hey all!

When I was reading ZS (i only read the First aid portion) I saw a thread that I think we should have...One were we all just show off our first aid kits, and then we can have discussions in another thread maybe?? There will be no rules, just some...

Mandatory Guidelines

1) Pictures must be included
2) Discussion must take place in another thread
3) This is for all FAKs from the IFAK to the group FAK and above.
4) Diescriptions are highly encouraged
5) A title would be good (i.e "Climberslacker's Troop FAK")

Climberslacker's Troop First Aid Kit

The Bag (since the pictures I have put our troop number and stenciled on "First Aid"

Here is the bag looking into it

Here is a picture of the elastic loops under the flap that hold my gauze. There are 6 rolls of 2 inch gauze


Here are the contents of the largest compartment and what is stored in it.

TRIANGULAR BANDAGE 40'' 3
CINDER SUDS FOAM SOAP 1
eye pad 1 (got 3 more and moved to main left)
stethescope 1
Cough Drops 15
Calamine Lotion 1 bottle
Tape 1 roll

then there is the main compartments' left divider


it contains:
STING RELIEF PAD 10
WATER-JEL BURN LIQUID 1 bottle
ALCOHOL PADS 10
IMODIUM A D 12
EYE WASH 5
Ibuprofen 8
ANTACID 18
TRIPLE ANTIBIOTIC 22
9 iodine wipes
moleskin

Then the main compartments' right divider:

which has:
GAUZE PADS 4 X 4 20
COMBINE PAD 5X9 4
BLOOD STOPPER BANDAGE 1
Cushioning gauze 3
rehydration powder

Then there is the frontal pockets

the Left one:

which has:
QuikClot Sport 1
BUTTERFLY BANDAGE 1 box
MICRO SHIELD 1
Trauma Shears 1 pair

Then the right one:

which has:
Self adhesive wrap 1
ELASTIC WRAP 2
NOSEBLEED PLUGS 1 roll
PENLIGHT 1
Tape 1 roll
curved Kelly type forceps

Finally there are the two side pockets:

the left one:

wich has:
FORCEP SLANTED 1(moved to right front)
FORCEP SPLINTER 1(moved to right front)
Cold Pack 2
IRRIGATION PISTON 60CC 1

and the right one:

which has:
BAND AIDS (ASSORTED)
Hand Sanitizer 1 bottle
GLOVES NITRILE 5 pairs
Triple Antibiotic 3
ALCOHOL PADS 4
headlamp

the right pocket is mainly just for when there are cuts and scrapes so it has some band aids, alcahol wipes, triple anti-biotic and the hand sanitizer, so the scouts don't have to go rooting through the whole thing to find band aids.

Also not shown:

*5 biohazard bags in zippered compartment under flap
*contents list
*Sign out sheet (what you used on whom and why)

Since the origianal posting I have changed some things, they will be marked in bold... as I do not have updated pictures.

Discussion can be found here.

Good thread, it'll be interesting to see how skill levels match bag contents. I've been a first responder at this job for three years and at my previous job for another three. This gets me a free, yearly Red Cross first aid class plus monthly topical classes. With all that training I've come to the conclusion I'm ready to call 911 at a moments notice. blush My first aid kits are pretty much a bunch of guaze and tape. If someone's hurt enough to need more than that I'm not the guy to do it.

My wife, on the other hand, has a bit more hands-on experience. whistle As my doctor said to DW, "I should just teach you how to do this." Of course, it was her fault my shoulder was dislocated again, but that's another story.

Give me a few days to take pictures of my stuff and post it.

Here is the first aid kit I keep in my pack when hiking/canoeing/kayaking. In addition to this kit I keep a smaller one with bandaids, moleskin, and antiseptic wipes in my pocket at all times.


Sawyer Products hunting/fishing first aid kit in waterproof bag.


Kit opened up. It has the original components plus some others. The bottle of nasal spray in the center left is actually for use as a wound flush. It is a sterile saline solution that costs pennies compared to regular saline flush solutions.


Left side of pouch:
Top row is several large plastic bags. eyeglass repair kit, 1st aid booklet, mechanical pencil, tweezers, 1.5oz bottle of nasal saline spray.
Second row is maxipad and a 3"x3" sterile pad
Third row is a small plastic bag with medicines (aspirin, reyhdration salt tablets, benadryl, burn cream, hydrocortisone cream, iodines wipes, and cold medicine), second plastic bag holds assorted bandaids, third plastic bag holds assorted larger adhesive bandages and a sterile eye pad.


Right side of pouch:
Ace bandage, Waterproof tape, rolled guaze, maxipads

Looking at it, I think I need to add more guaze.

-Blast

p.s. I'll post my car kit at a later date.

Jim... Wow! Nuff said!

I, myself, have an Adventure Medical Kit that I've added things to over the years... Mostly medications and a few other bandages and such.

I also have a very small personal FAK that I keep with my survival kit in a small otterbox. Will have to take pictures and post later.
