While I don't know what (3) Aqua-C's or the pack might cost, the remainder of the gear (6 x 1000cc NS, 3 x start kits, 3 x admin kits, 9 x angiocaths, and 6PR x gloves) can be purchased through Chinook for less than $43.00, so $295.00 for the kit seems a bit steep to say the least.

I also think that whoever typed the contents list for their Voyager prescription kit must have been dyslexic, as close to half the drug names are mispelled.

I agree that Chinook has great prices on the admin and start kits, but I can't find NS anywhere that doesn't require a prescription or medical authorization...I'm assuming the ones in your STOMP II were given by kind doctors? I'm wondering how you got so much awesome gear. Hextend? I don't even think most EMS rigs over here carry Hextend!

Sorry, but the words "dental" and "poop" should never appear in the same sentence- especially in a medical thread :lol:

I believe with Rescue Essentials it is still the 8% you enter code " zomsq " to get the discount . Not sure with Chinook do not order from them as much as I used to, couple of bad experiences... With Rescue Essentials (Jorian) I always get great service, etc...
BTW, I used the zomsq discount code a couple months ago and it worked, but I just put in another order and it doesn't any more. Doesn't keep me from ordering from them, they've got good prices as it is and I've been pleased with service from them.

The current code is "UNDEAD"

Apology to any ZSers who didn't see the note...

And THANKS to all - for the orders of course, but even more for good direction, gear reviews and field tests. Much appreciated.

Costco online now sell the Philips HeartStart Home AED kit in the US and Canada. Cool looking kit, just the price is out of my league at $1,500 can ($1,300 in US). Strictly for links as I have no experience with any type of defibrillators let alone AEDs.

Great thread, thanks for the links and for the discount code - I'm placing order and every little bit helps.

RE IV Fluids without a medical authorization. I have not purchased from them, but I saw http://www.bpmedicalsupplies.com don't seem to require Med Auth for IV fluids (only have 0.9%NS).

That's great... if your in Mexico. Obviously bringing back across the border would be way out of the scope of this thread, but within the scope of federal prison and a felony conviction.

Hello All

I'm 60 miles from the Mexican border. Legally, you can't bring it across unless you have a prescription.

This company is very helpful with shipping medical stuff out of the US.
Good prices, and stock Celox and the full SAM-line.

If you're a out of the US ZS'er try emailing the owner(Scott) about making an order.

North American Rescue is also a good place to look into for good trauma stuff, packs and kits. I was a Corpsman in the Navy and we buy most of our stuff from them. Worth looking into.

I second that, and also highly reccomend their PPE nitrile gloves, much better quality than others, along with a longer cuff.

Good guys, great products. The Bear Claw and Black Talon gloves are without peer afaik. Now they're berry amendment compliant and all the sewn product is stateside made, so expensive, but very good. Even their Gecko Grip tape is a cut above.

I also highly reccomend Rescue Essentials. :mrgreen: I cant wait for my shipment to get here tomarrow; you guys have quick shipping. I would actually have picked up a set of the boxed bear claw gloves, but I was trying to keep my order under $150, and my order totaled $148.59. Next time I suppose haha, but let me say they have really good prices, and a really good selection of items. And you cant beat a 8% discount :D


Edit: Received shipment this afternoon just as told. Items were packaged very well and very neat inside of the box. Will definitley order from them again.

I know it's not a store per-se, but due to a few below described purchases I really think ebay is underrated for medical supplies. Finding a good seller is key though.

Over the last week I bought the following

- Lot of 2 Hem-Con 4x4 bandages for $16 + $2.99 ship. From Chinook Med a single HemCon 4x4 retails for over $150

-North American Rescue CAT (Combat Application TQ) for $10.51, retails at apprx $35 plus shipping

-15 Rolls of Kendall Kerlix, for $21 shipped. Around here, I usually pay $3 per roll of Kerlix.

Just look for sellers with good ratings and comments; I use to be iffy of ebay, but have had multiple sucessful purchases since I signed up.
