    GSW/Blowout kit.

    I obtained a Blackhawk rig today, and I pieced this together from the supplies I have for the med pouch.


    Contents include:
    -CAT Tourniquet
    -Velket Tourniquet
    -Compression Bandage
    -Shears
    -30 Airway
    -(6) alcohol wipes
    -(2) 4.5"x4yd compressed gauze
    -(2) Kerlix
    -Ace Bandage
    -(2) sets rubber gloves
    -37x37x52 bandage with eye cup
    -Tape

    I'm thinking I need to include safety pins, Duct tape, 14g needle for chest decompression, pain relievers.
    Let me add that I do not intend to use anything I am not trained to, but hopefully someone will know how to use on me if necessary. I'm also building a pretty much identical kit, just with duplicates of what is listed above and a couple Sam Splints to go into my range bag.

    Great idea.

    Don't stop at this point. A lot of Red Cross agency's offer advanced training in first aid and emergency classes sometimes for low or no cost. check with the local chapter in your community, if they don't offer classes they may can point you in the right direction.

    Thanks. I've taken basic first aid/cpr, but I'd like to take a first responder course. An EMT buddy of mine told me they only cost about $150 and they're offered every so often.

    If you run short of space, toss the eye cup. It is not something you see a lot of in BAKs.

    I'd recommend the addition of Combat Gauze or another hemostat like Celox especially in place of the eye cup or even a bit of the compressed gauze.

    John-
    Got a good source for the combat gauze?

    Thanks for the input, fellas.

    I'm trying to assemble a GSW kit by acquiring individual components.

    In a field-situation, I've considered adding a small bottle of iodine for water treatment. Is this a bad idea?

    What's wrong with iodine tablets? Much easier to carry, store and use.
