors (cut better than EMT-shears)
- marker, waterproof notebook not shown

Main compartment, everything is waterproofed by vacuumpacking or aloksak bags.

I think you'll find that if you severely bend a C-Collar, and then expose it to heat/cold of weather, it'll crack when you go to use it. If you must store it other than flat, hook it up in it's circle and store stuff in and around it. That's what we do with our Wilderness kits, we have two collars, adult & pedi, adjustable, wrapped around the fleece sleeping-bag/blankets we carry in the WMED bag. While it's long enough to store them flat, I find they often fit better, if they've been "fitted" for a while.

This is the FAK linked from my sig. It is largely unchanged since I posted it.

Comments and criticism, as always, are very welcome.

I have realized that it needs some more work. Some input on useful addition would be much appreciated.

Thing that I've thought of adding:
Instant cold packs.
Instant hot packs.
SAM splint, IF I can find one.

My main Fak. It goes with me in my car, on scoutcamps, when camping and so on.

The bag:
Image
It's an ordinary army issue FAK bag, intended to be carried by the squad or platoon medic. It can be attached to a backpack, carried in a tactical vest or as shown here, in the included shoulder strap.

The bag is made from some kind of rubberized nylon and it's pretty much waterproof. The lid closes with velcro.
Image
The bag opened.
Below: the contents.
Image

Much of this was included in the bag when I got it, I added some things* though.
From top to bottom, left to right.
Small mirror.*
Roll of Bandaid.
Some tape. Usually there is some coach-tape there as well, but I used it up and will buy more soon.
Gauze pads. Two packs of five each.
Foam pad, used when treating blisters and sores on the feet.
Straps for attaching the bag to a backpack.
The box labeled 91 contains safety pins.

Second row.
Pecils and erasers.
Burn dressing.
Field dressings. Basically a gauze pad with a roll of gauze attached to it. Standard Swedish Army issue. There are ten of these in the bag. Normally, there are two or three but I added a couple.
Stainless MORA knife with a pair of tweezers jammed into the hilt.*
EMT shears.

Third row.
Four rolls of bandages.
Compeed blister Bandaids.*
Alcogel skin desinfectant.*
Helosan salve, for dry skin.*
REMOVED
Talcum powder.*
Wound desinfectant. Now replaced with a small bottle of 70% alcohol.*

Not shown: A bunch of nitrile gloves.

Apart from this i carry a smaller FAK in my EDC/GHB bag, this will be added as soon as I have taken some pics of it.

Please, fire away.

<EDIT>
Here's the smaller bag from my EDC.
Image
The bag.
Painkillers.
Pocket mask.
Rescue blanket.
"Mitella" triangular bandage.
Large wound dressing.
Sutures.
Nitrile gloves, 4 or 5 pairs.
Roll of bandage.
Tape.
Small wound dressings.

Not shown: Steristrip suture tape and EMT shears. I forgot them in my car.
